What is cocaine?

Cocaine is a white, fine powder that acts as a stimulant to users. Derived from the leaves of the coca tree in South and Central America, it’s a substance that’s been used for centuries among indigenous peoples and locals to treat various ailments and altitude-related illnesses in the Andes Mountains.

A DEA Schedule II substance, cocaine is a very lucrative good throughout the Americas. Figures such as Pablo Escobar achieved great fame as prolific traffickers of the substance, and it’s since gone on to become one of the drugs of choice at parties and events.

Cocaine is easy to become addicted to. Because of how the drug affects the brain, users must consistently binge more and more of the drug at once to achieve the same high throughout a single session. Cocaine produces dopamine, causing pleasure. Users will typically experience effects that range from euphoria to hyperactivity to paranoia.

Crack cocaine, a street drug that induces more intense highs than traditionally snorted cocaine, is known as such due to the distinctive crackling sound it makes in the pipe as it’s heated up. It’s much easier to use cocaine via smoking it for the ease by which your high is achieved, but the effects can be even more severe, and an overdose is much easier when smoking crack.

Cocaine use has many health risks. For long-time users, it can cause high blood pressure and permanently damage the cardiovascular system. Snorted cocaine can erode the nasal passages and induce cardiac events, like heart attacks. Crack can cause severe weight and hair loss in users.

Cocaine use in the US and Virginia

In the US, the overdose death rate for cocaine users was 4 and a half out of every 100,000 users. This number is significantly up from pre-2013 when it was less than half of that number. Cocaine and opioid co-overdoses are on the rise at an alarming rate.

In Virginia, 1.8% of all residents 12 years of age and older had used cocaine at least once in 2019. The largest group of coke users were the 18- to 25-year-old group, with 5.2% having used it at least once that same year. The message that cocaine is risky and dangerous has successfully saturated the population of Virginia, where 71 out of 100 understand that there are significant bodily and legal costs involved with regular use.

In Virginia, 7.01% of residents over the age of 12 have some form of a substance use disorder, and 6.64% need treatment for a SUD but don’t seek it out. This is where Landmark Recovery of Richmond comes in.
