Crack Cocaine Withdrawal Treatment in South Florida
Crack Cocaine Treatment
What is Crack Cocaine?
Crack Cocaine is a stimulant drug that causes the brain to release a massive amount of the neurotransmitter dopamine that is responsible for allowing a person to feel pleasure. Crack cocaine is the crystal form of powder cocaine. It is modified from powder to rocks through a process of heating powder cocaine with water and baking soda till it forms a small crystallized rock, known as crack.
Crack is heated with a lighter and smoked either in a glass pipe or other smoking device. It is named crack because it makes a crackling sound when heated. Smoking the rock form of powder cocaine allows it to reach the brain more quickly and thus brings an intense and immediate rush that only lasts from five to ten minutes.

Why is Crack So Addictive?
Since the vast surge of dopamine occurs when someone smokes crack, it makes a person feel an overwhelming sense of euphoria. People who smoke crack report feeling invisible, destined to success, elated, and excited to be alive. This is why crack cocaine is addictive. Most crack cocaine addicts are chasing the high. Crack smokers will binge on crack for days on end and even weeks trying to replicate their first experience when smoking crack. It is an endless cycle because while crack may cause a person to feel high, the chemicals responsible for allowing anyone to feel good are becoming depleted.
Crack Cocaine is one of the most addictive drugs that exist. Normal levels of dopamine are released when someone falls in love, eats chocolate, or feels good when with family members or seeing a beautiful sunset. To explain it, dopamine, along with other brain chemicals, dictate what makes us feel pleasure and happiness. Many persons are instantaneously addicted to crack the first time they use it. In time, they will deplete the dopamine levels in their brain and not be able to feel pleasure without crack cocaine.

Many people who are addicted to crack cocaine are likely to have emotional and mental health disorders as a result of smoking crack. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports how cocaine addiction can eventually cause damage to the areas of the brain that enable a person’s ability to make the right decisions.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse:
Chronic cocaine exposure affects many other areas of the brain…cocaine diminishes functioning in the orbitofrontal cortex (OFC), which appears to underlie the poor decision-making, inability to adapt to negative consequences of drug use, and lack of self-insight shown by people addicted to cocaine.
