Ketamine – “Club Drug”
Ketamine is a “club drug,” a hallucinogen, and a dissociative drug similar to PCP and nitrous oxide (laughing gas). When abused for recreational purposes, it is commonly snorted in powder form, or injected in liquid form. In recent years the drug has become popular in the club scene where teens and young adults frequently use it.
Effects of Ketamine Abuse
Ketamine abuse does not typically lead to the traditional type of physical addiction symptoms that result from the abuse of drugs such as alcohol and heroin. But because the drug impairs a user’s cognitive abilities to such an intense degree, it can lead to a desire for frequent long-term use, and that means that ending one’s addiction may not be as simple as just deciding to quit.
