Christian Addiction Recovery Groups for Troubled Boys and Girls: cocaine.
By Curtis Reed
Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant that troubled teens use which directly affects their brain. Cocaine is affecting many troubled boys and girls around the world. The pure chemical, cocaine hydrochloride, has been an abused substance that struggling teens have used for more than 100 years. Struggling boys and girls abuse cocaine by snorting it through the nose, smoking it, or injecting it straight to the blood stream. These troubled teens who inject cocaine, or injecting any drug, carries the added risk of infection with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. If troubled teens share a needle with another teen already infected with the virus, those struggling boys and girls are exposed to the HIV virus and risk acquiring and even dying from AIDS. Many struggling teens don’t know how to overcome the problems that they are faced with and many troubled teens need to be placed in the correct environment in order to restore themselves.

“Freebase” is a form of cocaine that struggling teens smoke which is extremely dangerous. It appears that compulsive cocaine use may develop even more rapidly if the substance is smoked rather than snorted. Cocaine reaches the brain within seconds, resulting in a sudden and intense high. However, the euphoria quickly disappears, and it leaves struggling teens with an enormous craving to freebase again and again. Troubled boys and girls usually increase the dose and the frequency to satisfy this craving, resulting in addiction and physical debilitation.
Crack is the street name given to one form of freebase cocaine that comes in the form of small lumps or shavings. The term "crack" refers to the crackling sound made when the mixture is smoked or heated. The drug can also be rubbed onto mucous tissues. Struggling teens smoking crack is very dangerous since it produces the same debilitating effects as freebasing cocaine. Crack has become a major problem for many troubled teens in America because it is inexpensive. Cocaine sells for between $5 and $10 for one or two doses and easily transportable. It sold in small vials, folding paper, or tinfoil. Cocaine is generally sold on the street as a fine, white, crystalline powder, known as "coke," "C," "snow," "flake," or "blow." Street dealers generally dilute it with such inert substances as cornstarch, talcum powder, and/or sugar, or with such active drugs as procaine (a chemically-related local anesthetic) or with such other stimulants as amphetamines. Some troubled teens combine cocaine powder or crack with heroin in a “speedball”
Cocaine's effects appear almost immediately after a single dose, and disappears within a few minutes or hours. Taken in small amounts (up to 100 mg), cocaine usually makes struggling teens feel euphoric, energetic, talkative, and mentally alert, especially to the sensations of sight, sound, and touch. It can also temporarily decrease the need for food and sleep. Some troubled teens find that the drug helps them to perform simple physical and intellectual tasks more quickly, while other troubled teens can experience the opposite effect.
Troubled boys and girls often report feelings of restlessness, irritability, and anxiety, and cocaine can trigger paranoia. Struggling teens also report being depressed when they are not using the drug and often resume use to alleviate further depression. In addition troubled teens who use cocaine frequently find that they need more and more cocaine more often to generate the same level of stimulation. Therefore, any use can lead to addiction.
Once a struggling boy or girl tries cocaine, they may have difficulty predicting or controlling the extent to which he or she will continue to use the drug. Troubled teens can use cocaine in a binge, during which the drug is taken repeatedly and at increasingly high doses. Cocaine leads struggling teens to a state of increasing irritability, restlessness, and paranoia. This may result in a full-blown paranoid psychosis, in which struggling teens lose touch with reality and experience auditory hallucinations.
