Many people believe the nation’s real drug problem to be our young people’s use and abuse of chemical substances for mind expanding experiments. Less well known are the promising results achieved in rehabilitating young drug addicts by nutritional therapy. In many cases juvenile drug abusers have been helped to break their habits and return to normal living once their internal chemical balance has been restored through diet and vitamin supplementation.
Nutritional improvement and megavitamin therapy with heavy doses of niacin and ascorbic acid has been reported to be particularly effective in combating LSD psychoses. The combination dramatically reduces postintoxication reactions and helps to bring addicts off their trips more easily. Maintenance on niacin therapy has effectively discouraged repeated abuses, particularly with those young addicts who have other nutritionally related disorders, such as hypoglycemia, allergies, and vitamin deficiencies. Such conditions are prevalent, especially if the drug abuser has been on the streets for any period of time.
A drug abuse prevention clinic in Arizona has adopted megavitamin therpy, using heavy doses of niacin and vitamin C to combat drug wipeout syndrome, a psychotic syndrome afflicting many who have taken legal and illegal drugs singly or in combination, with hallucinogenic effects.
The “drug wipeout” experience is a perceptual distortion, the feeling of being “stoned all the time.” Drug wipeout afflicts at least several million present or former drug users, according to the Do It Now Foundation, a national organization involved with drug education. They believe this condition to be almost identical to borderline or early schizophrenia and a deranged body metabolism to be at fault.
