Hallucinogens are a class of drugs that affect the visual and auditory senses within the human body. As a result, people who take hallucinogens tend to see and hear things that aren’t there. In other words, hallucinogens alter people’s sense of reality.

What Drugs Make You Hallucinate?

There are many drugs that can make people hallucinate. Some of the most common ones are:

  • Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD)
  • Psilocybin, otherwise known as shrooms
  • Ketamine
  • Phencyclidine or phenyl cyclohexyl piperidine (PCP)
  • Peyote
  • Methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA), otherwise known as ecstasy
  • Ayahuasca
  • Salvia
  • Cannabis

While doctors and medical professionals can use some hallucinogenic drugs to help treat medical conditions or help people with certain medical conditions cope with pain, most people take hallucinogens recreationally. This is harmful, as many hallucinogens are classified as Schedule 1 under the Controlled Substances Act. This means that hallucinogens contain high potential for abuse. As a result, most hallucinogens are illegal to use in America. Also, due to the high potential of abuse of hallucinogens, many people who use hallucinogens end up needing hallucinogen treatment.

How Long Are Hallucinogens Detectable in a Person’s System?

The length of time that drug tests can detect hallucinogens in a person’s body varies depending on the drug and the body part that is being tested. For example, the length of time that drug tests can detect many hallucinogens in hair is up to 90 days, while the length of time that drug tests can detect hallucinogens after their use in blood, saliva, or urine is usually much shorter.

Another example of how the detectability of hallucinogens in drug tests can vary is in the fact that drug tests can detect ketamine and ecstasy in a person’s blood for up to around 3 days after the last use of the drugs while drug tests can only detect cannabis for about 12 hours in blood after its last use.

Levels of Hallucinogen Treatment Offered at Bayview Recovery Center

Bayview Recovery Centerfocuses on outpatient forms of treatment. As a result, the recovery center uses partial hospitalization program (PHP) treatment, intensive outpatient program treatment (IOP), and outpatient program (OP) treatment to treat its patients.

Partial hospitalization program (PHP) treatment is the most intensive level of outpatient care. PHP patients attend rehab for approximately five to eight hours a day, five days a week. PHP treatment typically occurs for around 30 to 90 days.

Individuals who need intensive treatment but still want the autonomy and freedom to tend to their live’s responsibilities should look into receiving PHP treatment. At Bayview Recovery Center, PHP patients live in housing but are situated in an off-campus facility. Thus, these patients have close access to Bayview Recovery’s support staff, but only if and when they need it.

Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are the second most intensive level of outpatient care. An IOP for drug rehab such as treatment for hallucinogens addiction occurs several hours a day, three to five days a week, for around eight to 12 weeks. Through Bayview Recovery Center’s IOPs, individuals can receive a wide array of leading therapies from qualified counselors who are educated in drug rehab and mental health treatment.

An IOP is a great form of hallucinogen treatment for someone who desires structured treatment, but does not need 24-hour supervision or medical care. People who attend IOP treatment for drug rehab also get to receive the autonomy and freedom that they need to tend to their regular life responsibilities.

Outpatient Programs (OPs) are the least intensive level of outpatient care. As a result, OP patients only really need to attend rehab for a few hours a day, one to three days a week.

Individuals that have already completed detox and have supportive home environments and milder hallucinogen addictions should receive OP treatment. OP treatment is also ideal for people who still want to maintain their regular work and family obligations while receiving care.

Dual diagnosis treatment, otherwise known as, co-occurring disorders treatment, simultaneously gives individuals drug rehab and mental health treatment. Our dual diagnosis treatment center is often the best form of care for people attending drug rehab. This is because of the fact that mental health issues are often the stimuli that cause people to develop drug abuse issues in the first place.
