Fresno, California - USA (Fresno County)
Many drug rehab programs do not address specific addictions, such as cocaine addiction. Rather, they "lump" all addictions into one treatment protocol. This is sometimes not the best option, as different addictions may require different treatment methods.
Cocaine addiction is one such situation, particularly if the addiction is to "crack" cocaine. "Crack" cocaine is cocaine powder that has been mixed with a liquid and "cooked" until all impurities are burned off, leaving a pure cocaine base. As the product cools, a hard substance, sometimes called a "rock", is produced. This is not only more addictive than cocaine that has been "cut", or had other ingredients added to it, but "crack" can cause a powerful addiction after just one use.
"Crack" cocaine causes an intense "high", no matter how it is taken into the body. Smoking is the usual way in which "crack" is used; however, there have been instances where people have actually injected the liquid product directly into their veins instead of allowing it to form a solid substance. No matter how it's taken in, "crack" cocaine is dangerous, and overdose is not uncommon.
Cocaine drug rehab programs know that cocaine addiction requires its own treatment methods. Some of these methods may include the use of medication such as Suboxone as part of the treatment process; others may include helping the addict through the intense withdrawal phase that occurs with cocaine addiction (of any kind, not just "crack" addiction), then utilizes group, individual, and family therapy, as well as group support.
