Club Drug Addiction Treatment Details
In our Club Drug Addiction Treatment program, we design treatment plans by taking into consideration all different aspects of people’s lives, including physical health history to environmental stressors to lifestyle, relationships, and current goals. We strongly believe that in order to help people achieve sobriety that they can sustain, we must also equip them to remain sober in their lives, moving forward. For this reason we also have designed a state of the art Lakehouse Sober Living program option, as well as numerous after-care services. Each of our Club Drug Addiction Treatment plans is focused on the person’s particular history and habits of drug use.
Ecstasy is the most commonly abusedamong Club Drugs. While it’s often abused for the sought-after effect of feeling connected to others and experiencing enhanced senses, there are also a number of risks associated with Ecstasy Abuse, both during and following use, including increased heart rate, chills, jaw clenching, anxiety, irritability, depression, aggression, and paranoia.
GHB is a synthetic drug that acts as a central nervous system depressant. One of the risks of GHB is the potency can vary greatly and in some cases, can slow the heart rate to dangerous levels, especially when combined with alcohol, which is common in the party settings. Some of the other negative side effects associated with GHB abuse include: combativeness, amnesia, hallucinations, confusion, and nausea.
Ketamine is a drug used as an anesthetic in veterinary practice, but abused as a hallucinogen and/or for its extreme depressive effects. Ketamine is an extremely strong substance and can cause a litany of negative side effects including: extreme slowed heart rate, vomiting, nausea, dizziness, hallucinations, blurry vision, and delirium. In some instances, Ketamine is also known as a “date rape” drug.
Rohypnol (also known as Roofies) is an extremely powerful benzodiazepine drug, in the same class as the prescription drug, Xanax. Rohypnol is knownas a date rape drug as well, because of it has no odor or taste, and is strong enough to incapacitate a person. Rohypnol Addiction has extremely strong effects on the central nervous system and as such, withdrawal from the substance must be overseen by a health professional.
LSD is a hallucinogenic drug beginning to regain popularity, especially in settings such as concerts and college parties. LSD is abused to experience the hallucinations associated with the high; however, there are also a number of severe negative effects people are at risk for, including extreme dangerous behavior, delusions, increased heart rate, extreme mood changes, and short or long-term psychosis.
