Cocaine Abuse and Addiction
An Enduring Substance Abuse Threat
Although its prevalence has fluctuated in the wake of the recent heroin and opioid crisis facing the United States, cocaine abuse continues to be a primary substance abuse issue in many areas of the country. Of the 53,000-plus overdose-related deaths in 2015, cocaine was responsible for over 6,000, representing an eight-year high for the drug. Most of these deaths involved some kind of illicit or prescription opioid. Cocaine is a powerful central nervous system stimulant that can render users addicted after a very short time. In 2014, over 900,000 Americans met the criteria for dependence on or abuse of cocaine. If you or someone you care about is one of these 900,000, allow RU Encore to provide the compassionate and effective music-based treatment you deserve. Call us today at 844-25-MUSIC.
