Overcome Hallucinogen
Addiction at DiscoveryMD

The counterculture of the 1960s made hallucinogens, such as lysergic acid diethylamide (better known as LSD), famous. These drugs create hallucinations—hence its name—for the user, where they see and imagine things that don’t exist. Even famous children’s stories like “Alice in Wonderland” or “Dumbo” reference such imagery related to hallucinogens. Long-term effects of hallucinogens can be quite harmful but treatment for this addiction is available.
