Over recent years, addiction to synthetic drugs (or “designer drugs”) has risen rampantly. Habitual use of drugs such as K2, spice, bath salts, and ecstasy/molly has been shown to ruin relationships, careers, and lives. In Portland, Maine at Liberty Bay Recovery, we are committed to providing guests with a thorough recovery action plan for reaching a state of liberating sobriety.
What Is Synthetic Drug Rehab?
These days, synthetic drugs such as bath salts, spice, molly, and K2 prevail as one of the most popular drug choices in the world. This is because they are readily available in smoke shops and convenience stores. The effects caused by these drugs can be so intense that they can take top priority over everything else in a person’s life. As seen in recent media stories, the effects from these types of drugs can last for days on end. Blood circulation complications, increased heart rate, and kidney failure are just a few types of physical damage that synthetic drugs can cause.
Signs of Synthetic Drug Abuse
The effects of synthetic drugs are great in number, but there are a few telltale signs of abuse. These include the following:
- Aggressive, extreme, and erratic behavior
- Paranoia and delusional thinking
- Feeling on edge
- Feeling suicidal or thinking of harming others
