All forms of cocaine are addictive, but when crack cocaine is used the euphoria is instant and it immediately affects the brain. Crack cocaine addict’s romance after the drug, and are continually chasing their next high. A crack cocaine intervention needs to be well-planned because the time and place when intervention happens can change instantly. Crack cocaine creates an unpredictable level paranoia when the person is using the drug. A crack addict can be missing on a bender for days, weeks, or even longer. However, what is different from crack cocaine than other drugs, is the downtime between these crack-benders. This is where the organization and planning are done while working with Newman Interventions. It is at the point when a crack addict is just starting to come off the drug and is feeling the guilt, shame, and remorse. Typically, as this time they often show up at a family member’s home or a friend’s house and come back to where they were living.
At this moment is when a crack cocaine addict can be convinced to go to drug treatment. This is only successful with a professional interventionist, because of the level of manipulation and enabling. The family must follow through with their consequences if the addict refuses help, and most crack cocaine users will not agree to get treatment unless no other options are left.
