Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), also known as acid, has been a hallucinogenic drug used for generations. While generally accepted to not be addictive, it’s possible to develop a tolerance to LSD, requiring users to take more and more of the drug to achieve the same effects.
Often used recreationally, LSD abuse comes with certain risks. Users can experience moments of intense anxiety and fear. People who have certain severe mental disorders, such as schizophrenia, can experience psychosis while using the drug. Also, prolonged abuse may result in hallucinogen persisting perception disorder, a long-lasting sensory problem.
Withdrawal from LSD abuse fortunately has no physical symptoms. However, the mental compulsions which may be driving LSD abuse benefit from medical intervention. Clinical detox is the first and best step to addressing LSD abuse and any underlying issues.
