Orange County Hallucinogen Addiction Treatment Center
Often associated with psychedelic drugs, such as LSD and ecstasy (learn more about our ecstasy addiction treatment center in Laguna Beach), hallucinogens profoundly distort an individual’s perception of reality. Hallucinogens can be either naturally occurring, like peyote, or synthetic. The danger of hallucinogen abuse is the chemical make-up of such drugs can vary greatly, to the point where individuals may consume, usually in the form of pills, capsules or vapors, a much stronger dosage than they intended to take. These are just some of the many reasons why professional hallucinogen addiction treatment centers make sense.

Effects of Hallucinogens
While the long-term impact of hallucinogens is debatable, there is a possible link between some hallucinogenic drugs and the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia-related conditions, schizophrenia, and other mental conditions. Due to the diverse chemical make-up of such drugs, effects often felt immediately, can last anywhere from half an hour to 12 hours or longer. Mood changes associated with hallucinogens depend on factors such as the number of drugs consumed, a person’s weight and metabolism, and any other drugs that may be in the user’s system. Users can go through a variety of emotions, from feeling frightened for no real reason to “hearing” colors and “seeing” sounds due to an inability to perceive reality. If you or a loved one need help from a hallucinogen addiction rehab center and also struggle with a mental health condition, Oceanfront Recovery offers a dual diagnosis treatment program in Laguna Beach, California.

- Dilated pupils
- Elevated body temperature
