Microdosing Versus Non-12 Step Inpatient Rehab

Microdosing Versus Non-12 Step Inpatient Rehab

Battling substance addiction is an uphill battle under any circumstances. However, for those who attempt recovery on their own or without the help of medical professionals, it can be a dicey gamble. In recent years, the nation has seen a rise in “micro dosing” which involves the use of small amounts of psychedelic drugs to improve mood. These tiny doses may only make up one-tenth or less of an average recreational dose.

For some users, microdosing is a “self-help” means to address withdrawal symptoms caused by other addictions. One of the many obvious problems with microdosing is that many users are buying illegal psychedelics in the form of LSD and mushrooms from local drug dealers. Another alarming fact is that users are essentially experimenting on themselves. As The Cut’s Simone Kitchens reports, “micro dosing is both highly unresearched and incredibly imprecise, and therefore prone to all kinds of dosage mix-ups and unintended trips.”

There have been some studies done, such as Johns Hopkins’ 2014 medical research into the controlled administration of psilocybin (“magic mushrooms”) to smokers grappling with their addiction. However, psilocybin remains a Schedule I controlled substance, cited for its “high potential for abuse” with “no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States” per DEA guidance. As a result, persons seeking to micro dose on their own must engage with illegal substances, exposing themselves to a world they may be trying to escape from while also breaking the law and risking jail time.

A safer, more practical alternative is non-12 step inpatient rehab. The term non-12 step is a way of differentiating this style of treatment from the well-known Alcoholics Anonymous “twelve step” methodology. AA’s approach has had various levels of success among those who’ve tried it, but it also bears its fair share of criticism. Many persons seeking to recover from substance abuse issues are not interested in traditional twelve-step programs’ focus on spirituality and prefer a more secular, science-based treatment option.

There are many non-12 step support groups, but successful recovery begins in a relaxed recovery center staffed by medical professionals. Trained specialists are able to provide counseling and dual-diagnosis support for persons suffering from a simultaneous mental health matter such as depression. Another unique facet of the non-12 step method is that it does not view or treat addiction as a disease but rather a condition which can be fully addressed with the right course of treatment.

In many situations, a person may have an undiagnosed condition that can exacerbate their addiction habits, obstruct recovery, and lead to relapses unless treated at the same time as the addiction issue itself. Those experimenting with microdosing run numerous risks while obtaining unpredictable results. For a real chance to truly get well and return to a healthy lifestyle, inpatient rehabilitation at a tranquil recovery center is the smartest choice one can make.
