Stop Smoking Crack and Start Living Life: Cocaine Rehab Programs at Archstone Recovery
With the tragic death of pop diva Whitney Houston, the topic of crack addiction has been in the news. Houston, who skyrocketed to stardom in the 1980s with hit after hit, had a strong, clear voice that handled the high notes with ease and grace—not to mention an unforgettable stage presence. Her beauty and confidence inspired millions. But even Whitney Houston at the top of her game wasn’t immune to the realities of addiction. Mired in an abusive relationship and worked to exhaustion by her record label, she turned to crack cocaine and other drugs to try to escape her pain and unhappiness. Tragically, her attempts at crack cocaine rehabilitation failed, and after a long and painful slide, she died in a hotel room bathtub.
Whitney Houston’s case goes to show that although many people and many images in the media associate crack addiction with urban poverty, the truth is much more complicated. In fact, people of all classes, races, and life circumstances can and do become addicted to crack. That image arose because crack came to prominence as a cheaper version of cocaine, a byproduct of its production that was used by people who couldn’t afford to pay high prices for powder cocaine. It swept urban neighborhoods in the crack “epidemic” of the eighties and early nineties, and state, local, and federal laws cracked down with harsher sentences for crack users compared to the often richer users of powder cocaine. However, as crack enters its third generation, the fact is that the stereotypes are untrue. Crack is everywhere, and it is highly addictive. It can be hard for wealthy or prominent people like Whitney Houston to admit that they have a problem. But whatever your circumstances, if you’re addicted to crack, you need help.
