DMT Addiction

DMT Addiction Facts

DMT addiction treatment is an involved process that requires users and abusers to look inward and identify their personal reasons for endangering themselves with such a drug. As one of the most highly restricted substances in the world, DMT use is highly risky behavior, and one may have difficulty retaining their perception of reality afterwards. DMT addiction recovery is not impossible, but requires dedicated staff and vigilance from former addicts.

What is DMT?

DMT is one of the most powerful hallucinogens in the world, and as such is one of the most heavily restricted. It gives users a high that produces unnatural visions and a distorted view of reality. The chemical is naturally occurring in certain plants, but is often synthesized artificially. Because of its international classification as a Schedule 1 drug, the highest classification in the system, it is difficult to acquire and is rarely seen on the street.

How is DMT Used?

DMT can be smoked, snorted, injected, or consumed. Its effects last 2 to 3 hours, after which one often experiences an agitated state as it wears off. DMT affects all 5 senses, so users are continuously at risk during their use. The effects are tied to the user’s own subconscious state, so DMT highs may be pleasurable or traumatically frightening.

DMT Addiction Symptoms

DMT does not create chemical dependencies in its users, but repeated abuse leads to a higher tolerance. People with a tolerance require a greater amount of the substance in order to achieve the desired effects, which exposes them to more risk and higher financial liability. For people suffering from other psychological conditions, DMT may seem like an escape from reality that one can easily get hooked on.

DMT Addiction Withdrawal

During the comedown from a DMT high, one may become agitated, paranoid, and experience difficulty exercising sound judgement. Because of how the drug alters one’s perception of reality, users sometimes lose their inhibitions and put themselves at risk. Repeat users that require higher dosages may experience headaches, blurred vision, and heart palpitations.

DMT Addiction Treatment

DMT addiction recovery is a personal process that addresses the individual reasons why one feels the need to abuse the drug. Treatments can be inpatient or outpatient. If one is experiencing the dangerous consequences of the comedown from DMT, medical supervision and detoxification is highly recommended. Because of the inaccessibility of DMT, most users will have likely experimented with other drugs during their period of abuse, and will need personal treatments based on their entire history.
