Psilocybin Mushrooms Treatment for Addiction
Fortunately for those that abuse mushrooms, mushrooms treatment is less physically severe than narcotics. Psilocybin is not physically addictive, which is to say that even extended, repeated use of the narcotic does not create an actual physical craving within the body. Users can only become psychologically addicted to mushrooms, similar to gambling or video games.
Because of this, there is no physically painful withdrawal period requiring a closely supervised detoxification, but that doesn’t mean that psilocybin mushrooms treatment is easier. It just means that it is not as physically demanding. Mushrooms treatment still requires work, counseling, and personalized therapy to give those addicted the best chance of learning new coping strategies that will allow them to negotiate the challenges of life without resorting to substance use.
