At Steps Together Rehab we understand how crack cocaine can have a major impact on your life, it is, of course, an extremely potent, fast acting high that is also relatively inexpensive.
It is a powerful stimulant that can give a user an extremely rapid and euphoric high and can have multiple effects on their body.
Crack is a smoked form of cocaine and the effects are felt quickly as the drug is absorbed into the blood stream, then through the body to the brain. The effects are quick to take hold and they also peak quickly leading to a high that lasts for about 5 to 10 minutes. Because of the speed of the high, crack addicts are often more at risk of dependency and addiction.
People that use crack can often achieve a high that produces many physiological effects which can include an inflated sense of self-importance and a released sense of reality.
Due to its powerful and addictive nature crack cocaine is highly addictive.
Crack cocaine can have some powerful physical and psychological symptoms. Insomnia, hypertension, suppressed appetite, nose bleeds and twitching can all occur as well as more damaging psychological effects such as psychotic episodes including hallucinations and paranoia.
The team at Steps Together Rehab will be able to help with the withdrawal and recovery from crack cocaine, helping the addict to become well and help them use the gift of recovery in their everyday lives.
