Cocaine is a very addictive stimulant derived from the leaves of the coca plant. 1 The two most common forms of the drug are powder cocaine, which is snorted through the nose or dissolved and injected into the bloodstream, and crack cocaine, a processed form of crystalline cocaine that is smoked in a pipe for a more intense high. 2
Cocaine alters how the brain feels pleasure and provides the user with feelings of euphoria, increased energy, and mental alertness. 3 Regular use alters neural pathways in the brain, making it difficult for you to feel pleasure without cocaine. 4 This usually results in increased cocaine consumption, which can quickly lead to physical or mental dependence and addiction. Cocaine abuse also produces adverse health effects that include psychotic-like symptoms and paranoia, which can become permanent. 5 Cocaine also increases the risk for serious health complications including heart attacks, strokes, and seizures, all of which can be fatal. 6 The number of deaths in the United States involving cocaine has been rapidly increasing, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reporting nearly 15,000 cocaine overdose deaths in 2018. 7
Like elsewhere throughout the country, cocaine abuse is a major health issue in the state of Indiana. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, around 1 in 47 Indiana residents have used cocaine in the past year. 8 Cocaine is most popular among young adults, with 1 in 15 Indiana residents aged 18 to 25 reporting past-year cocaine use. Nearly 1 in 62 college students in Indiana have used cocaine in the past month, 9 and 1 in 25 Indiana high school students (grades 9-12) have used cocaine at least one time during their life. 10
Cocaine poses a significant threat to Indiana residents and is one of the most frequently used stimulant drugs among Indiana’s addiction treatment center population. According to the Treatment Episode Data Set maintained by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, cocaine was reported as the primary substance of use in 1 out of every 24 admissions to Indiana treatment and rehab centers in 2019. 11

Behavioral therapy focuses on your mental wellness and help address the underlying cause of your cocaine addiction by identifying the triggers and situations that increase the desire to use cocaine. 13 Your dedicated masters level clinician will also work with you on how to prevent the risk of future relapse by teaching ways to effectively cope with problems and behaviors associated with cocaine abuse.
