LSD is a powerful hallucinogenic drug that changes how serotonin functions in the brain. While it is not physically addictive, this drug has powerful psychological effects that can cause lasting harm to users. Recovery from LSD addiction requires professional treatment, but there is no one specific treatment plan that will work for everyone. Individuals ready for recovery can choose from treatment options based on gender, age, presence of co-occurring mental health issues and more.
Finding the Right LSD Addiction Recovery Program
Choosing the right recovery program for yourself or your loved one is not an easy task. Admissions coordinators will help with this process by guiding you toward treatment options that best meet your unique needs. These needs may involve treatment for more than one addiction, Dual Diagnosis treatment that will simultaneously address issues such as depression or anxiety, or treatment geared toward your gender.
Benefits of Coed LSD Addiction Treatment
Coed addiction treatment allows patients to recover in a setting that is most like the outside world. Individuals who have had trouble interacting with members of the opposite sex due to traumatic past experiences or mental health issues can learn how to do so in a safe and therapeutic setting. LSD may be used to mask symptoms of social anxiety or cope with negative past memories, and finding treatment that can provide comprehensive and complete care for all related issues can lead to a more successful addiction recovery. Coed addiction care may provide a more real-world solution to addiction, as patients must learn to interact with the opposite gender to maintain sobriety once they leave treatment.
Benefits of Single-Gender Addiction Therapy
Single-gender addiction therapy sessions can allow participants to discuss issues specific to gender. Patients may feel safer or more comfortable bringing up some issues such as past trauma when only women or men are present. Women and men have different obstacles to treatment and challenges to sobriety, and single-gender therapy allows therapists and participants to focus on these issues and methods for overcoming them. Women often feel they cannot leave children to attend therapy and may use drugs partly in response to gender-based oppression. Addicted men may worry more about the effects admitting to addiction and seeking treatment may have on their careers. Groups that share similar concerns and struggles may be better able to empathize with one another collaborate to create recovery strategies.
