Massachusetts Crack Cocaine Treatment

Crack Cocaine Treatment

Why is Crack Cocaine Addictive?

The drug crack cocaine is notably one of the most addictive substances there is. Crack cocaine is a stimulant type of drug that causes people to feel alert and hyperactive. The effects of crack cocaine on the brain cause a massive surge of dopamine to be released, which makes people feel high. Crack cocaine is essentially powder cocaine modified to be more potent. The process for creating crack from powder cocaine involves mixing the powder cocaine with baking powder and water, and then heating it until it forms a rock-like substance. The reason it is more potent than powder cocaine is that when a drug enters the lungs through smoking it, there are thousands of blood vessels available to transport the drug to the brain in seconds.

Effects of Stimulant Drugs on Your Body

The National Center for Biotechnology Information advances science and health publish numerous articles on the effects of stimulant drugs such as crack cocaine. They explain that the impact of crack cocaine is more potent because of how it is easily absorbed by the lungs, which transport the drug directly to the brain. Crack cocaine also passes through the brain’s protective layers more easily, unlike other addictive drugs.   

The lungs offer a large surface area through which the gaseous form of inhaled substances may quickly pass directly into the bloodstream. To enter the brain, a substance’s molecules must first get through its chemical protection system, which consists mainly of the blood-brain barrier. Small neutral molecules like those of crack cocaine easily pass through the blood-brain barrier and enter the brain. Once inside the brain, substances of abuse begin to exert their psychoactive effects. (NCBI)

The level of euphoria that cracks producers for the user is far greater than when cocaine is snorted. The high that people experience from the smoking crack is intense but only lasts several minutes. This is why people who are addicted to crack spend an enormous amount of money in a short amount of time. They are chasing the high. Typically, crack smokers will continue to smoke crack for hours, days, and even weeks. Crack cocaine addiction is different from other drugs because of how fast it causes addiction. Unfortunately, most people who try crack cocaine get addicted instantaneously.
