When in need of Bath Salts Detox our Treatment can Help

Treating Bath Salts use and addiction has been a challenge because up until recently healthcare professionals did not understand their addictive properties. As a result, people desperately in need of bath salts detox treatment have been left unaided.

What are Bath Salts?

Although the name sounds nontoxic, in truth the combination of ingredients, MDPV (methylenedioxypyrovalerone), methylone and mephedrone make bath salts one of the most difficult drugs to control.

The Synthetic Drug Abuse Prevention Act (July 2012) made using the drug and possession illegal. Manufacturers of the drug fix labels such as “not for human consumption,” “phone screen cleaner,” “plant food,” “bath salts,” and “jewelry cleaner” to prevent misuse.

Physical and Psychological Addiction

Bath salts present a potential for dependency both physically and psychologically. The National Institute on Drug Abuse, as well as poison control centers and medical professionals have witnessed a significant increase in the number of people suffering from the drugs side effects and caution to its toxic abilities. Healthcare professionals recommend a medical drug detox treatment as the first step in overcoming bath salts misuse or addiction.
