DMT Withdrawal

What's on this page

    DMT withdrawal is not a physical phenomenon and exists entirely psychologically, wherein the user becomes confused or angered by actual reality because of prolonged exposure to DMT hallucinations and seeks the drug for the purpose of repeated escape.

    DMT is a hallucinogenic chemical that is naturally occurring and falls under the tryptamine family. Upon consumption, the drug’s effects are short-lasting and drastic, taking the user on an intense psychedelic trip. It is commonly smoked or insufflated and produces a dramatic and incredibly powerful experience, many times provoking the sensation of entering a different world or communication with alien-like beings. DMT is not typically considered addictive and produces no physical withdrawal. However, tolerance may develop with continued use and DMT does have a potential for addiction in some cases.

    Those who do become addicted to DMT usually increase their dosage with time. They may become accustomed to the fantasy world the substance produces and have difficulty re-entering reality. In addition, its effects may encourage risk-taking behavior, which can lead to the use of other mind-altering substances. Using this extremely potent substance on a regular basis for extended periods of time has the potential to cause brain damage.

    DMT can warp one’s perception of the world with long-term use and therapy may be needed to discern between reality and delusion. Anti-psychotics or anxiolytics may be applied in these cases to calm a mind that has been over-stimulated or is in shock from DMT. Narcotics Anonymous would be an appropriate support group to attend for a DMT addict as it is very inclusive, allowing drug addicts of any type to attend, including those addicted to drugs as peculiar and atypical as DMT.
