Treating Addiction to Hallucinogens

Hallucinogens are a wide class of drugs like DMT, LSD and mushrooms that provide otherworldly effects on those who use them. Although these chemicals may not be traditionally addictive in the ways that drugs like cocaine or heroin are, they can still have profound effects on the mind and body, and can become psychologically addictive with enough abuse. Even worse, those with latent mental disorders like schizophrenia may find them activated by abusing these kinds of drugs. Fortunately, the West Coast Rehab (West Coast Rehab) has a range of programs available to help you beat addiction or dependence on hallucinogens.

Putting Hallucinogens in the Past

Because hallucinogens are often designer drugs with other chemicals cut into them, many clients at West Coast Rehab will begin treatment by going through a medically supervised detox. During this period, clients flush out the poisonous chemicals in their body and also stabilize mentally so that treatment can begin properly. All clients staying at West Coast Rehab get their own private rooms and personal drug counselors to meet for individual therapy. Treatment at West Coast Rehab is based on discoveries from neuroscience as well as evidence-based treatment, with therapeutic methods including CBT, Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, relapse prevention, family therapy, and 12-step support. Because hallucinogens can damage healthy family relationships, family therapy is available at West Coast Rehab as well. Finally, there are always more staff than clients on site to make sure everyone gets enough individual attention.

A Life Without Hallucinogens

Although hallucinogens may not seem as physically serious as opiate type drugs, the fact is that abusing them can lead to the same places. Many who abuse hallucinogens may be seeking to escape from something in their lives they aren’t happy with, much like any other drug. At West Coast Rehab, our staff is here to help you face those issues in the clear light of day. We have treated many difficult cases, and we can assure you that a full recovery is possible. Call us today, and see if our proven treatment programs can help you live a life without hallucinogens.
