Crack cocaine treatment Alberta
The chemical cocaine hydrochloride is known as crack. Some crack cocaine users chemically process cocaine in order to remove the hydrochloride. This process is called "freebase" and makes the drug more potent. "Crack" is in a solid form of freebased cocaine. It is called "crack" because it snaps and cracks when heated and smoked.
Habitual usage may lead to cocaine psychosis, causing paranoia, hallucinations, and a condition known as formication, in which insects or snakes are perceived to be crawling under the skin. The paranoia and depression can instigate violent and suicidal behavior. The side effects of adulterants increase cocaine's risks. Crack Cocaine is often cut with one or more of any number of other substances, such as the cheaper drugs procaine, lidocaine, and benzocaine, and substances that pose no serious risks, such as sugars (mannitol and sucrose), or starches. However, when quinine or amphetamines are added, the potential for serious side effects increases dramatically.
Alberta's drug addiction situation is as follow:
Edmonton and his surroundings has a huge problem with Methamphetamine.
Calgary's drug of choice is crack cocaine.
Methamphetamine treatment Alberta
Meth is a stimulant related to amphetamine but with more effects on the central nervous system. Street names for the drug are "speed," "meth," "crystal," and "crank." Methamphetamine is used in pill shape, or in powdered form by snorting or injecting. Crystallized methamphetamine known as "ice," "crystal," or "glass," is a smokable and more powerful form of the drug.
Severe amphetamine use induced depression and/or psychosis. Meth causes extensive damage to the body, and can cause death or permanent physical damage. Lately there was an increase in psychosis with meth users.
Meth can be produced virtually anywhere. Motel rooms, trailer parks, and suburban homes can all be turned into clandestine "meth" labs capable of producing substantial quantities of the drug.
