Therefore, any use of cocaine is considered abuse and can lead to addiction.

Call 1-800-552-0697 and we’ll connect you with a rehab center that can provide you with the best possible care.
Who’s At Risk of Cocaine Addiction?
Any use of cocaine places you at risk of becoming an addict. While most don’t report instantaneous addiction after a single use of cocaine, it is possible that chemical changes occur within the brain with a single dose of cocaine leading to a heightened desire to use again and again and this repeat use can quickly lead to addiction.
Although addiction is not prejudice, certain factors can increase your risk including:
- Having a past history of addiction to drugs or alcohol or a family history of substance abuse.
- Men are generally more prone to cocaine addiction than women.
- Socioeconomic status (having low education or poor employment) can increase your risk of becoming an addict.
- Mental illness increases your risk of drug or alcohol addiction by as much 80%. Studies show that more than half of all addicts also suffer from mental illness.
- Trauma, loss or other psychological or emotional upset can increase your risk of becoming addicted.
- Repeat use over a prolonged period of time increases your risk of addiction.
Whether any of the above factors pertain to you or not, using cocaine places you at a great risk for addiction. This drug is classified as a Schedule 1 which means it is likely to cause tolerance and dependence in those who abuse it and rates of abuse are high.

Signs and Symptoms of Cocaine Addiction
Addiction to cocaine can begin rapidly with little notice. If you’re using recreationally, you may notice that the small amounts of cocaine that you once used to get high quickly turn into larger and larger amounts—you’re constantly seeking a new high but struggling to cope with symptoms of withdrawal in between.
Tolerance develops quickly. Many users will snort, inject or smoke cocaine over and over again in a night trying to reach the high that was developed during the first use. Higher doses of the drug are used over time placing you at grave risk for overdose and other complications.
The most common signs of cocaine addiction include:
- Using cocaine in dangerous situations.
- Using cocaine in situations in which you should be sober.
- Using cocaine instead of spending time with friends, family members or loved ones.
- Using cocaine when you know it has caused serious health complications for you.
- Promising friends, family or loved ones that you will quit and breaking that promise.
- Using cocaine more frequently or in higher doses than you intended.
- Allowing cocaine use to interfere with your responsibilities at work, home or school.
In addition to the above signs, you may experience symptoms of withdrawal when you try to quit using cocaine.
These symptoms can include:
- Mood swings
- Behavioral outbursts
- Violent outbursts
If you recognize significant changes in sleep patterns of a loved one, specifically noticing that someone you care about is staying up all night and sleeping all day, this is one of the first recognizable signs that drugs maybe involved. This does NOT mean that all people who stay up at night are abusing drugs, but often times stimulant users will shift their sleep patterns so they can stay up late when others are not awake this way when they are high the paranoia doesn’t reflect to those around them.
If you’re addicted to cocaine, call 1-800-552-0697 and we’ll connect you with an inpatient rehab center that can provide treatment that’s ideal for your unique situation. No matter how much you’ve struggled or how bad the addiction is, help is available.
Do I Really NEED Inpatient Treatment?
