Charlie Sheen advises people to stay away from crack cocaine “Unless you can manage it socially,” which he told a radio interviewer Monday.
This begs the question, How can anyone use crack cocaine socially?
Charlie Sheen, has been on forced hiatus from his television show, Two and a Half Men, since he was admitted to the hospital after a two-day party with the actress Kacey Jordan.
Charlie Sheen told The Dan Patrick Show on Monday morning, “I healed really quickly, but I also unravel really quickly, so get me right now guys,” Sheen said. “Get me right now.”
NIDA Drug Info Sheet on Cocaine says:
“Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant drug. The powdered hydrochloride salt form of cocaine can be snorted or dissolved in water and then injected. Crack is the street name given to the form of cocaine that has been processed to make a rock crystal, which, when heated, produces vapors that are smoked. The term “crack” refers to the crackling sound produced by the rock as it is heated.”
Social Crack Cocaine Use?

Many people get addicted to crack cocaine, and many believe they can use it socially without the consequences other people experience. However, the truth is most people who use crack cocaine get severely addicted and end up on a downward spiral that will unfortunately end in either them getting treated and clean, or hitting rock bottom. We hope Mr. Sheen gets the help he needs a to live a clean, healthy life without the need to use substances “to make things better.”
“It’s about what makes things better, whether that’s real or imagined,” Charlie Sheen states.
Charlie Sheen claims to be in an at home rehab. There are a few experts that will work from your home, and we hope he is getting the help he needs. However, the base of power is shifted when you are in someone’s home and it can be difficult to challenge someone when needed. It makes it difficult for effective therapy to take place. We will say, however, that if this is all he is willing to commit to, then it is better than nothing.
At Drug & Alcohol Rehab Asia we are not sure who is treating Mr. Sheen, but we hope he is getting top quality treatment. He is a wonderful actor and an asset to Hollywood; it would be a shame to loose him at an early age. Hopefully, he will understand that there is no manage it socially when it comes to crack cocaine.
