What Are the Symptoms of Substance Abuse?

Substance abuse is not always easy to spot. Many factors contribute to and complicate substance abuse, such as genetics, personal and family history, and current situation, but some common signs to watch for are:

  • Compulsive feeling that you have to use the substance regularly
  • Intense urges for the substance make it hard to think
  • Needing more of the substance to achieve the same effect
  • Failing to complete work or personal activities because of your substance use
  • Self-destructive or reckless behavior
  • Continuing to use the substance even though you recognize the problems it is causing
  • Withdrawal symptoms when you stop using the substance
  • Taking more of the substance than you initially intended
  • Hoarding the substance
  • Spending money on the substance even when you can’t afford it

Why Consider Ketamine for Addiction Treatment?

Over the past 50 years, ketamine has gone from a powerful anesthetic to a prominent alternative treatment option for substance abuse. What was once used as a sedative on the battlefield has become an invaluable resource for various physical and mental issues, known both for its transformative power and fast results.

Traditional medications like antidepressants and rehab can take months to start working if they ever do. Ketamine therapy, on the other hand, offers patients relief quickly, with some individuals reporting relief within a few hours of their first infusion session.

How Does Ketamine Work for Addiction Treatment?

While there is still much to be understood about how ketamine works on the brain exactly, research has focused on ketamine’s effect on glutamate. It’s a neurotransmitter associated with memory, learning, and mood regulation found throughout the central nervous system.

Most current research shows ketamine has an excitatory effect on glutamate. The heightened glutamate activity allows new pathways to form. These new formations correlate with reduced stress, an increased ability to process information, and improved mood regulation.

Many researchers consider that the positive effects of many antidepressants may be a result of glutamate regulation, although less directly than ketamine. Because of this indirect process, SSRIs and tricyclic antidepressants often take weeks to start improving symptoms of substance abuse, if they do at all. Ketamine often produces results and relief from substance abuse symptoms during the first session.
