Users of hallucinogens and dissociative drugs are often drawn in by the promise of a relaxed, vivid dream-like state. However, the truth is that these drugs often leave the user unable to differentiate between fantasy and reality, disrupting their ability to think and communicate and leading to intense feelings of panic and paranoia. An array of physical effects, in the worst-case scenario, can be fatal. Clinicians must be prepared to address the psychiatric effects of hallucinogen drug use as well as addiction treatment.
