Crack cocaine is an extremely dangerous and popular narcotic. Like other forms of cocaine, crack creates short spurts of “highness” that trigger changes to the central nervous system. As a result of altered brain-chemical composition, it can be difficult to ever realize you have become addicted to crack until it has already caused extensive harm to your mind, body, and spirit.

At The Carter Treatment Center in Cumming, Georgia, our drug rehabilitation center utilizes a number of traditional and creative treatment methods, each one personalized for each patient.

Symptoms of Crack Addiction & Withdrawal
Using crack cocaine for even a brief number of times can cause a variety of serious health concerns. Prolonged use will only raise the chances of a health complication occurring. The potency of crack cocaine also triggers strong withdrawal symptoms in a user, tempting them to relapse just to stop or alleviate the pain and discomfort of withdrawal. It is so important that you attempt to overcome your crack addiction with professional support that can guide you from start to finish, minimizing any chance of relapse.
Common symptoms of crack addiction and withdrawal include:
- Anxiety and depression
- Exhaustion or muscular fatigue
- Night terrors and insomnia
- Full-body tremors
- Uncontrolled moods and emotions
- Irregular heartbeat or breathing
It is also important to realize crack cocaine is commonly comprised of a number of unidentified substances and narcotics. You cannot be positive what is in a single dosage of crack. As such, the immediate consequences and continual symptoms could be much different and all the more dangerous than the aforementioned list.
