Am I At Risk for Cocaine Psychosis? What Is Cocaine Psychosis?
Where can I learn what cocaine psychosis is? Can I get it from just one hit of cocaine? What happens during cocaine psychosis? Am I at risk for cocaine psychosis?
We get many questions about cocaine psychosis at Archstone Recovery Center, and we’re here to help answer them. During the use of cocaine, there is a high rate of users experiencing psychosis, including such symptoms as: paranoia, hallucinations, delusions, and the belief that someone is watching the user do cocaine. Over half of all cocaine users report experiencing some form of cocaine psychosis over their history of using the drug. Studies show that repeated intermittent use is associated with higher rates of psychosis and more severe symptoms when they do occur.
One particularly strong hallucination, experienced by many cocaine users, is the so-called “cocaine bugs.” This is a delusion that there are insects crawling around on, or under, the user’s skin. Users experiencing the cocaine bugs, or “formication,” are at-risk for skin damage from scratching, itching, or cutting of the body. Cocaine bugs are a very common hallucination for frequent cocaine users.
