Are You Addicted to Mushrooms? Choose from the Top Mushroom Rehab Centers

An addiction to mushrooms is incredibly dangerous for a variety of reasons.

mushrooms addiction information

Mushrooms are often referred to as Magic Mushrooms or as Shrooms. There are many different varieties available, and they contain psychedelic properties that users enjoy. Mushrooms are a part of the hallucinogenic classification of drugs, and they contain toxic properties that can result in death.

When using Magic Mushrooms or Shrooms, the desire is always for a good trip or a good high. However, that can sometimes be difficult to achieve. That’s one of the factors that leads people to try them again and again. There are so many different types of mushrooms and they seem to all have different results when ingested. Mushrooms can be taken in a variety of different ways, but because they taste so bitter, they’re often mixed with food, taken in a capsule or made into a tea to hide the flavor of them.

If you’re addicted to mushrooms, you should be aware that you’re dabbling with a dangerous substance that can have disastrous consequences. Continuing to use mushrooms can cause you serious, irreversible side effects, even lead to poisoning and eventual death. Getting help for this type of addiction is possible by consulting one of the top mushroom rehab programs in the country to find out what you need to do.

How Addictive are Shrooms?

The addictive nature of Shrooms tends to lie in the psychological effects it produces for its users. Getting high after using Shrooms is often referred to as a “trip,” just like it is for other types of hallucinogenic drugs. When you’re using Shrooms, it’s possible that you’ve experienced all different kinds of highs, and they may alternate between being pleasant or scary. This is because it’s difficult to decipher which type of mushrooms you’re using, and the different varieties all have their own effects on the brain.

For those who use Shrooms, they soon begin to crave the sensory experience they get when they’re on a trip, and these effects can last for two to eight hours, depending on the variety that’s used, and the individual. Repeated uses generally do not result in the same sensations, which leads to using more in order to get the desired result.

Shroom Abuse: The Short Term Consequences

Even if you’re using mushrooms in smaller doses, the potential to cause yourself serious harm still exists. You could experience many different side effects, including:

  • Feelings of paranoia
  • Distortions in your sight, sounds and tastes
  • Feelings of anxiety
  • An increase in your breathing rate or heart rate
  • Feeling of being unstable
  • Feelings of fatigue

Of course, there is a very real risk in the fact that using Shrooms always has the potential to result in poisoning. Sometimes even scientists who are well trained to know the differences in the various types of mushrooms are not able to tell the poisonous ones from the non-poisonous ones. So, you can imagine how hard it can be for someone without that type of education. Many people have died because they inadvertently ingested fatal Shrooms, and this can happen after just one time of use.

Magic Mushroom Addiction Symptoms and Behaviors

As you increase your dosage of mushrooms or as you use them more frequently, you will begin to exhibit certain mushroom addiction behaviors and symptoms. Once these begin to manifest, it’s so important to get professional help so that you can stop safely. You may experience:

  • Bouts of nausea frequently
  • Flushing in the face
  • Feeling dizzy or lightheaded
  • Feeling like you’re being separated from your body
  • LSD-like effects, including having altered perceptions of reality
  • Sweating or chills with shivering

As time goes on, people will sometimes add additional drugs to Magic Mushrooms in order to magnify their effects, which can cause a host of other problems.

Is it Possible to Experience Shroom Withdrawal?

Fortunately, you can abruptly stop using Shrooms without fear of any terrible Mushroom withdrawal symptoms. However, that’s not to say that you won’t experience other types of symptoms. The reality is that this type of addiction is mostly psychological, which means that it’s quite common for users to have anxiety, depression symptoms, insomnia or cravings. You also run the risk of having flashbacks, and most of the time, these might be of bad trips you’ve experienced in the past.

If you want to try to avoid these terrible Mushroom withdrawal symptoms, therapy at a Mushroom addiction treatment center can help.
