Paradigm Treatment Centers Teen Bath Salts Treatment Overview:
Bath Salts are a group of man-made drugs with amphetamine-like chemical ingredients, and which teens abuse in order to obtain the stimulant high which is similar to that of cocaine. Also similar to cocaine, Bath Salts act directly on the brain and therefore are highly addictive and also put teens at high risk of overdose, as they become more tolerant of the drug, as well as more dependent upon it.
Another reason Teen Bath Salt Abuse is so risky is because when teens are abusing these drugs, they have virtually no idea what substances they’re ingesting, because the ingredients used in the substances vary widely. Moreover, even the effects teen experience can vary so widely between uses, which makes them extremely vulnerable to suffering severe negative and unintended symptoms.
These symptoms can vary widely and furthermore, because Bath Salts are a relatively new type of drug, there is relatively little knowledge about the effects they can produce. With this said, some of the known symptoms Bath Salts can cause include: increased heart rate and blood pressure; dehydration; panic attacks; hallucinations; paranoia; chest pains; and delusions.
