Drug Statistics and Facts
While most meth labs are generally hidden in apartments and houses, meth labs can be set up at campgrounds, rest areas, rental homes, motel rooms, hotels, abandoned cars, garages, storage sheds, barns, vacant buildings, or even a suitcase.
Youths aged 12 to 17 were asked a number of questions related to the extent of support, oversight, and control that they perceived their parents exercised over them in the year prior to the survey. In 2008, among youths aged 12 to 17 enrolled in school in the past year, 79.3 percent reported that in the past year their parents always or sometimes checked on whether or not they had completed their homework, and 70.2 percent reported that their parents limited the amount of time that they spent out with friends on school nights. Both of these rates reported in 2008 were similar to those reported in 2007 and remained statistically unchanged from the rates reported in 2002. However, in 2008, 80.0 percent reported that their parents always or sometimes provided help with their homework, which was similar to the rate in 2007 (80.9 percent) but was lower than the rate in 2002 (81.4 percent).
Because of possible additive or interactive drug effects, data from SAMHSA's 2006 and 2007 National Surveys on Drug Use and Health were pooled to examine the likelihood of multiple concurrent substance use. The measure used to define concurrent substance use for this report was illicit drug use during or within 2 hours of last alcohol use. About 6% (7.1 million) of persons age 12 or older who drank alcohol in the past month also reported using an illicit drug during or within 2 hours of their last alcohol drink. Among past month alcohol drinkers, American Indian or Alaska Natives (11.7%) and Blacks (9.9%) were the most likely racial groups and Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islanders (4.2%) and Asians (2.1%) were the least likely racial groups to use an illicit drug concurrently with alcohol. Youth aged 12 to 17 and young adults aged 18 to 25 were more likely than older persons among the past month alcohol drinkers to drink alcohol concurrently with an illicit drug.
In 2009, adults aged 26 or older were less likely to be current drug users than youths aged 12 to 17 or young adults aged 18 to 25 (6.3 vs. 10.0 and 21.2 percent, respectively). However, there were more drug users aged 26 or older (12.2 million) than users aged 12 to 17 (2.5 million) and users aged 18 to 25 (7.1 million) combined.

Signs of Cocaine Addiction

There are numerous signs of cocaine addiction. Cocaine is a powerfully addictive central nervous system (CNS) stimulant. It has extremely potent euphoric effects, and individuals who take cocaine can develop an addiction to cocaine after using the drug for a very short period of time. Cocaine is a crystalline, granular, or powder substance, having a saline, slightly bitter taste that numbs the tongue and lips. It heightens alertness, inhibits appetite and the need for sleep, and provides intense feelings of pleasure. Some users find that the drug helps them to perform simple physical and intellectual tasks more quickly, while others can experience the opposite effect. It is prepared from the leaf of the Erythroxylon coca bush, which grows primarily in Peru and Bolivia.

The effects of cocaine are immediate, extremely pleasurable, and brief. Cocaine produces intense but short-lived euphoria and can make users feel more energetic. Like caffeine, cocaine produces wakefulness and reduces hunger. Psychological effects include feelings of well-being and a grandiose sense of power and ability mixed with anxiety and restlessness. As the drug wears off, these temporary sensations of mastery are replaced by an intense depression, and the drug abuser will then "crash", becoming lethargic and typically sleeping for several days.

When cocaine use is stopped or when a binge ends, depression (crash) follows almost immediately. This is accompanied by a strong craving for more cocaine, fatigue, anxiety, irritability, sleepiness, and sometimes agitation or paranoia.

 

Common physical signs of cocaine addiction include but are not limited to:

  • Red, bloodshot eyes
  • Runny nose or frequent sniffing
  • Weight loss
  • Increased susceptibility to illness
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Constricted blood vessels
  • Dilated pupils
  • Increased heart rate
  • Increased temperature
  • Nosebleeds
  • Altered motor activities (tremors, hyperactivity)
  • Perspiration or chills
  • Nausea or vomiting

 

Common emotional signs of cocaine addiction include but are not limited to:

  • Change in eating or sleeping patterns
  • Change in groups of friends

  • Frequently in need of money
  • Unusual energy followed by excessive sleeping
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Erratic behavior
  • Isolation
  • Strained relationships
  • Missed work
  • Increased time away from family
  • Stealing/Lying/Financial problems
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Paranoia
  • Auditory hallucinations
  • Talking rapidly
