According to the CIA, the United States is the largest consumer of cocaine in the world. In 2004-2005 Colorado had one of the highest rates of cocaine use (2.52% – 3.39%) in the country, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. In the same category were Alaska, Arizona, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and West Virginia. The age group most likely to use cocaine or crack cocaine are young people aged 18 – 25.
Like other drugs, cocaine or crack cocaine has a reward effect for the user followed by withdrawal. Regular use can therefore lead to addiction to the drug. Addiction is a disease and should be treated as such. Cocaine users are at risk of heart attacks or strokes, both of which can be fatal. If you use cocaine and experience feeling of dependence (the need to keep taking the drug) and feelings of withdrawals, you may be addicted. Seeking help for addictions is the first step to managing and treating the problem. Drug addictions have consequences for health as well as social relationships. It can be hard for drug addicts to manage their addictions without professional help for the disease.
