Drug and Alcohol Treatment for Crack Portland ME

The best and worst part about crack for addicts is that its effects are quick but it’s equally short-lived. This translates into buying many hits throughout the night at a cheap cost per hit, but ends in complete and total addiction because once under the effects of crack - a boiled down, based out form of cocaine – abusers will spend everything they have to continue to their high.
