One of the most powerful synthesized hallucinogens available is lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). Also known as “acid,” the drug is usually sold in square-shaped tablets, paper blotters called “tabs,” and gelatin squares.

The psychedelic soared to popularity in the early 1960s and is notorious for dramatic disconnects from reality, which can lead to terrifying “bad trips” of paranoia and unenjoyable distortion lasting up to 12 hours.

Although it has a low addictive potential, LSD is abused for its escapist effects by users who often want to flee from reality. This is where Sovereign Health can help, by providing complete LSD detox and residential treatment to fully address mental duress and other issues.

LSD forms

LSD comes in many different forms, from a clear or white crystalline substance to tan or black, varying by its purity. LSD is usually crushed into a fine powder and pressed into tablet form, or on small gelatin squares. LSD is also dissolved into a solution called blotter acid and soaked into tiny squares of paper called “tabs.”

LSD effects

  • Synesthesia – a sensory phenomenon where people can see smells or hear colors
  • Intensified senses of sound or touch
  • Visual hallucinations being abundantly vivid in color or geometric flashes of light in sync with other patterns, regardless of whether the eyes are open or shut
  • Out-of body sensations or that one’s body has changed shape
  • Hallucinations
  • Euphoria
  • Altered perception of time, space and speed
  • Dilated pupils
  • Higher or lower body temperature
  • Sweating or chills (“goose bumps”)
  • Loss of appetite
  • Sleeplessness
  • Dry mouth
  • Tremors
  • Dizziness

One of the most distinguishing effects of LSD compared to other drugs is the possibility of flashback of a previous trip, without warning and long after taking the drug.

What is Addiction?

Addiction is a disease that manipulates a person’s sense of reward, motivation, memory and a number of related neurological functions.

Inside the body

When a user takes LSD, brain regions once segregated talk to one another. Other brain regions that typically form a network will separate while high, creating a strong sentiment of oneness with the world. This loss of personal identity is called “ego dissolution.”

During acid trips, the formerly separate brain networks governing vision, attention, movement and hearing will further intertwine, leading to what looks like a more cohesive brain. At the same time, the communication between other networks – the parahippocampus and the adjacent retrosplenial cortex – break down.  The former brain region is responsible for contextual processing and associations, while the latter governs navigation, special mapping and episodic memory.

Scientists are still testing and analyzing to understand the whole of what LSD does in the brain. We do know it can induce permanent hallucinations called hallucinogen persisting perception disorder (HPPD) or persistent psychosis depending on the severity.

Due to the effects of LSD on the mind and body, it is important to find treatment LSD addiction to minimize damage and maximize recovery.

Getting help for abuse

LSD highs are called “trips” for a reason: Users take drastic measures for the escapist characteristics of the mind/body disassociation as an ill coping mechanism for past or present trauma, mental disorder or genetic predisposition to addiction. The dangerous side effects of LSD use make effective LSD treatments that much more vital

Sovereign Health provides complete LSD recovery because we connect our holistic detox to cognitive modalities to restore brain wellness. What makes Sovereign Health a leader among LSD recovery programs is our dedication to healing from the inside, out. Other LSD rehab centers address the external symptoms without helping the individual recover from mental issues that fuel substance abuse.

Here at Sovereign we believe treatment is not complete until it encompasses the whole person: mind, body and soul.
