Cocaine is a powerful and dangerous stimulant. Cocaine abuse can quickly lead to addiction, which can put a person at risk for considerable immediate and long-term harm.
When a person becomes addicted to cocaine, he or she may experience negative physical, psychological, and socio-economic effects.
Cocaine abuse and addiction can impair your ability to perform at work or in school. It may cause strife in your interpersonal relationships, which can lead to withdrawal or isolation. If you have become addicted to cocaine, you may lose the ability to control your mood, thoughts, and behaviors. You may experience financial setbacks, legal problems, and the onset or worsening of certain type of mental illness.
Cocaine addiction is a complex disease, but it is treatable. With effective professional care, you can regain control over your life and resist the compulsion to abuse cocaine.
