K2 Addiction Spice Treatment

Spice: New, Addictive, and Harmful

What is Spice

sprout_fl_k2_spiceSpice is also known as K2, Green Giant, Red Dawn, AK 47, and X, is one of the newest drugs on the streets. It claims to act like marijuana but with 800 times more potency. This drug is also much more dangerous than marijuana. It is very addictive, and hundreds of people are hospitalized for overdoses every few weeks.

The drug is completely man-made and has detrimental effects on those who use it.

Negative Side Effects
The adverse effects of K2 are seemingly endless. Below is a list of the immediate effects followed by some of the long-term effects:

Immediate

  • Euphoria
  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Confusion
  • Paranoia
  • Delusions
  • Psychosis
  • Tremors
  • Seizures

Long Term

  • Depression
  • Suicidal Tendencies
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Lack of Tissue Oxygenation
  • Physical Dependence

Many people perceive marijuana as a safe, organic, and harmless drug. By associating spice with Marijuana, people may become more comfortable with the idea of taking it. From the list of adverse effects and the intensity of these effects, we can see that Spice is extremely harmful and not something to be taken lightly. The euphoria experienced at the time of the initial high is matched by extreme depression soon after and is hard to shake. Such severe depression leads to suicidal thoughts and tendencies making it even more dangerous.

Use of the drug can also confuse reality with delusions making the user extremely confused and lost. The dangers of overdose are also very real, and treatment must be received in time to avoid these.

Treatment

Experience with spice is a unique trip and difficult to come back from. Use of this drug is both physically and mentally damaging, and careful treatment is crucial. Detox must be performed and supervised by a medical professional and therapy is necessary for a full recovery. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the most effective when handling this type of drug abuse. Patients learn how to deal with potentially stressful situations in a healthy way and without drugs use. Co-occurring mental disorders ten come with this type of addiction. Sprout Health Florida professionals are aware of the common effects of Spice usage and can help you overcome this addiction with the support of their welcoming and knowledgeable staff.
