Black Mamba is one of many new psychoactive substances available to buy from an extensive range of synthetic cathinone and cannabinoid. It can be smoked or ingested is highly dangerous, but there is little research to know the long-term damage it may bestow upon the user.

This has become a drug of choice due to its supposed low cost and accessibility. Many of these substances can even be bought online. Whilst it is legal in many places and sometimes even used as a supplement for losing weight, among other reasons, it is still a class B drug by UK standards. This ‘synthetic cannabis’ is never a wise choice because black market drugs often utilise many other substances in their products.

You never fully know what you are consuming. It is also much more potent than cannabis, which means it reacts strongly with the receptors in your brain. Some of the devastating consequences of taking this drug affect the user and others around you. Regular consumption can lead to:

  • Increased risk of violence
  • Severe mental illness
  • Seizures
  • Respiratory difficulties
  • Kidney disease
  • Hallucinations

These severe side effects can even, in some cases, lead to death

What are the Symptoms of Black Mamba Addiction

If you are unsure about the symptoms associated with Black Mamba addiction, you can learn so here. Whilst many alcohol and drug addictions mirror the same symptoms, it can be hard to pinpoint the type of addiction.

There may be some subtle similarities, but everyone reacts differently to the drug. This is because everyone has their brain chemistry.

Symptoms to be aware of in yourself or others are:

  • Thinking and talking about the substance every day
  • You feel helpless when you think about quitting
  • You may conceal the drug from friends and family, putting on a “mask”
  • You avoid social interactions
  • You may want to have friends who have the same addiction
  • You neglect your physical appearance
  • You neglect your work/school, resulting in problems in all areas
  • You ignore personal hygiene and focus only on the addiction
  • You try to get money or borrow money for your next fix

If you suffer from any of the above or know someone that does, you should reach out immediately. Drug rehabilitation is the only successful route, and you should consider our professional help.

Our friendly and dedicated team will be happy to advise you on the best steps to take, as well as offer help as an intermediary if this is needed. Any of the above symptoms may become extreme.

Black Mamba is very dangerous, so you should go through drug detox and deal with the core issues relating to your addiction to make a healthy recovery. You must consciously decide to change before your addiction causes a serious medical emergency.

Addiction can become a medical emergency, even if you feel “well” in yourself.

Drug Addiction Treatment at Ocean Recovery

Our professional and dedicated team operate from a relaxing and safe space, which focuses on the welfare of each of our patients. A dedicated plan will offer you both peace of mind and support during these difficult times.

Private drug and alcohol rehab is an excellent investment that provides you with numerous types of therapies and medical interventions, all of which contribute to long-term sobriety.

What Can We Offer You at Ocean Recovery?

A detox is the first step to recovery. This will remove the toxins from your body and gradually wean you from the substance in a safe medical setting. The dedicated medical team will bring you comfort during this time.

Withdrawal symptoms are adequately dealt with, and your drug detox will last 7 days. Once complete, you can recuperate in a warm and friendly environment before the next phase of your treatment begins.

Your welfare, including your dietary requirements and physical activity, is taken care of. This comprehensive rehab plan focuses on every aspect of your mental and physical health.

Therapies and counselling sessions are the following routes for your rehab. This is when you conquer the worries and delve into the areas of your life that may have led you to addiction.

These therapies and counselling sessions are proven methods that help relieve you of cravings and tackle deep-rooted problems, such as mental illness, childhood trauma and more.

Some of the suggested treatments are:

  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
  • Individual, group, and family therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Long-term follow-up to prevent relapse

Does Rehab Work?

Rehab gives you the tools you need to succeed long-term. Private inpatient rehab has a very high success rate, and this is largely down to the fact that you have continued support. It may be daunting to first commit to rehab and implement the tools learned.

Rehab success is dependent on your motivation to heal. However, at Ocean Recovery Centre, we seek to give all our patients professional guidance and support.

As with any addiction, detox cannot be implemented at home. This is known as ‘cold turkey’ and can lead to hospitalisation and even death. The body must be precisely weaned, and appropriate medications are given.

The withdrawal symptoms of Black Mamba may affect many areas of your body, making rehab the best choice. Our team will be by your side every step of the way. We appreciate that rehabilitation takes strength and courage and are here to support you.

If you want to change your life for the better and get healthy once again, please contact us today for more information. Your journey begins whenever you decide, and we’d love to help you succeed.
