There are a number of psychoactive substances or toxins that can cause psychotic reactions.
Drugs that can cause psychosis include: cocaine, alcohol, marijuana, amphetamines, inhalants, opioids, hallucinogens and sedative-hypnotics including medicines that can be used to treat anxiety.
Psychosis in this context is characterised by strange illogical beliefs like delusions, or unusual experiences like hallucinations.
By calling our counselling team on 0203 326 9160. We will recommend one of our team who specialises in Drug-Induced Psychosis.
An experienced clinician is required to help supervise recovery as it is important to know when a psychosis has become so serious, that an in-patient stay may be necessary, or is skilful in preventing this outcome.
Treatment starts with an initial meeting, in which you will chat with one of our Clinicians. If you decide that you are comfortable with them that you can speak with them easily, you will start to work with them on your plan for recovery.
Calls to us are completely confidential.
Drug Induced Psychosis can be linked to aggression and violence and so needs to be handled with great care and sensitivity. Giving up drugs is always difficult and complicated when psychosis is involved on top. Anti-psychotic treatments need to be urgently considered, and so a collaborative approach is essential with those who can prescribe as well as offer support to the frightened victim.
