The perception or experience of pain, emotion, learning, memory, and reaction to the environment are all regulated by glutamate. The hallucinogen and dissociative substance phencyclidine alters the brain’s glutamate levels, causing hallucinations.
Meth began as a way to keep troops in Germany, America, and Britain awake and ready for combat day and night during World War II. This process was repeated during the Vietnam War also. Since then, this drug has been administered in some form to treat allergies and colds. All amphetamines were categorized as Schedule II restricted narcotics by the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (USDEA) in 1971 due to the risk of misuse, dependency, and addiction.
The most strictly regulated group of pharmaceuticals, Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act, includes LSD. The psychedelic hallucinogen lysergic acid diethylamide, also known as “Acid” or LSD, alters perception, sense of time and space, and mood.
Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), a psychoactive substance that elevates serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine levels, is also known as ecstasy and molly. Many people interpret it as euphoric sensations and a rise in confidence.

How Does The Brain Work?
The brain is made up of billions of neurons, which are arranged into circuits and networks. Every neuron functions as a switch to manage the information flow. A neuron will fire and transmit its own signal to the other neurons in the circuit if it gets enough signals from the other neurons to which it is linked. This is why the brain is frequently compared to an extremely sophisticated and intricate computer.

Ambien belongs to the Sedative-Hypnotics drug subclass. Ambien works by activating the neurotransmitter GABA (CNS) to slow down the brain and central nervous system. Although used to treat insomnia, Ambien is only meant to be taken temporarily. Long term use can cause Ambien addiction.
The class of medications known as amphetamines includes the central nervous system stimulant Adderall (the commercial name for dextroamphetamine-amphetamine). With a doctor’s prescription, it is lawful in the US and was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1996. Read on to learn more about adderall addiction and how we can help you.
A brain condition known as wet brain, also known as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (WKS), is linked to both the acute and chronic stages of thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency. Thiamine depletion is a typical side effect of chronic heavy drinking and is evident in those with inadequate nutrition. Early detection is key to reversing the symptoms, but if wet brain is not treated, it can result in permanent disorientation, poor motor coordination, and even hallucinations.
