Teenagers & Young Adults Admit Using Cocaine
More and more young people admit that they have experimented with cocaine. New data from the Home Office shows one in five 16-24 year olds took illegal drugs in 2017/18.
Cannabis still remains the most used drug with some 16.7% saying they had used it over the same period.
Worryingly half of the teenagers aged 16-19 said they would find it very easy to get illegal drugs within 24 hours.
Birmingham Cocaine Help Centre
At the Birmingham Cocaine Help Centre we seldom see clients younger than mid twenties for a cocaine addiction as before that, people don’t even realise that they are gradually getting dependant on illegal drugs.
Sometimes its a psychological dependance that develops over time and has all the same feelings of an actual addiction as the brain has wired itself to link going out the weekends = drug use = having a good time.
This is a hard link to break and when people try to stop taking cocaine on the weekends, then they realise they can’t and they have a dependance on it.
It can be a worrying time, realising that you are no longer in control of the cocaine, it is controlling you.
Some clients tell us, they don’t even enjoy it anymore but they do get exited about getting it. Then its “Oh no, I better take it now” and they continue using cocaine.
A Vicious Cycle of Using Cocaine
