Cocaine Addiction

Cocaine is known to be a recreational drug but is also highly addictive and dependency is a definite risk. Addiction is using a drug despite the negative consequences and not being able to stop. If you or a loved one cannot stop using cocaine and your life has become unmanageable it is time to reach out and get the help you need.

When you use cocaine for a long period of time, you will experience a physical dependency on the drug. When you suddenly stop using, withdrawal symptoms kick in you will use again just to get rid of the “coming down” symptoms. If you have gone from occasional cocaine use at a party to use every day just to cope, you are addicted to cocaine!

Cocaine and Other Substances

If you are using cocaine you will likely use other drugs to come down from the intense high and become dependent on suppressants. This is called poly-drug use and is very dangerous as overdose risk is increased. Many people who use cocaine will either use alcohol or heroin to come down from their high. Using heroin with cocaine is the most common cause of fatal overdose cases.
