• Alcohol Facts
  • The most popular method is to smoke the lumps of crack in a two-chambered water pipe.
  • Chronic use can trigger a full-blown psychosis, with the same symptoms as paranoid schizophrenia.
  • Serious respiratory problems are often seen in crack users, including lung damage, chest congestion, wheezing, spitting up black phlegm, extreme hoarseness, and burning of the lips, tongue and throat.
  • Crack is a form of cocaine that has been chemically altered so that it can be smoked. The process changes cocaine into a chemical "base" which places it in a category of cocaine known as freebase.
Cocaine Recovery
Cocaine recovery is a process that a drug addict goes through on their way to sobriety. Drug addiction recovery generally takes place in drug addiction treatment centers. People recover from cocaine addiction every single day, but they rarely do it alone.

The process of cocaine recovery is multi-step. Individuals who are recovering from a cocaine addiction first need to realize that they have a problem and are willing to work towards a solution. At this point, the addict should enroll in a drug addiction treatment program. Long term drug addiction treatment programs are proven to have a higher success rate due to the fact that the individual is given more time to gain the benefits of the treatment community.

Initially the drug addict will go through a detoxification process as part of their cocaine recovery. This is only part of the initial steps of recovery; many individuals misinterpret this vital step as the "only" step and feel that they have accomplished their goal.

After detoxification the recovering cocaine addict must learn life's lessons and come to an understanding of why they began to use cocaine. There are many steps that follow and each drug addiction treatment center will go through them at a different pace and hit unique points that are of importance on the road of cocaine recovery. The most important key to finding and remaining in a drug addiction recovery program is that it is right for you.
