Cocaine is a stimulant drug that exists primarily as a dry, white, and fine powder. Crack cocaine is a crystalline version that’s smoked. Coke comes from the leaves of the coca tree in South and Central America and is 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 since the time of the Incas. Since then, it’s become a highly purified and distilled version of what it once was. In the US, the DEA has cocaine listed as a Schedule II drug. Cocaine is a very lucrative good traded throughout the Americas. It’s since gone on to become one of the drugs of choice at parties and events.
Surprisingly, cocaine is an easy substance for someone to develop a dependence on. Cocaine is popular to binge during a single session, where the user must continually inhale or ingest coke to maintain a high. Cocaine produces dopamine, causing pleasure. Users will typically experience effects that range from euphoria to hyperactivity to paranoia. Crack, a street drug version of cocaine that induces very intense highs compared to powder cocaine, is known as such due to the distinctive crackling sound it makes in the pipe as it’s heated up. The effects of crack can be even more severe, and an overdose is much easier.
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.
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.
