Through drug detox, we can help your loved ones overcome their troubling addiction.
What Are Synthetic Drugs?
Synthetic drugs, often called designer drugs, are chemically made versions of illegal drugs altered slightly to avoid being classified as illegal. What began as chemical experiments are now a slew of new drugs being sold legally on the internet or in stores labeled with disguised
phrases to mask their intended purpose and avoid health and safety rules.
Some of these synthetic drugs may be called:
- Herbal incense
- Plant food
- Bath salts
- Jewelry cleaner
These synthetic drugs have quickly become an issue nationwide. Teenagers and young adults assume synthetic drugs are the best new way to get high safely. Sadly, the side effects put your health at risk and, as with almost all drugs, can lead to addiction.
The effects of synthetic drugs can be violent and lethal as the high comes on fast and strong. Common symptoms of someone who has taken synthetic drugs include severe anxiety and paranoia, aggression, and hallucinations. Severe side effects include seizures, chest pain or heart attack, and suicidal or homicidal behavior. If you notice these symptoms in a friend or family member, reach out to us immediately to discuss a synthetic drug detox to begin the rehab process.
Warning Signs of Synthetic Drug Use and Addiction
If you are concerned that you or a loved one is addicted to synthetic drugs, some signs of addiction you should watch for include:
- Extreme secrecy
- Neglecting responsibilities
- Needing more of the synthetic drug to get high
- Continuing to use synthetic drugs despite knowing that they are causing harm
- Trouble with relationships at work, school, and home
Getting someone who is struggling with synthetic drug addiction help as soon as possible is vital. The best and safest way to break synthetic drug addiction is with professional support in an addiction detox and treatment facility.
What Is a Synthetic Drug Addiction Treatment Program?
A synthetic drug addiction treatment program may be the best chance for a loved one to quit safely and restart their life. This program at Liberty Health Services will be tailored to the client’s individual needs and concerns but will consist of two parts, synthetic drug detox, and addiction treatment.
Synthetic Drug Detox
People who have abused synthetic drugs for a long time or in large quantities are likely to have developed a physical dependence on them. This will lead to uncomfortable synthetic drug withdrawal symptoms when they stop using them. Receiving professional care in a synthetic drug addiction treatment center is the best cause of action to securely and safely get better.
Liberty Health Services’s medically supervised synthetic drug detox provides support round-the-clock in a luxurious wooded setting. Withdrawal can be unpredictable. So, once the synthetic drug withdrawal symptoms have subsided, clients can focus on starting a rehab program to address the underlying causes of synthetic drug addiction and work to change behaviors for long-term recovery.
Rehab and Recovery
Receiving additional care in our synthetic drug addiction treatment center can last anywhere from one to three months, depending on your specific needs and the severity of your addiction. Your rehab and recovery treatment will be professional and individualized and will focus on you as a whole person. You will come to Liberty Health Services for your synthetic drug detox, and we’ll help you with the rest of your recovery journey, including:
- 12-Step programs
- Family therapy
- Individual therapy
- Self-help support group
- Inpatient program
- Outpatient program
With professional help and support, individuals are better able to break the cycle of addiction and regain control of their lives.
Benefits of Professional Treatment
