Ketamine Detox

Before ketamine detox can begin, it is important to understand the effects and risks associated with the drug.

Properties

Ketamine is a powerful anesthetic that is used on humans and animals. It is often billed as a “horse-tranquilizer” in newspaper headlines. It is usually in the form of a grainy white powder, although it can come in a liquid or tablet form.
Users claim it makes them feel very relaxed, giving a feeling that they are floating away. Some users feel incapable of moving, sometimes feeling detached from their body, similar to a near-death experience. It can also have hallucinogenic effects, changing how users see and hear things.

Risks

There are many risks associated with taking ketamine. These can include:

  • Injuries – ketamine use dulls the sensation of pain. This can lead to users injuring themselves and not knowing how.
  • Unconsciousness – the effects of ketamine can slow the user’s heart-rate and breathing, which results in loss of consciousness. This risk is increased when mixed with alcohol or other drugs.
  • Bladder problems – ketamine use can create bladder problems, which can make it very painful to urinate.
  • Mental health – Regular ketamine use can exacerbate existing mental health problems and can cause feelings of confusion, panic attacks and depression
