Cocaine is a stimulant, an incredibly addictive white powder that is snorted. Though cocaine abuse rose in the 80s and 90s, it's one of the oldest drugs around. The pure chemical, cocaine hydrochloride, has been an abused substance for more than 100 years, and coca leaves, the source of cocaine, have been ingested for thousands of years. 

Two chemicals make up cocaine, hydrochloride salt and the “freebase.” The hydrochloride salt, or powdered form of cocaine, dissolves in water and, when abused, can be taken intravenously (by vein) or intranasally (in the nose). Freebase refers to a compound that has not been neutralized by an acid to make the hydrochloride salt. The freebase form of cocaine is smokable.

Cocaine's nicknames are coke, snow, flake and blow.

Crack is a smoking version of cocaine. Crack cocaine is processed with ammonia or baking soda and water, heated and smoked.

The 2003 Monitoring the Future Survey, which annually surveys teen attitudes and recent drug use, reports that crack cocaine use decreased among 10th-graders in 30-day, annual, and lifetime use prevalence periods. This was the only statistically significant change affecting cocaine in any form. Past-year use of crack declined from 2.3 percent in 2002 to 1.6 percent in 2003. Last year, the rate increased from 1.8 percent to 2.3 percent, and this year’s decline brings it to approximately its 2001 level.

Crack cocaine and Cocaine addiction continue to be abused by all walks of life. Getting sober from crack and cocaine might seem like an impossible undertaking, but it isn’t. Addiction recovery can be successful by checking into a crack detox, cocaine residential treatment center or sober living home that caters to, understands and has a track record of treating and working successfully with crack addicts and cocaine addiction.

Heroin comes from the opiate poppy, a flower that grows in Mexico, Asia and South America. Heroin is a bad tasting white powder, though can also be dark brown and is a narcotic. Heroin goes by several names, smack, heron, Big H, black tar, caballo and 8 ball. Heroin is injected into a vein and because heroin users have a propensity to share needles, hepatitis B, C and HIV are easily transmitted. Heroin is one of the most addictive drugs on the market. Some say addiction happens after the first use. The withdrawals from heroin are unbearable and cause panic, sleeplessness, chills, sweats, seizures and convulsions.

Individuals of all ages use heroin--data reported in the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse indicate that an estimated 3,091,000 U.S. residents aged 12 and older have used heroin at least once in their lifetime. The survey also revealed that many teenagers and young adults have used heroin at least once--76,000 individual’s aged 12 to 17 and 474,000 individuals aged 18 to 25.

Heroin use among high school students is a particular problem. Nearly 2 percent of high school seniors in the United States used the drug at least once in their lifetime, and nearly half of those injected the drug, according to the University of Michigan's Monitoring the Future Survey.

Recovery from heroin addiction should be monitored at a heroin detox with skilled professionals adept at dealing with heroin addicts in withdrawal and seeking recovery. Once a heroin addict goes through detox, he or she should seek recovery at a residential treatment center or rehab and segue into a sober living home to continue ongoing treatment from the harrowing addiction heroin causes.
