As Dallas youth gets high in the club area residents feel the desperate need for club drug rehab.
Club drugs include MDMA (ecstasy), GHB and its analogs, ketamine, LSD, and Rohypnol; the hallucinogen PCP; and several prescription painkillers are being abused in Dallas. Various criminal groups transport club drugs into Dallas, Texas via private vehicles, commercial aircraft, couriers on foot (crossing the U.S.-Mexico border), and package delivery services. An immediate solution to the problem is needed here and club drug rehab may be the answer.
Club drugs consist of illicit drugs that are commonly diverted and used at dance clubs and raves. These drugs are increasingly being used in suburban and rural areas throughout Dallas. Club drugs are a major concern among law enforcement and health professionals in
Throughout the 1990s high energy, all-night dances known as raves, which feature techno music and flashing laser lights, increased in popularity among teens and young adults. Raves typically occur in permanent dance clubs or temporary weekend event sites set up in abandoned warehouses, open fields, empty buildings, or civic centers. MDMA is one of the most popular drugs distributed at raves. Rave managers often sell water, pacifiers, and glow sticks at rave parties. "Ravers" require water to offset dehydration caused by MDMA abuse; use pacifiers to avoid grinding their teeth--a common side effect of MDMA abuse; and wave glow sticks in front of their eyes because MDMA stimulates light perception. As teen club drug abuse continues to rise, club drug rehab is needed in Dallas to battle this plague amongst our youth.
Another club drug that is prevelant in Dallas is Rohypnol (flunitrazepam), also called roofies, rophies, Roche, and the forget-me pill, belongs to a class of drugs known as benzodiazepines, which also includes Valium, Klonopin, Halcion, Xanax, and Versed. Rohypnol is odorless, tasteless, and dissolves completely in liquid. It produces sedative-hypnotic effects, including muscle relaxation and amnesia, and can cause physiological and psychological dependence. Rohypnol often is used in the commission of drug-facilitated sexual assault because of its sedative properties. The effects of Rohypnol can impair or incapacitate a victim for 8 to 12 hours, and are exacerbated by the use of alcohol. As the violence associated with the use of this drug increases so does the need for effective club drug rehab.
LSD, also known as acid, boomers, and yellow sunshine, is a hallucinogen that induces abnormalities in sensory perceptions. The effects of LSD are unpredictable depending upon the amount taken, the environment in which it is abused, and the abuser\s personality, mood, and expectations. Abusers may feel the immediate effects for up to 12 hours. The physical effects include dilated pupils, higher body temperature, increased heart rate and blood pressure, sweating, loss of appetite, nausea, numbness, weakness, insomnia, dry mouth, and tremors. Although LSD is less of a threat to the area the need for club drug rehab remains a high priority.
