WSVN visited Corcoran-Walsh Cove Center addiction treatment center to interview to clients that were recovering from flakka addiction. Due to the drug’s newness, hospitals are not aware how to treat the highly addictive and extremely dangerous drug. Some flakka abusers claim to have been up for three weeks without sleep. The Cove Center has had success treating flakka users and is becoming the go to place for people who are willing to become sober from the synthetic drug.

It is a dehumanizing drug and it is a dehumanizing act to trick people into taking something that ultimately will cost them their sanity Karen Corcoran-Walsh

In many cases, drug dealers lie to drug users about what they are selling in order to get them addicted and become return customers. Corcoran-Walsh was outraged by this conduct.  “It is despicable. It is a dehumanizing drug and it is a dehumanizing act to trick people into taking something that ultimately will cost them their sanity, their health, or their life,” said Corcoran-Walsh, who has been at the forefront of battling drug epidemics in the past including the pill mill controversy.
