LSD is more than just a spiritual aide or a harmless party drug—it’s an unpredictable substance that can alter your brain chemistry in unpleasant and sometimes permanent ways. If your use of acid or other psychedelics is starting to interfere with your life, Nexstep Medical Detox can help you kick start your recovery. The caring staff at our Salt Lake City facility have years of experience helping people detox from a wide variety of substances.
The Dangers Of “Tripping”
Although many people argue that psychedelic drugs are safe and non-addictive compared to stimulants, depressants, and other addictive substances, there are still risks involved with an acid trip. For instance, it can significantly increase the risk of psychosis in people with a family history of schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, and can occasionally lead to other psychological problems in people without a family history of mental illness.
Psychedelics Can Be Addictive
Even though they don’t usually cause a physical dependency, hallucinogens like LSD can still lead to addiction because people can become attached to the sensory distortions and emotions produced by the altered states of consciousness. Frequent or long-term psychedelic use increases the likelihood of long-term mental health issues.
Frequent Use Can Lead To An Overdose
Moreover, it’s possible to develop a tolerance to psychedelics. This can lead people to take increasingly higher doses to achieve the same “high,” which increases the risk of having a bad trip or overdosing. LSD overdoses can have unpleasant and potentially life-threatening consequences, such as suicidal behavior and serotonin syndrome.
Signs Of A Bad Trip
- Debilitating Anxiety
- Intense Mood Swings
- Distorted Perception Of Time
- Aggressive Or Self-Destructive Behavior
- Psychotic Symptoms
