Club Drug Addiction Treatment
Sprout Health Texas begins each treatment with a thorough assessment to determine how severe the addiction is.
Drugs are constantly evolving, becoming more potent and significantly more dangerous. These new drugs, called designer drugs, are primarily used for their psychoactive effects; however, studies show that date rape, due to the 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, GHG 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.
Sprout Health Texas Can Help Combat Club Drugs
Sprout Health Texas 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.
We offer a wide variety of therapeutic modalities, such as the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which teaches patients to recognize their maladaptive behaviors in order to change how they react to certain situations.
