Drugs and Alcohol Addiction is a universal problem. There are several ways to overcome it.
Ketamine Addiction

Ketamine is an anesthetic with hallucinogenic and painkilling properties. It has the ability to separate perception from sensation. This drug is mainly found in veterinary use. Its painkilling character affects people in different ways.



Ketamine has structural relation to PCP or Angel Dust. Though the drug is occasionally administered to people, it is more commonly used for pet surgery. Also known as 'special K' or 'vitamin K,' Ketamine can cause hallucinations. Users will be completely separated from their physical bodies and its limitations.

The drug usually comes in the form of a white powder. It is prepared by evaporating the liquid from the legitimate pharmaceutical product and pulverizing the residue into a powder. All of the ketamine abused has been diverted from licit sources. Theft of veterinary clinics is the most frequently reported source of illicit ketamine.

Ketamine is commonly snorted by abusers. Intra-muscular injection is also a widely used method. Injected Ketamine takes 1-5 minutes and snorted ketamine takes 5-15 minutes to take effect.

Effects of Ketamine

Ketamine can dull the receptors in the brain and produce a numbing effect. Ketamine can cause both psychological and physical addiction. Regular users quickly develop a tolerance to the drugs action. Prolonged use of the drug can result in problems including amnesia, impaired motor function, delirium, and respiratory problems that can be fatal. Ketamine can cause distractions in consciousness, neuroses or other mental problems.

Symptoms of Ketamine Addiction

Symptoms of Ketamine addiction include hallucinations, nausea, loss of memory, and a loss in sense of time and identity. Addicts often undergo out of body experiences due to the effect of Ketamine. Increased heart rate, paralyzed feeling, numbness, impaired attention, delirium, and high blood pressure are some other common symptoms of Ketamine addiction.

Treatment

The selection of treatment program for recovery and rehabilitation from Ketamine addiction depends on the severity of addiction and some other factors. The available treatment programs range from certified addiction counseling to treatment at a rehabilitation center.
