Kicking the Club Drug Habit
Drugs are constantly evolving, becoming more potent and significantly more dangerous. These new drugs, called designer drugs, are being introduced in clubs that cater to young adults, who are the most susceptible to peer pressure and have a strong desire to fit in. While these drugs are primarily used for their psychoactive effects, studies show that date rape, due to designer drugs being slipped into drinks, has risen significantly over the years.
The psychoactive effects of the drugs are appealing to most young adults who are looking to escape from the everyday stresses of transitioning from an adolescent to adult. The mind-altering qualities allow users to depersonalize, also known as the feeling of an out of body experience. While these effects sound fun for the moment, the short and long-term effects of these drugs can be devastating.
The side effects of designer drugs, such as ecstasy, GHB and LSD, include an immense high, rapid heart beat, lowered blood pressure, and the risk of stroke or heart attack. These drugs also alter the chemicals in the brain, which significantly affects both cognitive and physical development.
Treating Club Drug Addition
Sprout Health Arizona begins each treatment with a thorough assessment to determine how severe the addiction is. We follow each assessment with a detoxification process that can include withdrawal symptoms. Depending on the severity of the withdrawal symptoms, detox will either take place in a hospital setting or at our facility. Because designer drugs are known to deplete nutritional health, we provide nutritional therapy during the detox process. After the detox process is complete, we will begin our highly individualized treatment programs that are designed to meet each patient’s unique needs.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Sprout Health Arizona offers a wide variety of therapies but our most effective therapy is the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. During our sessions, we will teach our patients how to recognize their problems and create their own solutions. We also help patients acknowledge their maladaptive behaviors in order to find ways to change them.
No matter the substance is, we take treatment very seriously and assure you that we will provide support and guidance all along the way. Our goal is for you to achieve a successful recovery in order to live a long lasting life of sobriety.
