DMT Addiction Treatment
Dimethyltryptamine, also known as DMT, is a potent hallucinogenic drug that affects the body’s serotonergic system, causing users to experience a psychedelic high and hallucinations. It has an international classification as a Schedule I drug, the highest possible classification.
A fall 2012 Global Drug Survey revealed that 8.9% of respondents had at least tried DMT at some point in the lives, and that 5% of respondents had used it within the past year. DMT had a reportedly higher rate of new users compared to other hallucinogens such as psilocybin (mushrooms), LSD, and ketamine, with the DMT drug use rate being 24%.
DMT seems to be increasing in popularity due to its relatively few negative side effects and lower capacity to cause addiction compared to many other substances, but it still remains a dangerous drug with the potential to cause harm to its users.
