Cocaine is currently the most prevalent and abused stimulant in America. Cocaine abuse and addiction has numerous physical, emotional, mental, and financial consequences. Cocaine abuse spans across individuals of all backgrounds and situations, whether it be inner-city crack addicts, teenagers, or middle-class suburbanites.
According to the National Institute on Drug Addiction, cocaine abuse actually causes biological changes in the brain due to altered levels of a specific brain protein that regulates dopamine, causing the brain to adapt quickly and to become severely dependent on cocaine. Consequently, the large number of people using cocaine has resulted in a large increase in the number of people seeking cocaine treatment programs. Treatment of cocaine dependency is complex and should involve a variety of different and diverse treatment methods.
