Crack Cocaine Detox and Withdrawal

Crack Cocaine Detox and Withdrawal

Crack Cocaine Detox and Withdrawal | Introduction:

Crack cocaine otherwise known as rock cocaine (solid cocaine) is the most psychologically addictive drug on earth. Crack effects begin within two seconds after inhalation and reach peak effect within 15 to 20 seconds. Powdered cocaine is administered via injection (intravenous administration), snorting (insufflation administration), swallowing (oral administration) or gumming (sublingual administration.
Intravenous cocaine administration is fast acting, short lasting and extremely addictive. The effects of intravenous cocaine use begin less than one second after entering the blood stream. Most cardiologists believe intravenous cocaine use to be the most lethal form of drug use which is major contributor to the very uncomfortable experience of crack cocaine detox and withdrawal.

Crack Cocaine Use:.

Snorting, gumming and swallowing cocaine will affect the body significantly slower than smoking crack or injecting powdered cocaine. The delay is caused mostly by a first pass through the liver which substantially lowers the amount of cocaine left in the blood stream.

Cocaine detox is a rehabilitation program designed to promote healing by integrating a full scale mind and body recuperation system. The various systems of the body are rejuvenated through several methods which include but are not limited to medication treatment, proper nutrition, hydration therapy, vitamin supplementation and sleep disorder treatment.

Crack Cocaine Effects:

The effects of cocaine are profound euphoria and sexual excitement which drive the user to continue administering cocaine. Often a little party with powdered cocaine or crack ends when the user is broke, depressed and humiliated.

Cocaine use affects all eleven systems of the human body; cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, excretory, immune, integumentary, muscular, nervous, reproductive, respiratory and skeletal.

  • Cardiovascular system – carries oxygenated blood to various parts of the body through arteries and returns oxygen free blood back to the heart through veins.

  • Digestive system – turns food into energy.

  • Endocrine system – uses hormones to stimulate the metabolic activities of cells.

  • Excretory system – is essentially the urinary system which includes the kidneys, bladder and urethra.

  • Immune system – is the body’s defenses against foreign substances.

  • Integumentary system – is essentially the skin which serves to regulate body temperature.

  • Muscular system – is the largest of all human body systems and come in four types; tissue, cardiac, smooth and skeletal.

  • Nervous system – is the most fast acting and complex system in the human body. It is used to control and communicate to various other systems through electrical impulses that almost always create an immediate response.

  • Reproductive system – is different for men and women but is basically designed to do the same thing which is to reproduce the species.

  • Respiratory system – is designed to supply the body with oxygen through the lungs.

Cocaine use comes with severe psychological disturbances because cocaine attaches to transporters within the neurons which are part of the brain. When cocaine attaches to the brain’s transporters it blocks the re-uptake process which causes elevation in dopamine and nor-adrenaline. Increased dopamine causes profound euphoria. Increased nor-adrenaline causes increased heart rate and sexual stimulation. Increased heart rate causes systems overload which in turn causes severe dehydration which leads to muscle deterioration, chap lips, dark urine and temporary anorexia. When the body’s internal systems degrade so goes the immune system.
