NEW YORK, -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The effects of cocaine have often been underestimated when, in fact, it is one of the most addictive substances abused and one of the most destructive to a variety of different physiological systems.

One of the draws of cocaine is the nearly instantaneous high it produces. It's fast acting, entering the bloodstream quickly and traveling to the brain. One of the marked effects on the body is the effect cocaine has on the heart. It increases heart rate and blood pressure as it constricts blood flow to the heart. In an individual who has progressive heart disease which has resulted in significant narrowing of the arteries, cocaine use can produce immediate, fatal results.

The effects of cocaine use are devastating, begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center . At some point its use will catch up with an individual, either through immediate effects or via prolonged exposure. Not only does it physically wear on the individual, but the emotional and psychological impact is also profound. The sooner that help is sought for treatment, the less impact it can have on an individual's life.

If your family dynamic has been impacted by the use of cocaine in a loved one's life, the effects don't have to be continued and longstanding. With proper, holistic drug rehab and addiction treatment, individuals can reclaim their self-dignity and begin living their lives sober once again.
