Cocaine addiction treatment and rehabilitation in Southampton, Hampshire
Cocaine, which is often referred to as ‘coke’, is an illegal stimulant drug that typically comes as a white powder. Cocaine is most commonly snorted, although it is also possible for it to be injected. Crack cocaine, a derivative of cocaine, is the crystallised form of this drug, and is usually heated and smoked. Crack cocaine takes its name from the characteristic popping or cracking sound that it makes when it is exposed to heat.
When taken, both cocaine and crack cocaine give the user a short-term burst of energy as well as feelings of euphoria and pleasure; these effects can be highly addictive to some people and cause tolerance to the drug to build rapidly. Without comprehensive treatment and therapy, cocaine addiction can result in a whole host of negative physical and psychological consequences, affecting your health, wellbeing and quality of life.
