Club or party drugs can become a significant concern for many users and addiction can affect people from all walks of life. Sydney Detox and Rehab is here to you every step of the way in your recovery journey.

What are club drugs?

Club drugs or party drugs are illicit drugs typically associated with clubbing, raving and party scenes. They are usually in pill or powder form and used to enhance the party experience.

The most prevalent are:  Ecstasy (MDMA), ketamine and GHB. Each can cause serious or fatal side effects, including psychosis, seizures, coma and cardiovascular failure.

What is addiction?

Addiction is a complex issue that alters the brain in a variety of ways depending on the drug of choice. Addicts develop a physical dependence on and tolerance to their drug(s) of choice, meaning that they need more and more of the drug to get the same effect and will experience withdrawal symptoms when they try and stop using. Despite negative consequences on health, relationships, finance and work, the addict will continue using.

More and more of the drug is needed to get the same effect and when the drug is stopped, the user will experience uncomfortable symptoms, know as withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal symptoms are unpleasant and can range from mild to severe. Attending a residential medically supervised detox ensures that your symptoms are monitored by health professionals, decreasing the risk of medical complications and relapse.
