Crack Addiction Treatment in Orange County

Break Free from Drug Addiction at our Beautiful Orange County Treatment Facility

The abuse potential for an illicit drug like crack cocaine, or simply “crack,” is enormous. Crack derives from powdered cocaine, and is generally much cheaper than cocaine, making it easier to acquire. Recovering from a crack addiction takes a physical and psychological toll, but with the help of certified addiction specialists, it is easier to cope. Detox is the first step to recovery, which is a medically supervised process to safely cleanse the body from crack or any other dangerous substances in the body.

Even one hit of crack can require the brain, causing the smoker to crave more of the drug to maintain the euphoric high they experienced. However, once the “pleasure signals” in the brain are tapped out, the euphoric rush is no longer possible, and instead continues to use crack as a way to overcome their physical dependence on the drug.

Short- and Long-Term Effects of Crack

Crack has a very short high, and users crave more energy once they come crashing down after the drugs wear off. They may also feel intensely depressed as they search for more crack, because the drug interferes with the brain’s reward system. The effects of crack are also far more intense and immediate compared to powdered cocaine, although the high is usually not as long.

Some of the short-term effects of crack include:

  • Paranoia
  • Tactile hallucinations
  • Bizarre behavior
  • Erratic mood swings
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Irritability
  • Dilated pupils
  • Loss of appetite

Common symptoms of withdrawal include:

  • Cravings
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Extreme fatigue, including passing out
  • Insomnia
  • nightmares

Those who try to quit crack on their own face an uphill climb trying to get sober and stay sober, particularly if their social circle has others who are actively using crack or other illicit substances.
