Crack Addiction Rehabilitation Stories

It has been said that crack addiction is one of the hardest to overcome.  According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, addiction is a complex disease that cause significant impairments in the brain.  As such, the treatment process for crack addiction must be comprehensive and provide sufficient time to facilitate restoration, reengagement or improvement of neurological functions that has been hijacked by habitual consumption of this substance. However, despite its reputation, there are many crack addiction rehabilitation stories that attest to the fact that recovery is not only possible but sustainable.    Most recovering addicts like Hitla, who was lucky enough to overcome addiction, recognize the ramifications of rehabilitation.  As Hitla explains in her crack addiction rehab story… “Addiction is just the tip of the iceberg” suggesting that there are innumerable consequences beyond addiction for those who abuse crack cocaine.   According to scientists The negative effects of crack cocaine manifest quickly because of how it is consumed. When smoked, the drug is readily absorbed into the bloodstream and have a fast and direct impact on the brain. Once addiction to the drug is established, addicts will put themselves at tremendous risks to satisfy the cravings produced by this highly addictive substance. As a result, the average crack addict that do not seek or receive treatment may experience…

  • Intensified sexual urges and diminished inhibitions that put them at risk of sexually transmitted disease such as HIV and Hepatitis C.  
  • Increased aggressive and violent patterns of behavior that lead to physical abuse and harm to themselves and their loved one.  
  • Exposure to more dangerous environments in their obsessive and compulsive search to get and use this drug.
  • Engaging in prostitution and various forms of criminal activity in order to support the crack cocaine habit.  
  • Homelessness as a result of neglecting important responsibilities such as going to work, paying bills and attention to general hygiene.
  • Loss of relationships and children due to the effects of this drug on health and behavior.   
  • Illnesses associated with this drug include acute skin ulcers, blackened palms (crack hands), lung disease, malnutrition, cardiovascular disease, palatal perforation, paranoia, hallucinations, depression, severe tooth and gum disease among others.  

The first step in conquering crack cocaine addiction is recognizing the deadly consequences that can occur if drug use continues unabated.  Education is also key to understanding the progression of the disease as well as the potential for recovery.  Since symptoms of crack cocaine addiction manifest quickly, it is advisable to seek help at the onset of this disease to prevent the devastating effects of long term addiction.  Although the typical reaction to drug use is to deny that there is a problem and seek treatment as a last resort, having knowledge and understanding of the process of addiction can alleviate unnecessary suffering. Some people like Kenneth who is currently in recovery from crack cocaine said his life was never the same after he got hooked on crack cocaine.  “There was nothing that I wouldn’t do to get another hit” he said.  He describes his years as a crack addict as a hellish experience that put his life in danger on numerous occasions. Since participating in an organized program of recovery, Kenneth says he has been able to set up better boundaries.  According to Kenneth, he tells his story with the hope that it may help even one person to stay away from that horrible misery of using this drug.
