A recent study by scientists at the Brookhaven National Laboratory has discovered a link between using cocaine and the degradation of the risk/reward areas of the brain.  Cocaine is a very powerful stimulant on the “CNS”, or Central Nervous System.  The CNS is responsible for all movement in the body, as well as the brain itself.  The study showed hard evidence that those who habitually use cocaine are less likely to employ standard logic when making decisions.  This can lead to a whole host of negative consequences in a person’s life.  For more information on this article, go to this link: sciencedaily.com.

Cocaine is just one of many dangerous and illegal drugs out there.  Cocaine was originally used as an anesthetic, but was soon discovered to be too addictive for responsible medical use.  The consequences of cocaine use are far-reaching, and go well beyond the addict.  Cocaine is a large cause of much of the gang and cartel violence in South America and Mexico.  Many lives are lost, and there are many dangers associated with any drug or product sold on the black market.  Countless families have strains of personal and financial natures put on them, and many individuals are forced to get drug rehabilitation as a result.

Rehabilitation comes in different varieties, and the success rates are pretty low in most of them.  The biggest reason for this is a lack of conviction on the part of the alcoholic or the addict.  All treatment types that I know of agree that is a person does not truly want help with his/her addiction, treatment will not work. However, in most cases an addict will not go to treatment without the help and support of family and loved ones to get them to agree to getting help in the first place.

Cocaine addiction can be a severe problem that cannot be left untreated. For information on successful cocaine rehab contact us today.
