If you are addicted to LSD, you need to find help from a rehab treatment center immediately. Using LSD is a dangerous thing. It destroys your body and mind and the longer you delay treatment, the harder it will be to quit.
What is LSD?
LSD is an illegal drug that is sold on the streets and is commonly referred to as acid. It is sold on the streets in tablets, capsules, and occasionally a liquid form. It is also sometimes put on paper the size of stamps, each square representing one dose. LSD is a hallucinogenic drug that distorts reality and can produce severe terrifying thoughts and feelings, fear of losing control, fear of insanity and death. The user may lose sense of time and feel as if they have no control over their emotions. Other physical effects of LSD are as follows:
- Dilated pupils
- Changes in body temperature
- Profuse sweating
- Elevated blood sugar
- Elevated heart rate
- Dry mouth
- Loss of appetite
- Impaired perception
- Impaired judgment
- Emotional instability
LSD trips can last up to 12 hours. LSD is a very dangerous drug and some fatal accidents and injuries can occur during use. Although LSD is not physically addictive, it is psychologically addicting. Users enjoy the escape from reality it provides and can become obsessed with taking a trip again and again to achieve the same effect.
The problem is, the more LSD you take, the more you build up a tolerance to the drug. To achieve the same effect you have to take an increasingly larger dosage which becomes increasingly dangerous. LSD addiction also makes users more susceptible to developing conditions such as schizophrenia or severe depression.
What Type of Help is Available for LSD Addiction?
It is important that you don’t try to overcome LSD addiction on your own. Most people attempt to do it themselves, but are rarely successful. There are inpatient and outpatient facilities available to treat LSD users. Treatment for LSD is different than other types of drug addiction because it is strictly a psychological addiction. Treatment will not need to begin with detox but will begin with examining the mental, emotional, and social aspects of LSD addiction. The following are aspects of treating LSD addiction:
- Behavior modification
- Psychological Treatment
- Group Therapy
