Inhalants Withdrawal and Detox
These products are dangerous because they contain substances that alter the mind after inhaling. People use these products to achieve a “high” even though they are not typically referenced as drugs because they are not meant to produce psychoactive effects. When these products are misused specifically to alter the mind, they are referenced as inhalants. Younger kids and teens are the ones who misuse inhalants at higher frequencies when compared to their older peers.
People use inhalants to achieve a “high” because of inhalants’ ability to slow down body functions. When inhalants are combined with depressants such as tranquilizers or alcohol, the effect can be lethal. Some patients can even overdose on small amounts of inhalants when mixing them with alcohol. In addition, inhalants can impair people’s decision-making skills. When inhalants are combined with mind-altering substances, people are at higher risk for making dangerous and even life-threatening decisions because their inhibitions have been lowered.
