What Is Cocaine?

Cocaine is a stimulant drug derived from the leaves of the coca plant. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), this drug usually comes in a fine, white powder but can also come crystallized in the form of crack cocaine.

Understanding Cocaine

Cocaine is a powerful stimulant that many people use to get high and experience higher energy levels and euphoria. Many users will either snort the powder or rub it on their gums. 

Cocaine increases dopamine levels in the brain, which gives the user a euphoric feeling. Over time, the dopamine receptors become damaged and tolerance builds up, meaning it takes more cocaine than normal to feel high. 

Because of its ability to make the user feel energetic, many people suffering from mental disorders such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) use cocaine as an alternative to prescription stimulants like Adderall. It’s also a common drug of choice for people with narcolepsy

Cocaine Effects and Abuse

Cocaine has side effects similar to other types of stimulants, but the drug affects everyone differently. Protract cocaine abuse causes changes to an individual’s brain chemistry. This can lead to erratic behavior, severe depression, delirium or psychosis, and paranoia. The most common side effects of cocaine abuse are: 

  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Inability to fall asleep
  • Paranoia
  • Psychosis
  • Dilated pupils
  • Increased heart rate
  • Irritability and mood swings
  • Over-excitement

Stimulant Use Disorder

While many people view cocaine as simply a party drug, it’s highly addictive and can cause severe medical issues. Over time, cocaine can damage the central nervous system and cardiovascular system. It also increases blood pressure, and impairs your cognitive function. Stimulant use disorder is the continued use of stimulants (like cocaine / crack) despite harm and consequences to the user. 

Cocaine Addiction Treatment

Here, you’ll participate in intensive behavioral change with our cocaine addiction treatment professionals. We’ll help you become the best version of yourself without the need of stimulants like cocaine and crack.
