Hallucinogen & LSD Addiction Treatment
What is Addiction?
In general, addiction is a chronic brain disease that causes an uncontrollable, psychological, or physical need to use a chemical substance on an on-going basis. Addiction is not a sign of weakness or a lack of discipline. It is the result of physical and chemical changes within the brain that disrupt the body’s natural balance, particularly the production of neurotransmitters. Hallucinogen addiction, although less common than other types of substance abuse disorders, can have a significant impact on one’s well-being.
Can You Get Addicted to LSD?
Many people mistakenly believe that LSD addiction is impossible. This is because even habitual LSD use is not typically associated with the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms that come along with alcohol or opiate addiction. Without painful withdrawal symptoms to manage, a true physical dependence on LSD never really develops.
However, physical dependence isn’t the only hallmark of addiction. When it comes to LSD or other hallucinogens, some users may come to be emotionally and psychologically dependent on the substance. Treatment for hallucinogen addiction may be necessary when people prioritize drug use above their own physical and mental well-being.
Symptoms of Hallucinogen Addiction
Although it’s sometimes hard to determine if a person is addicted to LSD or other hallucinogens, there are warning signs to look for. If you suspect someone you love is struggling with hallucinogen addiction, or if you think you could be addicted to hallucinogens yourself, these warning signs may indicate the need for professional drug rehab:
Physical Effects of LSD Abuse
- Increase in heart rate and blood pressure
- Heavy sweating
- Nausea and vomiting
- Dilated pupils
Psychological Effects of LSD Abuse
- Extreme anxiety
- Time distortion
- Overly emotional
