How Is LSD Addiction Treated?
In cases where LSD use crosses the boundary to diagnosable substance abuse–or when the LSD use occurs in conjunction with the abuse of other substances–the patient may be referred to a treatment program, either on an inpatient or outpatient basis.
There are no medication-based treatments for LSD abuse, but medications may be prescribed for any underlying mental or physical health issues identified during treatment.
Psychotherapy, group therapy, and support group meetings are typically used to treat substance abuse.
- Detoxification. Treatment centers will often require that users undergo a detox period to remove any lingering remnants of the drug from their bodies. This is especially true if the patient is admitted to a treatment center on an emergency basis during active drug use.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This type of psychotherapy helps drug users to recognize the triggers that prompt their drug use. The therapy also focuses on developing strategies and techniques for dealing with those triggers when they occur. CBT can be effective at preventing relapses once the patient has begun to abstain from drug use.
