If you or a loved one is struggling with psychedelic drug addiction, there are many drug rehab centers available in South Dakota. If one wishes to go out of state for treatment, there are many detox centers and outpatient or inpatient drug treatments available all across the United States.
South Dakota has been one of the few states that have stayed below the national average when it comes to substance abuse despite the nation’s growing drug epidemic. It has seen 48 deaths over the ten-year span between 1999 and 2009 which is very low when compared nationally. But like everywhere, drugs still exist and to the degree that anyone is dying from them, there’s room for improvement.
One area that’s become an issue for most states is the use of psychedelics. While these may seem like a thing of the past, psychedelics have grown very popular again with the advent of synthetic drugs. Synthetics are drugs that are made in a lab and are purely chemical in nature. They aren’t extracted from anything else and result from chemical mixtures that are combined and put through certain reactions.
Psychedelics are called such because they produce hallucinations or distortions in sensory perception. Drugs like LSD and Peyote have been reinvented into various chemical analogs which have very intense effects and can be extremely addictive. Even marijuana has been chemically mimicked, which has resulted in a terrifying concoction known as Spice. Spice has made its way through communities and left people with crippling addictions, overdoses, and death. What was once viewed as “fake weed” sold in gas stations has proven to be severely underestimated.
It’s important to get help if you’re addicted to any substance. But be careful not to underestimate the new trend of synthetic drugs. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
