Are you looking for a drug test for cocaine? This commonly abused drug can be detected in any drug test that includes it in the panel of drugs being screened. If you’re looking for a cocaine urine test, Health Street offers various panel urine drug testing as well as hair drug testing options. Urine drug testing and hair tests can detect other drugs as well, depending upon the test you order. For example, a 5 panel urine drug screen finds cocaine in addition to marijuana, basic opiates, amphetamines, and PCP. These tests are available for both individuals and employers.

About Cocaine

What is Cocaine?

Cocaine has been called the Cadillac of recreational street drugs. People who use this stimulant drug are at a high risk of becoming addicted. A Coca-Cola ingredient in the early 1900s, cocaine has been glamorized in hit movies like Scarface, The Wolf on Wall Street, and Goodfellas. Due to this—and its high price—cocaine became a trendy drug of choice. It can be snorted, injected, and smoked (often as crack). The high it creates is known to be euphoric, but it doesn’t last long, and long-term effects can be fatal.

Speedball (cocaine and heroin together)

Side Effects of Cocaine

Cocaine’s stimulant properties can make the user feel strong and powerful, with an elevated mood, excited speech, and heightened energy. But a cocaine high comes with serious repercussions, and those who are addicted can pay a high price for that brief high. Along with addiction, long-term health consequences may include unexpected cardiac arrest and heart complications, cognitive dysfunction, seizures, and even death.

Other negative side effects can include dilated pupils, irritability, anxiety, and paranoia.

Combining cocaine with alcohol or heroin, which is common, can significantly increase a person’s overdose risk. Even if they recover, they may experience long-term health effects, such as reduced cognitive function, insomnia, depression and disturbing dreams.

Intended Use and Effects

Although cocaine has limited medical use as a topical local anesthetic, it is considered a Schedule II drug, due to the high abuse and addiction risk.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Crack the Same as Cocaine?

Crack is cocaine that is processed into its crystallized form for smoking. It produces a similar high but is faster with a stronger punch and much shorter duration. Because of this, those who are addicted must smoke more often to sustain the high.

How Long Does Cocaine Stay In Your Blood?
According to American Addiction Centers, cocaine can stay in your blood for several days. If you or someone you know needs or wants to be tested for this drug, Health Street offers testing for cocaine in urine or hair.

How Long Does Cocaine Stay in Your System?

The detection window for cocaine in the urine or hair depends on several factors, such as:

Frequency of use
Amount of cocaine used
User’s metabolism
User’s age
Does Cocaine Show Up On a Drug Test?

Yes, but the type of drug test will dictate if it does or doesn’t show up. Cocaine drug urine testing is fast, effective, and less expensive, but only detects cocaine use within the past week. Our hair drug test identifies usage in the past 90 days.

Cocaine Detection Time

Urine drug tests are the most common, which have a detection period of up to one week. The detection time for cocaine can be as short as two to four days, although this can vary. Does a hair test detect cocaine? Yes, and a hair test for coke has a much longer look-back period — up to 90 days. That may be more suitable in certain situations, such as to detect frequent usage in the past few months.

Why Get a Cocaine Drug Test?

Cocaine drug testing can improve safety at home or in a work environment. Many businesses may have employment drug testing programs in place and may test as part of their employee screening process to protect the safety of workers and customers. They may also be subject to local and federal regulations, such as transportation companies under DOT regulations. A positive result may open the door to recovery for a person who risks addiction or death.
