Crack Cocaine Addiction


Crack cocaine is commonly just called “crack.” It is a free base form of cocaine that can be smoked, and provides a short but intense “high” feeling. It is the most addictive form of cocaine, largely because when smoked rather than snorted, the addictive quality reaches the brain more quickly. The overdose rate is very high, particularly for first-time users.
