Despite the backlash against cocaine and crack cocaine abuse over the past few decades, millions of Americans continue to abuse these drugs each year — 2.2 million in total, according to the 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. The same survey reports that 966,000 — about 44% — of all U.S. cocaine and crack users met the criteria for diagnosable addiction or cocaine use disorder. Although both of these drugs gained a reputation for abuse among certain communities, today’s cocaine and crack users are people of all ages, locations and socioeconomic backgrounds. Both cocaine and crack are widely produced and distributed across the country and are equally dangerous for high-ranking business people as they are for inner-city teens. No matter who or where you are, using cocaine or crack cocaine is harmful to your health and has the potential to become an addictive habit. If you are using cocaine or crack, or you suspect that a loved one might be, it might be time to seek professional rehabilitation.
