Detox and Withdrawal from Hallucinogens
Currently, there is no known physical addictiveness with hallucinogens which makes finding help for you or a loved one difficult. However, Recovery Ways has multiple therapists and psychiatrists that can help the user identify why they were using the drug, use behavioral therapies to resist using the drugs again and administer any medications that could help with resulting anxiety or depression.
The psychological dependency on these drugs can be due to the sensations the drugs provide such as an increased feeling of perception or connectedness. Our medical and clinical teams can help the user learn different healthier ways to feel these and ways to prevent them from using the drugs again. Maintaining a healthy and sober life is possible with the use of our various treatment options and support.
Hallucinogens affect the serotonin and glutamate production process in the brain that is essential for several major bodily processes. When an addict ceases use of the hallucinogen the chemical imbalances begin withdrawal symptoms such as:
- Increased heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing
- Muscle stiffening
- Body temperature fluctuations
