Club Drug Addiction Treatment
A September 2013 study showed that people were already exposed to using club drugs at around 12 years old. 8.2% of high school students, according to the University of Michigan, use MDMA, meth, GHB, and Rohypnol. Among them are 8th graders to 12th graders who have been reported to have access with MDMA, which students said, were fairly easy to get.
Out of 5. 1 million people that were rushed to the emergency department, 2. 5 million of those were reported to have abused or misused drugs, or were drugged. These numbers keep on increasing day by day, as if drugs were sold like candies.
Understanding Club Drug Addiction?
Club drugs, as the name refers, are drugs that are used by people at parties, concerts, raves, and nightclubs. These are produced differently and each has its own effects and symptoms to the user. Among the many names of club drugs include; Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) or Ecstasy, Rohypnol, GHB, and Ketamine, which are sometimes hidden in different names such as Liquid X, Georgia, K, Vitamin K, and Kit Kat.
What happens to your body when you consume club drugs?
The truth is that; these substances are extraordinarily dangerous. What they do is damage your brain and organs to the point where your personality will suffer, where your neural pathways can become blocked and slowed, where your heart and liver can become damaged to the point of coma or death. Even in the short term, risk for overdose or questionable decision-making is very high.
These party drugs usually affect your brain’s neurotransmitters, a chemical found in your body that is responsible for controlling emotions, movements, and memory. Thus, when taking club drugs, you could be increasing your mood and intensify your energy, which is beyond normal. Overall, consuming club drugs could lead to permanent brain damage.
Among other symptoms include:
- Kidney, lung, and hear failure
- Garbled speech
Why must I quit drugs?
The ultimate goal of treating ecstasy addiction or GHB addiction, just as two examples, is to bring back your old self—that self, which is, in the real essence of the word, joyful. Joyful not because you have taken a substance that stimulates your happy hormones, but because you are free from the clutches of addiction.
