Finding the Right Psilocybin Mushroom Rehab for You

Psilocybin Mushroom Addiction There are approximately 14,000 different species of mushrooms in the world, but only a tiny percentage of these are psychedelic. Many of these mushrooms have no effect on human biology, but some are poisonous and can be deadly if consumed. Psilocybin mushrooms, also called "magic mushrooms," are 0.2% - 0.4% psilocybin and contain trace amounts of another psychoactive chemical called psilocin. They have been used in religious rites and cultural ceremonies for thousands of years, all across the world, and may even have been featured in ancient cave art. In today's developed societies, these psychedelic fungi are used recreationally and abused by many. These "magic mushrooms" are not physically addictive like many other illicit drugs, yet individuals tend to abuse them on a regular basis to feel or to experience the trippy, psychedelic sensations that these mushrooms offer. Psilocybin and psilocin are psychoactive compounds which alter the brain's ability to absorb and interpret sensory input and put the mushroom user into a profound state of altered consciousness. A person who becomes dependent upon these mushrooms may exhibit unusual behavior, unfamiliarity with their life and experiences, and possibly paranoia. Occasionally users will experience panic, nausea, and other symptoms of a "bad trip." Because of the effects of psilocybin, a mushroom user might not be able to distinguish between hallucination and reality, and may harm themselves or others during one of these "bad trips." Are you or your loved one dependent upon these magic mushrooms? Stop the cycle of psilocybin mushroom dependency. There's a psilocybin mushroom rehab center waiting to help you.

Fast facts about psilocybin mushrooms

Knowledge is power. The more you know, the stronger you are. Below are some fast facts about psilocybin mushrooms which may help you make an informed decision about whether to enter psilocybin mushroom rehabilitation.
  • Psilocybin and psilocin are often called "psychedelic" or "psychoactive" compounds. This means that they cause hallucinations, intense euphoric sensations, blurred perception of time, foggy or unclear sensory input, and other "trippy" symptoms. Psychoactive drugs profoundly influence human cognition (attention span, memory, judgment, reasoning, decision-making, problem-solving, and language centers) and perception (the ability to sense and understand one's environment).
  • Psilocybin mushrooms grow naturally in the wild, but they are easy to cultivate at home, and many users grow their own. Both of these alternatives present their own unique problems. Without careful identification, there is a chance that someone seeking mushrooms in the wild will accidentally ingest a poisonous mushroom rather than a psychedelic one. Furthermore, it has been suggested by some counseling services that the act of personally growing and harvesting mushrooms can trigger a psychological addiction in the minds of mushroom users.

Why get help from psilocybin mushroom rehab?

These drugs don't induce addiction or physical dependence, but mild to moderate psychological dependence is possible, and this can interfere with one's lifestyle, happiness, and productivity.

What is Psilocybin/Psilocin?

  • Description of Psilocybin/Psilocin?

    Psilocybin and psilocin are two closely associated hallucinogenic compounds which have been identified in at least 75 species of mushrooms around the world. Most varieties can found in native to tropical and subtropical climates, including South America, Southeast Asia, Mexico, and certain regions of Europe and the United States. Though mushroom potency can vary, most contain .2% to .4% psilocybin, with scant traces of psilocin. Psilocybin mushrooms are often called “magic mushrooms.” In its pure form, psilocybin is a brown or white crystalline powder, or is shaped into a tablet.

    Psilocybin is a prodrug, which means that it is largely inactive in its natural state. After ingestion, the natural metabolism of the body converts psilocybin to psilocin, which is the chemical with the psychoactive properties. Psilocybin disrupts the levels of serotonin within the brain, changing the user’s perceptions, appetite, and mood. Psilocybin can be ingested, snorted, smoked or injected.

What is the Origin of Psilocybin/Psilocin?

Native Americans, particularly in Central and South America, revered hallucinogenic mushrooms as sacred ("god's flesh") and used them in religious and divinatory rites, to produce visions, to aid in treating illnesses, solving problems, and contacting the spirit world. The use of mushrooms in Native American culture was repressed after the Spanish conquest. In the mid-20th century, western researchers such as R. Gordon Wasson and Timothy Leary began to experiment with mushrooms and the psychedelic effects they created. Albert Hofmann (the Swiss scientist who is credited with discovering LSD) first identified psilocybin as the active ingredient of mushrooms in the 1950s, along with psilocin. Today, they are taken primarily for recreational use.

How is Psilocybin/Psilocin Addiction Treated?

Psilocybin is not physically addictive, but it can still develop a habitual psychological addiction in the user, and tolerance can develop over time so that increased dosages are required to achieve the desired psychedelic effects. Though limited research has been carried out concerning the long-term effects of heavy psilocybin use, some evidence indicates that abuse may cause psychosis in some individuals. Using the drug may cause mental disturbances or even trauma in others, because of the intense “mind-bending” experiences it creates, or continue to experience delusions that continue even after they have stopped using psilocybin. Specialized psychiatric help is suggested for these individuals, or for anyone with underlying mental and personality orders that have been triggered by psychedelic use.

No explicit detoxification regime is required for habitual Psilocybin users, as there are no severe withdrawal symptoms. Continue psychological support should be maintained, however, either on an Psilocybin inpatient or outpatient center basis, to help the individual avoid relapse. The most important thing is that the individual is able to admit their psychological dependency on the substance.

What is the Extent of Psilocybin/Psilocin Use?

(US Statistics)

According to a 2007 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), approximately 1.1 million people aged 12 or older reported using hallucinogens for the first time within the past 12 months. In the U.S., the U.K., and Canada, approximately 3 to 10% of people 40 and under have tried psilocybin mushrooms, with higher rates for people in the 20-30 year range. In the United States, a large yearly survey called the National Household Survey routinely inquires about the use of hallucinogens, including a question about psilocybin mushrooms. According to recent surveys, approximately 5% of US residents (10.2 million) have experimented at least once with psilocybin mushrooms.
