Teen Cocaine Addiction

Understand Teen Cocain Addiction With Saint Jude Retreats

Cocaine Addiction Information

Teen Cocaine AddictionTeen Cocaine addiction affects the lives of millions of people across the U.S. each year. For teens, Cocaine is an escape from their everyday existence, but their escape comes at a high price. Also known as coke, blow and snow, most teens begin using Cocaine by snorting the drug. However, constant use of the drug leads many teens to also inject and smoke it as well and the effects of the drug have the potential to impact teen's long term developmental future.

Is There A Physical Dependence?

Cocaine does not present any physical characteristics for dependency because it is a water soluble drug and once it is out of the individual's system it is out of the body. Therefore, there is no need for detox from Cocaine; however, cocaine use can be habit forming. As a result, there may be a need for the individual to enter into a teen drug program to help them with their reasons for using Cocaine.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that approximately a million teens have used Cocaine in the last year. A large number of teens experiment with the drug without moving into full cocaine addiction; however for the teens that do, there are warning symptoms for teen Cocaine addiction.

Signs of Cocaine Use

Cocaine overdose is not uncommon. Signs that a teen may be using Cocaine are; flu-like symptoms such as a runny or bloody nose, eyes that are bloodshot, loss of appetite and weight loss, extreme changes in energy level such as going from having an increased amount of energy to having no energy. Teens may lose interest in their old friends and begin to hang out with individuals that also use Cocaine. There may be change in their grades, decline in personal hygiene and change in their extracurricular activities.

If you suspect that your teen has a Cocaine addiction, you should not ignore it. There are many different treatment and assistant programs that can help your teen overcome their Cocaine addiction and take back control over their life. Teens undergo significant and important developmental changes from 12 to 20 years old and using Cocaine and not getting help for their drug use may prevent these developmental changes from occurring.

While there are traditional programs such as 12 Steps, there are also non traditional programs such as holistic and educational programs. St. Jude Retreats offers a six week, non-treatment, cognitive behavioral education program that teaches teens to reevaluate their choices and decisions and to make choices that are more helpful. Teens also learn to develop behaviors and habits that are positive. St Jude's can help teens develop the skills that they will need to be successful in their life of sobriety without Cocaine use.
