Therapeutic Solutions PC, we have treated many individuals who have suffered from drug or substance
abuse addiction. The most common types of substance abuse that we have
seen include cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamines, ecstasy, and heroin.
Many of these are potent, and because of their strongly addictive nature,
they can easily get people hooked.
On another end of the spectrum, there is another type of drug that is becoming
a very serious concern recently: synthetic drugs. Synthetic drugs are
not only incredibly potent and have a high rate of tendency for addiction,
their properties are often place individuals at a much greater risk of harm.
Read on to learn more about the dangers of synthetic drugs!
Defining Synthetic Drugs
A synthetic drug is often manufactured using a variety of chemicals. These
products are created with the intention to mimic the euphoria or “high”
of naturally-derived drugs. What can make these drugs so dangerous is
that they might be cut with other potentially harmful substances, and
then used to be sold as street drugs.
Some examples of common synthetic drugs:
- Bath salts
- Party pills
- Synthetic cannabinoids, sometimes known as K2 or Spice
- Synthetic cocaine
What might be the most alarming about synthetic drugs is that some individuals
might turn to synthetic drugs, thinking that they are not consuming actual
drugs such as cocaine, ecstasy, or heroin. They might not realize that
these drugs might only compound the toxic effects. We know that synthetic
drugs can be just as addictive as the drugs they are intended to mimic.
That is why we want to help you fight the addiction and get started on
the road towards recovery.
