Essentially yes, anyone can become addicted to crack cocaine or any other drug given the right circumstances and motivating factors. Crack cocaine is a highly addictive drug and delivers an intense and fast euphoric high for the user that will become habit forming. There are many different reasons why someone would want to use drugs, but whatever the reason is, crack cocaine will become addicting. There are common misconceptions that only a certain class of people become addicted to drugs, and this could not be further from the truth. Drug addiction affects all classes of people at any time in their lives, from any background, regardless if they are from a well-off family or grew up poor.

When someone becomes addicted to drugs, it for a specific reason or simply because they were bored and needed something else in their lives. Crack cocaine provides a user with that escape, or what they believe is the escape they are looking for. Unfortunately, the drug will destroy their lives and cause nothing but pain and anguish. Crack cocaine addiction is also very difficult to treat because of how addictive the drug is. Most crack cocaine users will have gone through more than one type of treatment before they end up remaining clean and sober. The most effective type of rehabilitation for a crack-cocaine addiction is a residential program where all the counseling and therapy can be done in-house.
