Signs to Identify Cocaine Addiction

Sep 23, 2022 | Rehab

Cocaine is used as a stimulant drug and belongs to the schedule II category of the most addictive drugs. Though being one of the most addictive drugs, cocaine was legally used as a medicinal drug during surgeries in the past. Now that the experts have identified its harmful effects on the user’s mind and body, it has been banned across the country. 

However, people still obtain it illegally and abuse it. This has led to a rise in the number of cases of cocaine addiction and death due to overdose. Once addicted to cocaine, it is important to get rid of it as soon as possible to avoid harmful effects on your body. Thus, it is important to know the signs of addiction and treatment methods. 

Signs and Ways to Treat Cocaine Addiction 

Cocaine is a highly addictive drug, however, the initial signs of addiction are mild and can go unnoticed. But if the use is extended, the brain and body can show signs of addiction like: 

  • Increased happiness
  • Active socialization 
  • A sudden rise in energy levels 
  • Dilated pupils
