From Date Rape to Addiction
What You Need to Know About GHB
GHB first gained public notoriety as a date rape drug used by sexual predators to take advantage of unsuspecting victims. In lower doses, GHB is similar in effect to ketamine and alcohol and therefore became widely abused in clubs and raves. Sedative drugs like GHB are especially dangerous as they cause the user to “black out” or forget large spans of time as they are in a trance-like state. It’s during these blackouts that many GHB addicts face the worst consequences including acts of violence or sexual abuse. Signs of GHB addiction include:
- Impaired Coordination
- Dry Mouth
- Nausea or Vomiting
- Slurred Speech
- Suicide or Suicidal Thoughts
- Cognitive Impairment
- Sleeping for Extended Periods of Time
