Answer

The event that prompted the ED visit may provide an opportunity to strongly caution the patient about future use of cocaine and to encourage the patient to seek treatment for drug abuse.

For patient education resources, see the First Aid and Injuries Center and the Mental Health Center. Also, see the patient education articles Cocaine Abuse, Drug Dependence & Abuse, Substance Abuse, Club Drugs, and Poisoning.
