Tranxene Addiction Treatment & Rehab
The risk of becoming addicted to Tranxene is higher in people who misuse the drug. Taking large doses, or taking it more often than prescribed are examples of Tranxene misuse. Taking Tranxene for longer than instructed or without a prescription is also considered misuse, as is combining it with other substances. All of these scenarios put a person at greater risk of becoming addicted to this medication. Other Tranxene side effects can include confusion, drowsiness, cognitive impairment, and headache.
Due to its consistency, dealers tend to sell cocaine in small, tightly wound plastic baggies or twisted-up plastic wrap. Cocaine is one of the most expensive drugs on the market, so cocaine addiction is also very expensive. Due to its high cost, the average person who uses it likely holds only small amounts at a time. When sold on the street, cocaine tends to come in grams or ounces. Larger stocks of the drug are sold in heavyweight plastic bags or dense, rectangular units of plastic wrap. These are referred to as “bricks.” You may find cocaine in a solid, chalk-like form as well, which can be easily broken down into the eventual powder. The powder is usually then formed into thin lines or “bumps” to be snorted up the nose.
Because of the high demand for the drug and its nondescript appearance, dealers tend to mix it with similar light powders to take advantage of buyers. These powders may include:
- Baking soda
- Laundry detergents
- Boric acid
- Local anesthetics
- Talcum powder
Street cocaine may contain certain additives that actually speed up or intensify the high. But in general, dealers add cheap substances to extend their supply and maximize their profit. Impure cocaine can appear off-white, pinkish or brownish depending on the other contained ingredients. A 2015 London study revealed that a typical ounce of cocaine sold on the street was only 22–25 percent pure. This percentage can drop even lower as it moves down the line through different transactions. Many people who are paying $100 for a gram of “cocaine” may only be receiving 1–3 percent actual of pure cocaine, if not less.
Crack cocaine (freebase cocaine), the base form of the drug, takes on a more crystalline or rock-like consistency. It varies in color from white to yellow to a pale rose. This substance has an ever-growing reputation as a hyper-potent and addictive drug that is dangerously affordable and available. Someone who gets hooked may find themselves turning to crack as an inexpensive way to feed their cocaine addiction, which can greatly exacerbate their health risks and the severity of their dependence.
Tranxene addiction treatment and rehab can be completed in an inpatient or outpatient setting. For people with mild or shorter-term devotion to recurrence of use, outpatient treatment may be enough. For someone who is a long-term, heavy user of Tranxene, or who has co-occurring mental health conditions or addictions, inpatient treatment is usually the best option. Inpatient rehab allows for a more intensive, focused and in-depth experience, away from the stresses and triggers of daily life. Following completion of a treatment program, a patient will often be provided with an aftercare plan to help them maintain their health as they return to daily life.
