K2/Spice Treatment Center

Our expertly trained staff at Sprout Health Texas assess and evaluate each patient’s mental and physical health.

Spice Withdrawal TreatmentSpice is a synthetic material that is 800 times more powerful than marijuana. It is very new; therefore, medical researchers have not yet been able to review its long-term effects. What they do know if that it is highly addictive and widely used among young adults.

Spice, a supposed marijuana substance, first became popular in the early 2000’s. 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.

Recognizing 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.

Sprout Health Texas Treats Spice Addiction

Our expertly trained staff at Sprout Health Texas assess and evaluate each patient’s mental and physical health. We begin each program with a detoxification process; depending on the severity of the addiction, this process will be performed in a hospital setting or at our facility. Either way, patients will be closely monitored in order for their programs to be adjusted according to their progress.

After detox, we begin with a combination of our therapeutic modalities. One of our 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.

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.
