Flakka Detox
Detox From Flakka

Flakka is a designer drug using a core component found in other drugs known as “bath salts”. It provides the user with increased energy and a sense of euphoria, similar to that of meth or other amphetamine-based drugs. Flakka is typically found in a white and chalky-colored “rock” form or crystalized. It can be snorted, swallowed, injected or smoked, making it extremely versatile. The most concerning part is that it can even be vaporized using electronic cigarettes, allowing it to be used completely in public with no one the wiser. The difficult part is controlling its wide array of disturbing side effects.

Treating Flakka Addiction

There is no physical withdrawal from flakka but the psychological repercussions of using the drug will linger for a long time. There is very little information about available treatment for a flakka addiction. Not much is known about what alpha-PVP does to the brain and the body since there is yet to be thorough research compiled on this new substance. Of course, as with any other substance addiction problem, what spurred the individual towards drug seeking behavior will have to be analyzed with a psychological approach. Since using the drug will deprive the brain of the normal dopamine function, cessation from alpha-PVP may result in severe depression and suicidal ideations. Addicts being treated for flakka addiction may require a high level of care for an extended period of time. As cognition returns in such a patient, the results of their bizarre behavior while under the influence will come to light. Often they will be unable to recall what happened while experiencing such a powerful high. Learning of their disturbing actions while they were using flakka may also be unsettling to them. These addicts will be very sick individuals and much attention for them will be a necessity in treating their disease.

Flakka Detox: What To Expect

Because Flakka works directly with the brain and nervous system, recovery often works in a two-tier approach: treatment for the addiction and alleviating the lasting effects as much as possible. Flakka’s physical ramifications during detoxification complicate recovery because most rehab centers do not offer medical support for health issues outside of addiction. Medical detoxification programs such as those offered by The Haven Detox may be ideal. Medical monitoring and treatment for the lasting physical ailments caused by Flakka use are available at The Haven Detox.
