Club Drug Abuse

“The experiences drugs induce are as far removed from Reality as is a mirage, from water. No matter how much you pursue the mirage, you will never quench your thirst, and the search for Truth through drugs must end in disillusionment.” – Meher Baba

What are Club Drugs?

Club drugs are a group of psychoactive drugs. These drugs will act on the central nervous system and change mood, behavior, and awareness. Young adults commonly use club drugs at public venues such as concerts, nightclubs, and bars. However, many people may not realize what drugs are considered a “club drug” because of the ever-changing nicknames.
The most used club drugs:

  • MDMA (Methylenedioxymethamphetamine), also known as Skittles or Scooby Snacks.
  • Rohypnol, also known as Roofies.
  • LSD (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide), also known as dots or mellow yellow.
  • Ketamine, also known as kit kat or purple.

Club drugs will have different symptoms depending on the person, the specific drug taken if any ingredients are different, and the amount they have consumed. The following symptoms tend to appear anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes after the drug has been in the body.

  • Changes in heart rate.
  • Changes in blood pressure.
  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Loss of muscle control.
  • Extreme feelings of thirst

*Extreme symptoms can include seizures and coma.

Hallucinogens will cause a person to lose the ability to distinguish what is happening. They will lose touch with what is real and what is not because of the drugs in their system. It affects their thoughts, feelings and may even cause them to act out violently because of the fabrication of danger around themselves. It is also shown that a person under the influence of hallucinogens may experience periods that they will not remember.

Club drugs are very unpredictable because they may contain many ingredients that the user is not aware of. In addition, stimulants can make people feel excited. The stimulation can cause the user to feel like they are unafraid or unstoppable. They feel like they can do anything and everything.

Depressants are the complete opposite and tend to slow people down. They will, unfortunately, experience slower reactions and tend to lose the ability to physically and mentally react to things that are happening to them or around them.

Club Drug Issues in the United States

The director of the National Institute of Drug Abuse reported an increase in the use of club drugs when it came to people who were older than 12 years of age. For example, in 1999, the reported use of club drugs was 5.1 million, and in 2000, the number reported went up to 6.5 million.

In a study by Arria, A.M., G.S. Yacoubian, E. Fost, and E.D. Wish regarding ecstasy (a popular club drug) use in raves, it was found that 89% of rave attendees reported using ecstasy at least once, and nearly 50% reported use within the past month. This study also found that current ecstasy users were more likely than nonusers and past users to have smoked marijuana and snorted powder cocaine within the past 12 months.

We Want to Address the Seriousness of the Club Drugs Effects on Individuals

Many people tend to say that they can put the substance down with ease, but unfortunately, that is not the case for many people. Many individuals have started to feel an obligation to the substance even when they are voicing something different. When it comes to substance abuse, many people do not begin to recognize the issue with the substance until they are already experiencing consequences involving their personal life and relationships around them.
