Cocaine and its derivatives are extremely addictive and can be extraordinarily dangerous, and cocaine addiction is linked to a wide variety of mental and physical health problems, so getting help as soon as possible is very important.

In addition to this, it is particularly important that professional help is sought out, as unfortunately very few people are able to beat cocaine addiction on their own, especially if the habit is bad or has gone on for some time, and this is usually the case owing to the extremely addictive nature of cocaine.

Not seeking professional help can at worse be fatal, or at best makes the recovery process a whole lot harder.

The particular dangers of cocaine abuse in London

London, known as the party capital of the UK, with its bustling nightlife and active music scene, means cocaine (and other drugs) are accessible 24 hours of the day and without too much hassle.

This combination of accessibility to the drug and an abundance of cocaine-friendly locations means Londoners (and other large city dwellers) are more susceptible to cocaine addiction. The usual route to addiction for an urban liver is recreational use that slowly spirals into a full-blown addiction.

Some cocaine seizures in London have been confirmed to have been cut with the highly addictive and dangerous substance fentanyl, which increases the risk of overdoses and other adverse effects.

Cocaine deaths in the UK have been steadily on the rise, with a record number of deaths in 2017 with 432 deaths, this is the equivalent of an astonishing 4000 percent rise since 1993 (when records began).

These figures do not make a distinction between crack cocaine and the standard powdered variety of cocaine. (Crack cocaine is a form of cocaine that is more pure and powerful, with shorter lasting effects. and comes in rock form and is usually smoked in a pipe).

Cheaper and stronger cocaine

Regarding the purity of cocaine in London, an increase to 54 percent purity has been noted by the National Crime Agency, which is the highest it has ever been.

The National Crime Agency also estimates that a staggering 875,00 individuals have used cocaine during 2016, which is a significant percent of the population.

This rise is thought to be the main factor in increased deaths, rather than an increase in the potency of cocaine, but this is still a factor.

Also, with more people using the drug, prices have decreased because of greater competition for the sellers of the drug. The decrease in the price of the drug is one of the main factors in cocaine becoming the most popular drug in the UK after cannabis.

Cocaine use and its impact on London’s hospitals

With the drastic increase in cocaine use, London’s hospitals have seen a notable increase in admissions for drug-related mental health problems. The main mental health problems that cocaine use influences are depression, anxiety, addiction, and psychosis.

Mental health hospital admissions have increased each year with 10,679 in 2013/14 to 13,155 in 2016/17, according to the NHS Digital service. As well as mental health problems, cocaine also influences physical health.

According to the ONS reports, 12,000 people went to the hospital for physical cocaine-related disorders in 2016/17, a sharp increase from 2007/08 with only 5,148 admissions.

London: the cocaine capital of Europe

In 2014 and 2015, London was named the cocaine capital of Europe. The population of London released the largest amount of cocaine into the wastewater of any other European country, and the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction found in 2016 that London had the most problematic cocaine use after Antwerp.

In London, cocaine has always historically been the drug of choice for financial traders, and the financial companies would often turn a blind eye to cocaine use because of its short-term performance-enhancing effects, but cocaine use is now much more widespread and is used by people of all socioeconomic standings.

How does cocaine addiction usually develop?

As with many drugs, cocaine alters the brain’s reward system, but because of cocaine’s incredibly addictive nature, this happens much quicker.

After addiction has developed, the brain will seek out cocaine instead of more healthy reward systems, regardless of the adverse consequences to the user’s mental and physical health, their family, their social life and relationships, and their job/career and financial security.

As an individual’s cocaine addiction develops, they will feel like they need more and more cocaine to feel pleasure or even just feel ‘normal’.

And when the user is without cocaine, their normal, healthy brain activity is reduced. The end result is often depression and overwhelming feelings of anxiety and hopelessness.

Cocaine rehabs in London

If you or a loved one are looking to stop taking cocaine and feel like you can’t, it might because you are suffering from cocaine addiction.

If this is the case, it is highly recommended that you seek professional help. Cocaine addiction only gets worse over time, so early intervention is vitally important if possible.

It is also important to remember that addiction is an illness and not a choice, very few people actively choose to become addicted to cocaine, it often occurs from recreational use that gets out of hand. Cocaine addiction is a chronic and progressive mental illness that can be life-threatening and therefore usually requires professional treatment.

There are of course cases of people beating cocaine addiction on their own, but this is rare and professional treatments make the process a whole lot easier, and some people are simply unable to treat themselves, it is not just a question of willpower.

There are many rehab facilities in London, and it is always advisable to seek out trusted advice before making a selection on which treatment centre is right for you. The rehab facility that is right for you will depend on many factors, such as mental health and social needs, and financial and general preferences.
