In the 1960s, the counter-culture indulged in hallucinogens and brought them to the world’s attention. Hallucinogens are a class of drug that distorts the user’s perception of reality. You may have heard this referred to as a trip. While tripping, you can’t function normally, such as going to work or attending classes, and you may see and hear things that aren’t really happening. You may have started using hallucinogens recreationally but now find yourself facing addiction.
There are long-term health issues for hallucinogen addiction. You may experience weight loss, depression and anxiety. Depending on the hallucinogen you use, you may experience damage and changes to brain chemistry. But there is hope to change all this damage around when you seek treatment and finally obtain lifelong recovery.
