Do you feel like you can’t stop using LSD? Has taking PCP taken over your life? Does it feel like you don’t really think about much else other than using peyote, mescaline, or something similar? Too many feel that using hallucinogens like the ones mentioned above is harmless, as if it’s just about feeling connected, euphoric, and so forth. Unfortunately, they can have real, lasting negative side effects. Beyond becoming dependent upon them, they could do any amount of damage to your body as well as your life. Here at Conquer Recovery Centers, we can help you to overcome your addiction to hallucinogens.
Hallucinogens, obviously, aren’t the same as opioids. You may not develop that same level of physical dependency. However, hallucinogen use can lead to an increased tolerance, which leads, of course, to an increased level of consumption as well. The main problem with hallucinogens can be a kind of psychological dependence. That’s what can do lasting damage to you.
Many people who have used hallucinogens for a long period of time experience flashbacks or even develop psychosis. To be clear, in this context, “psychosis” means something like feeling afraid, confused, and even paranoid at times when you aren’t using the drugs. As you might imagine, this can have any number of consequences for your safety, your family, your job, your friends, and so much more.
There are other negative physical side effects to hallucinogen use as well. For example, many folks who use hallucinogens also experience an increase in blood pressure, an inability to sleep, dramatic mood swings, loss of memory, a loss of coordination, nausea, and in some cases, even seizures. If you or someone you love has been abusing hallucinogens, we can help.
