Detroit Flakka Drug Rehab
Detroit flakka drug rehab centers is dedicated to ridding addicts of their strong dependence on the drug. Flakka is a highly addictive synthetic stimulant drug that is also known as alpha-PVP (?-pyrrolidinopentiophenone). It was originally developed as a synthetic cathinone stimulant in the 1960s, which produces amphetamine-like effects.
Alpha-PVP is often the active ingredient in recreational drugs commonly sold as bath salts. Bath salts and flakka are both synthetic cathinone drugs that have a chemically similar composition and they both cause similar effects on users.
Flakka can be smoked, injected, snorted, or swallowed. Some people also vaporize the substance in an e-cigarette and inhale the vapors, which can speed up the rate at which the drug reaches the brain.
Effects of Flakka
Flakka is a stimulant that acts directly on the central nervous system. The drug triggers the brain to release a flood of dopamine into the system and then blocks the brain's reuptake system.
Using the drug can raise the body temperature up to 106 degrees and cause a state of excited delirium. Many users may experience profound paranoia and hallucinations when under the influence of the drug. It's also common for users to feel as though they're invincible, often displaying super-human strength after using flakka.
There are plenty of reports of users stripping off their clothing and running around wildly, displaying bizarre or extremely violent behavior. It can often take four or five police officers to restrain an affected user. Once the person is restrained, if they don't receive medical attention immediately, the effects of the drug can result in death.
The effects of the drug can last for three to four hours, but some users may still be displaying lingering effects for several days after the last use. The drug has been directly linked to a number of fatalities due to violent psychotic behavior or drug-induced suicide, as well as a spate of overdose deaths.
