Ketamine Addiction Treatment
Ketamine Addiction Help in Essex & London
Ketamine has long been used by medical professionals and veterinarians as an anesthetic. It is also sometimes used illegally by those seeking a recreational high.
Effects of Taking Ketamine
Ketamine can produce psychedelic effects for the user, causing them to smell, feel, hear, see or even taste things that aren’t actually there. When sold illegally, ketamine may come in the form of white powder, tablets, pills or even as a liquid.
What Is Ketamine Addiction?
In addition to providing an almost out of body experience, ketamine can provide an almost sedative-like effect and make it difficult for the user to move.
At very high doses, it can feel almost like a near death experience with other users reporting an almost bliss-like state of sheer happiness. It’s perhaps these effects which make it such an appealing drug.
Signs & Symptoms of Ketamine Addiction
While many use it recreationally, there is most certainly a difference between abuse and addiction. Here are signs of addiction you should look out for:
- Frequent distraction or drowsiness
- Difficulty concentrating
- Lack of motivation
- Reduced ability to feel pain
- Slurring of speech
- Redness of the skin
- Difficulty with coordination
If you or someone you know is experiencing cravings or just a general preoccupation with ketamine, along with some or all of the signs listed above, they could very well have an addiction to ketamine, making it increasingly difficult to quit.
Ways of Taking Ketamine
Ketamine can be abused in a number of different ways,
- Injection Into The Body
- Snorting Ketamine Powder
For many, ketamine addiction begins as a form of self-medication as they attempt to self-medicate themselves through depression or even suicidal thoughts as it’s very quick to alleviate these particular states or feelings.
