It's never to late, Break the Addiction

K2/Spice Addiction Treatment

Spice and Synthetic Drug Addiction

Spice is a synthetic material that is 800 times more powerful than marijuana. It is so new that medical researchers have not yet been able to fully review its effects, both long and short term, but what they do know is that it is highly addictive and widely used among young adults.

Spice, a supposed marijuana substance, first became popular in the 21st Century. As of May 2015, many people were admitted to the hospital due to spice overdoses. Because of the lack of research, spice can only be compared to the effects of marijuana. Experts say that if marijuana affects our cognitive functioning, imagine what a synthetic substance that is 800 times more potent can do to our functioning, both mental and physical.

Acknowledging the Signs and Symptoms of Spice Use

Based on the effects of marijuana, medical experts say that the symptoms will include:

  • Extreme anxieties
  • Seizures
  • Tremors
  • Heightened moods
  • Delusions
  • Paranoia
  • Inability to distinguish reality from imagination

Like most drugs that produce an extreme high, users will continually abuse the substance in order to continually experience the feeling. However, studies show that prolonged use of substances that affect the brain’s neurotransmitter causes tolerance and dependence on the substance because the brain can no longer produce its natural pleasure receptors.

Treating Spice Addiction

Before our expertly trained staff at Sprout Health Arizona develop a highly individualized treatment plan based on your unique needs, you will undergo a thorough mental and physical assessment. This assessment will help us diagnose your condition as well as any underlying disorders. Based upon your assessment, a proper detoxification and treatment plan will be crafted for you.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

One of Sprout Health Arizona’s most effective therapies, the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, helps our patients acknowledge their problems and find solutions. It also teaches various ways to combat their addictive personalities and maladaptive behaviors.

Family Therapy

We also offer family therapy. We believe that having a large support group during and after treatment is extremely important to maintain sobriety. With our patient’s consent, we include their families during therapy sessions. This allows us to gain further insight into their health history and family life, which is necessary for us to adjust their treatment plans accordingly.

Our goal at Sprout Health Arizona is to provide our patients with the tools and support necessary to ensure a successful recovery.
