Origins and Subsequent Effects

Crack abuse took off in the early 1980’s and has since skyrocketed to become a social crisis. Crack is a smokeable form of powered cocaine made with a mixture of cocaine, baking soda, and water. Unlike powered cocaine, smoking crack releases the drug instantly into the bloodstream, causing a powerful rush of sensations that hits all at once. This is followed by a quick crash that compels users to immediately start seeking more crack. This is the cycle of crack abuse that quickly turns into full blown addiction, creating an entire generation of drug addicts. These are some of the more common signs of crack addiction:

  • Vertigo
  • Weakness or Fatigue
  • Light-Headedness
  • Impaired Coordination
  • Cognitive Impairment
  • Slurred Speech
  • Dry Mouth
  • Delirium
  • Seizures
  • Drowsiness
  • Confusion
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Sluggishness
  • Headache

If you or a loved one is experiencing these or any other symptoms, please contact your physician immediately and start getting the help you need.
