Find Addiction Rehabs Updates Resources that Can Help the Crack Addict
Boca Raton, Florida -
Find Addiction Rehabs (FAR), a company based in Boca Raton, FL that offers essential resources on addiction treatment and rehab, has recently released updated resources to help people struggling with addiction to crack by discussing the signs, causes and treatment for this particular type of addiction . They have also recently published an article that explains how crack cocaine is cooked. And lastly, they have also released a guide on the impure version of heroin, which is known as black tar heroin.
Crack cocaine is a derivative of the highly addictive cocaine, which is produced by mixing cocaine with water and baking soda or ammonia. During the cooking process, this substance creates a popping or cracking sound, which is where its name came from. Crack is typically used by vaporizing it in a glass pipe and inhaling the fumes. Some may also heat the crack inside aluminum foil or empty soda cans. Inhaling the fumes allows the substance to reach the brain faster, which results into a quicker and more intense high. Unfortunately, crack users may experience other negative consequences in addition to just becoming addicted.
Cocaine is a Schedule II controlled substance, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), which indicates that while it may be used medically, there is an extremely high risk of abuse. Regular cocaine can be used as a topical anesthetic but it is rarely used for this purpose because there are more effective and less dangerous products. Meanwhile, crack cocaine is 75 to 100 percent pure, which makes it more potent and more dangerous than regular cocaine. And in contrast to regular cocaine, crack doesn’t have any accepted medical purpose. Even just one use of crack can result in a dependency.
Those who get addicted to crack may experience severe side effects. And it is possible to overdose on crack. Typical signs of overdose include: trouble breathing; chest pain; nausea or vomiting; confusion; tremors; extreme anxiety and agitation; panic or paranoia; high blood pressure and body temperature; and excessive sweating.
Meanwhile, the article on how to cook crack points out that the basic recipe can easily be found online. It usually begins with a small quantity of cocaine, which is added to water. The substance will dissolve in the water and the speed at which it dissolves usually indicates its quality or purity. The faster it dissolves, the purer it is. Baking soda is also added and the mixture is heated. Even the smallest amount of heat or flame may be sufficient. The crack cocaine will float up while the adulterants will dissolve or slowly sink. The resulting rock-like substance is used by heating it and its fumes are inhaled.
It should be noted, however, that while smoking crack offers the advantage of getting a fast and intense high, it has severe and lasting consequences and can even result in death. Fortunately, there are treatment facilities nationwide, and Find Addiction Rehabs has recovery representatives who can help find the appropriate treatment for a particular individual.
With regards to tar black heroin, this is the most dangerous version of heroin with regards to side effects from use. This may result in a decline in both physical and mental health. Long term effects include insomnia; collapsed veins for people who inject the drug; deterioration of the brain’s white matter; damaged tissue inside the nose for people who sniff or snort it; infection of the heart lining and valves; abscesses (swollen tissue filled with pus); constipation and stomach cramping; liver and kidney disease; lung complications including pneumonia; and respiratory depression.
