The Drug Experience: Cocaine (Part 3)

In this Briefing we conclude our examination of the seminal study by Dan Waldorf and colleagues on heavy cocaine use, with a focus on stopping use of cocaine.

“It is commonly stated that drugs come to dominate identities and lives. This was true in the most problematic cases in the Waldorf study. However, for the large majority of the sample, identities and lives usually dominated drug use. This is a critical fact that must be remembered when we try to help people overcome problems caused by drugs and alcohol.”
