Hallucinogen Addiction Resources

What are they?

Hallucinogens are a large class of illegal drugs. Some varieties of hallucinogens are found in nature, including psilocybin mushrooms and peyote.​1  Man-made hallucinogens include; ​​ecstasy​, ​Molly, LSD, ​angel dust​ or Special K Ketamine. 

 

In most cases, the addict does not get the pure form of any of these drugs. In fact, most Ecstasy and Molly have at least 20 different ingredients. Some is mixed with heroin.

Signs someone is misusing:

A person using hallucinogens for a long period of time may experience blurry vision, see halos, experience paranoia, mood swings, hallucinations, and difficulty concentrating. These signs are sometimes mistaken for neurological disorders.2

 

One of the biggest long term side effects that studies have shown is severe depression. Especially those who have taken large amounts of Ecstasy or Molly over a period of time.

How they're taken:

Hallucinogens can be swallowed in pill, tablet, or liquid form, snorted, injected, or inhaled depending on the substance.​4

What they do to you:

Hallucinogens alter a user’s thoughts and feelings, distort the user’s perception of reality, through vivid hallucinations. Short term side effects could include increased heart rate, panic, and nausea.
