Mescaline Addiction Treatment

Sections: What is Mescaline | Is it Addictive? | Effects | Signs & Symptoms | Treatment | Hope

Mescaline addiction is just one of the things we treat at Yellowstone Recovery. If you or a loved one are struggling, take a moment to read through the information below.


What Is Mescaline?

Mescaline is a hallucinogen derived from cactus plants, particularly peyote. Its effects can be achieved by chewing the bumps of the cactus, or via ingestion (e.g., when brewed as a tea).¹


Is Mescaline Addictive?

Mescaline itself does not create a physical addiction (mescaline detox doesn’t usually have physical symptoms). However, this doesn’t mean that mescaline isn’t addictive; a person can still become psychologically dependent.

How a Mescaline Addiction Starts

Even without a physical addiction, a person can build up a tolerance to mescaline. To achieve the same relaxed, happy feelings, he or she will need to use more over time. As the tolerance continues to build, the person relies more and more on mescaline to get through life.


The Psychadelic Effects of Mescaline

Common short-term effects of mescaline include the following:¹

  • Visual hallucinations
  • Distorted or confused senses
  • Spiritual feelings
  • Heightened self-awareness


Symptoms of Mescaline Addiction and Withdrawal

A person with a mescaline addiction may exhibit various red flag symptoms:

  • Problems with work and relationships
  • Denial and rationalization
  • Using more over time


Mescaline withdrawal symptoms tend to involve psychological discomforts:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Obsessing about using again (wanting the good feelings back)

Getting Help for Mescaline Addiction

If you have a mescaline addiction that is negatively affecting your life and those around you, it’s time to consider a mescaline addiction rehab program. Although it may seem like an addiction that is more psychological than physical would be easy to stop, a dependent person will often rationalize mescaline use in a way that makes it harder to quit without professional mescaline addiction treatment.

It’s easy to think that as long as you’re not physically hurt, it’s okay to use mescaline regularly. When it’s affecting your relationships and responsibilities, however, it can be just as detrimental as physical harm.
