The use of Cocaine is widespread throughout the United States. It is also widely available, and one of the most expensive.
Cocaine Addiction is especially difficult to overcome, because once an individual has taken this drug it will circulate throughout the bloodstream and leave a metabolite (residue) in our fat tissue, and bone marrow. This residue can cause serious side effects like cravings, anxiety, and depression. It takes the human body 5 years to remove all of this residue from the fat tissue and Bone Marrow. Also the Cocaine will interfere with the dopamine (chemical produced in the brain for Mental Stability) and serotonin (chemical produced in the brain for pleasure) levels. This causes the addict serious depression some days while other days everything is good. Statistically cocaine addiction recovery is anywhere from 3% to as high as 76% depending on the cocaine addiction treatment chosen.
Cocaine treatment methods that are available include the 2 week detox 21 or 28 day 12 step model where the person goes into detox then a group therapy rehab to try to resolve the issue. This however is only the same end result as if you detox on your own (3%). The success rate in the long term however is always higher if the person does detox off the cocaine completely and then goes into a long term cocaine treatment center.
Cocaine addiction treatment center - there are many to choose from and they range from 2 weeks to 2 years in length. The 2 weeks being a 12 step inpatient or outpatient model. This treatment can be available in 30 to 90 day lengths as well. The success rate of this style unfortunately is only 3% to 18%.
Cocaine Detox Treatment Center - A unique method of treating heroin addiction is to address the biophysical addiction first, then the mental addiction.

Cocaine Addiction Facts Cocaine abuse and addiction continues to be a problem that plagues our nation. In 1997, for example, an estimated 1.5 million Americans age 12 and older were chronic cocaine users. Although this is an improvement over the 1985 estimate of 5.7 million users, we still have a substantial distance to go in reducing the use of this addictive stimulant. Science is helping. For example, we now
know more about where and how cocaine acts in the brain, including how the drug produces its pleasurable effects and why it is so addictive.
Through the use of sophisticated technology, scientists can actually see the dynamic changes that occur in the brain as an individual takes the drug. They can observe the different brain changes that occur as a person experiences the "rush," the "high," and, finally, the craving of cocaine. They can also identify parts of the brain that become active when a cocaine addict sees or hears environmental stimuli that trigger the craving for cocaine. Because these types of studies pinpoint specific brain regions, they are critical to identifying targets for developing medications to treat cocaine addiction.
One of NIDA's most important goals is to translate what scientists learn from research, in order to help the public better understand drug abuse and addiction, and to develop more effective strategies for their prevention and treatment. We hope that this compilation of scientific information on cocaine will help to inform readers about the harmful effects of cocaine abuse, and that it will assist in prevention and treatment efforts.
Cocaine use during pregnancy effects the infants brain Babies born to mothers who abuse cocaine during pregnancy often are delivered prematurely, have low birth weights, smaller head circumferences, and tend to be shorter. However, the full consequences of prenatal cocaine exposure on children are still unclear and are difficult to study.
In a series of recently published studies, a team of NIDA-supported researchers at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, led by Dr. Michael S. Lidow, examined the effects of prenatal cocaine exposure in rhesus monkeys. The researchers found that such exposure interferes with the production of nerve cells and leads to a significant increase in cell death in the developing cerebral cortex. They also found that, as a result of these actions of cocaine, the number and density of nerve cells (neurons) in the cerebral cortex of monkeys born from cocaine-exposed mothers is reduced, their positioning is abnormal, and the cortex lacks its usual layered structure.
"The results of these studies provide important information on the effects of prenatal cocaine exposure on the developing brain," says NIDA Director Dr. Alan I. Leshner. "Particularly noteworthy is the finding that a mother's use of cocaine during pregnancy can lead to long-lasting abnormalities in her infant's cerebral cortex, the part of the brain that is largely responsible for our higher brain functions, including visual perception, social behavior, and learning, memory and attention."
Cocaine in the preschools INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA -- A 4-year-old boy brought crack cocaine worth about $10,000 to his preschool class Monday.
Indianapolis police Sgt. Roger Tuchek said the boy took rocks of crack cocaine out of his backpack and showed them to other children in his Head Start class, saying the drugs were flour. Teachers realized it was cocaine and called authorities.
Nicotine Craving may lead to increased use of Cocaine Researchers supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) have found that craving for nicotine appears to be linked to increased craving for illicit drugs among drug abusers who also smoke tobacco. In addition, scientists say, patients in drug treatment programs may be less likely to successfully stay off drugs if they are cigarette smokers. These are the findings from two studies published this month in the journal Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology.
