Overcoming Crack Addiction

Withdrawal symptoms are more emotional than physical. The first step of overcoming a crack addiction is detox. After detox, some may go to a rehab center that deals with therapy to address the addiction and past emotional issues that may have put you at risk for addiction. Rehab can last 30 days or longer. From there, an addict is released and may choose to attend 12-step meetings to maintain a successful recovery.
