Cocaine is a potent, highly addictive, and dangerous stimulant drug that immediately hooks users after the first use. Long known as a recreational “party drug” synonymous with the decadence of the 1970s, cocaine use continues to be a major health issue in the United States. According to data provided by NIDA, an estimated 5.2 million people over 12 years of age in the United States have used cocaine in the past month. Sadly, nearly 20,000 people died of a drug overdose involving cocaine in 2020.

Cocaine is an extremely addictive drug made from the leaves of the coca plant. In powder form, it is snorted but can also be liquified and injected. Crack is a crystallized form of cocaine that is smoked. Crack is more potent and addictive than powder cocaine. Cocaine is a stimulant that impacts the central nervous system (CSN) by blocking norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin transporters, which causes a build-up of these neurotransmitters in the brain’s pleasure centers. This build-up produces feelings of euphoria that fuel the cycle of addiction, which is difficult to break without professional intervention.
Cocaine addiction impacts how a person processes information and manages interpersonal relationships. Extreme mood swings and irritability contribute to difficulties maintaining healthy relationships. Long-term use can affect daily functioning to the degree that individuals cannot handle their responsibilities, which contributes to the further breakdown of relationships. Other psychological effects can include:
Cocaine directly affects the neurochemistry in the brain’s reward center. Cocaine blocks dopamine from being reabsorbed in the brain.
As a result, huge quantities of dopamine linger in the brain, leading users to feel intense euphoria. When the effects of cocaine begin to diminish, the brain is too overworked and unable to produce dopamine on its own. This leads to users taking more cocaine, so more dopamine reinforces the good feelings.
Physically, cocaine creates dramatic spikes in energy levels, increases body temperature, and increases heart rate and pressure. While users say cocaine helps increase focus and clarity, the drug increases irritability, and people become more sensitive to touch, sound, and light. Additionally, cocaine decreases appetite and increases feelings of anxiety and paranoia. Over time, people who abuse cocaine can experience dangerous complications, including constricted blood vessels, dangerously high blood pressure, arrhythmia, malnourishment, seizures, and even hallucinations.
