Cocaine Use Disorder

Cocaine Use Disorder

Across American and all around the state of Texas there are men and women who become addicted to cocaine daily. In Texas Cocaine is ranked as the #2 threat by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) for people experiencing cocaine deaths from overdoses. This increased demand for the substance by cocaine users has created a scenario where the Colombian Cartels have dropped the price of cocaine so that more people will have access to the drug. This has created a rise in more users purchasing the substance and therefore more overdoses and people developing a cocaine use disorder. This flood of cocaine has impacted all cities in the United States including rural and major metropolitan Texas cities.

This decrease in the price of cocaine across the State of Texas is contributing to more people using the substance and is causing a public health concern. Increased Cocaine Use Disorders are being diagnosed by Cocaine Rehabs across Texas as a result of more people using the substance. People that are using cocaine are developing cocaine use disorders because cocaine is such a highly addictive substance.

What is a cocaine use disorder?

Cocaine Use Disorders are part of a larger group of disorders called “Stimulant Disorders” which is characterized by central nervous system stimulation effects. Cocaine is the most powerful naturally occurring central nervous system stimulant that creates a short-lived sense of euphoria. The heavy use of this drug can be both physically and psychologically harmful. The drug creates physical and psychological dependence. Cocaine is an addictive substance that produces both physically and psychologically addiction with a specific withdrawal syndrome that is associated with heavy usage. People who become addicted to the substance can quickly develop a tolerance to the substance and then require more of the cocaine to continue to produce euphoria or the “high” associated with the drug. Cocaine Use Disorders are made up of a pattern of cocaine use that leads to clinically significant impairments or distress, as manifested by at least two of the following, occurring within a 12-month period.

Clinically Significant Impairments or Distress from Cocaine

  • The Cocaine is often taken in larger amounts or over a longer period than was intended.
  • There is a persistent desire or unsuccessful efforts to cut down or control cocaine use.
  • A great deal of time is spent in activities necessary to obtain the cocaine, use the cocaine, or recover from its effects.
  • Craving, or a strong desire or urge to use the cocaine.
  • Recurrent cocaine use resulting in a failure to fulfill major role obligations at work, school or home.
  • Continued cocaine use despite having persistent or recurrent social or interpersonal problems caused or exacerbated by the effects of the cocaine.
  • Important social, occupational, or recreational activities are given up or reduced because of cocaine use.
  • Recurrent cocaine use in situations in which it is physically hazardous.
  • Cocaine use is continued despite knowledge of having a persistent or recurrent physical or psychological problem that is likely to have been caused or exacerbated by cocaine.

Tolerance, as defined by either of the following:

  • A need for markedly increased amounts of cocaine to achieve intoxication or the desired effect.
  • A markedly diminished effect with continued use of the same amount of cocaine.

Withdrawal, as manifested by either of the following:

  • The characteristic withdrawal syndrome for cocaine.
  • Cocaine withdrawal (or a closely related substance) is taken to relieve or avoid withdrawal symptoms.

If you have at least two or more of the above issues occurring in the last 12-months, then contact a cocaine rehab for help with your cocaine problem.

Cocaine Overdoses

There are more cocaine overdoses in Texas than with any other illegal or prescription drugs.
