Psilocybin Drug Rehab
A word about psilocybin
Psilocybin is a hallucinogenic substance, the active ingredient of which is most commonly found in certain types of mushrooms. As a result of the source, psilocybin is referred to as “shrooms”, the common terminology used on the street. Once it is ingested, psilocybin rapidly metabolizes and targets the serotonin receptors of the person’s brain. There are typically hallucinations and other mind-altering characteristics which can last anywhere from 3 to 8 hour at a time depending on how much has been ingested.
Is psilocybin addictive?
Unlike other addictive substances, psilocybin does not normally produce results that would be considered addictive. As a result, most medical professionals do not consider it to be an addictive substance. Very low percentages of what could be considered addictive behavior happen, but there have been reported cases of habitual abuse. Characteristically, a tolerance to psilocybin can occur when it is used on an ongoing basis and the body becomes tolerant to the substance.
Normally, the effects do not last as long as the tolerance continues to build so the individual may start ingesting it more frequently or in larger doses to achieve the desired effect. On the other hand, this tolerance build-up results in many people discontinuing the use of psilocybin. It is because of this that many medical experts feel that psilocybin is nothing more than a psychedelic drug and does not typically lead to addiction.
Psilocybin drug rehab programs
Despite not being recognized as an addictive substance, many individuals take psilocybin persistently in order to enjoy the effects of the drug. As a result, there has been an increase in the number of medical cases that are associated with the use of it. Additionally, numerous addiction treatment and recovery centers now offer psilocybin drug rehab programs. Although these programs are fewer in number than those that treat the more addictive substances, there is still a need for these programs.
The traditional addiction treatment and recovery facilities are not properly addressing psilocybin abuse which is witnessed in the failure of their programs at enabling a person to recover successfully and remain substance-free for life. Traditional treatment and recovery facilities still rely on conventional therapies and take a one-size-fits-all approach to treating psilocybin abuse. As a result, the client doesn’t learn how to avoid the behavior that led to the abuse so they eventually relapse.
The Freedom Treatment Center has a psilocybin drug rehab program that can be tailored to your individual needs so that when you leave our facility and return home to society, you will remain substance-free for the rest of your life.
