Treatment for Hallucinogens and LSD
Fortunately, while LSD is frequently abused, unlike many narcotic substances, such as heroin, alcohol, or even tobacco, LSD is not a physically addictive substance. It does not create an actual physiological dependency where the body craves the substance, which makes treatment for hallucinogens a little easier. In some ways, treatment options for LSD are similar to treatment options for gambling, eating disorders, or any other primarily psychological addiction.
Unfortunately, this isn’t necessarily true of all hallucinogenic substances. PCP does have the physically addictive properties of other narcotics, while mescaline and psilocybin are still not well understood. However, if you or someone you know needs the help of an LSD treatment center, your chances of success are bolstered by the fact that, at least with LSD, you don’t have to wrestle with physical withdrawal symptoms or physical cravings.
