Ayahuasca is a prepared mixture of boiled banisteriopsis caapi vine. As well as the leaves from chacruna or chaliponga shrubs. Simmering this recipe produces a potent hallucinogenic substance called N, N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT). The substance can cause a chemical reaction to the blood barrier in the brain. This produce a chemical reaction that produces psychoactive effects.
The concoction usually made for shamanistic ceremonies in ayahuasca at the Amazon. Today, the drug can help people with drug and alcohol addiction.
The non-traditional use of the plant started during the late 20th. It generated a large number of tourists in the Amazon. The trend generated scientific research for the therapeutic properties of ayahuasca. This includes the potential benefit of the plant on the brain. Advocates claimed that the experience is life-changing. One popular claim states that the drug can cure people out of their addiction problems
Ayahuasca contains DMT, a psychoactive drug and under a schedule 1 controlled substance in the United States. Most countries considered the drug illegal. These countries prohibit the use of the drug to treat addiction.
Religious groups in several countries petitioned and won the right to use the drug. The group use the ground for religious freedom. But, Peru offers the plant as a legal drug treat alcohol and drug addiction.
Observation suggested that the drug can produce positive effects for substance abuse problems. A study shows that patients who undergo four-day treatment improved their addiction management. But the works is at its early stage.
Ayahuasca stimulates a “visionary state of consciousness.” After taking the plant, the person goes through hallucinations and rapid thinking. The drug also rouses the multi-sensory experience of the person.
Most people will experience cleansing at some stage. A person can either experience severe vomiting or diarrhea. Shamans believed that cleansing during the ritual is important for the ritual. They considered the purging spiritual cleansing.
Furthermore, the drug opens the experience of all emotions both positive and negative. Ayahuasca seized all sensation in the body. Several people claimed that their movements become heavy. Even when the drug creates powerful hallucinations, it does not weaken the awareness. People still remains alerted of their environment.
The treatment claimed that the intense experience enables the psychological growth. The sense of well-being increases under the influence of ayahuasca. It brings the mind to surface from the unconscious. The purging experience usually associated with the toxins built up in the body. As well as years of negative energy.
The experience associated with addiction treatment includes:
|Ayahuasca Experience Time|
|Onset||20 – 60 mins|
|Peak||30 – 45 mins|
|Plateau||1 – 2 hrs|
|Weakening effects||1 – 2 hrs|
|After Effects||1 – 8 hrs|
|Total Duration||4 – 8 hrs|
Studies for the health benefits of the plant are still in its early stages. Psychologists warn people to take caution when taking the drug.

Research studies on addiction treatment have shown that some alcohol and substance addiction treatment and follow-up procedures are more successful than others. At Detox of South Florida, we emphasize on using the best approaches in alcohol or drug detox.
Our goal is to ensure that all our patients regain their physical and mental states of health. Our treatment is therefore tailored to address each patient’s unique conditions. The treatment involves a combination of detoxification procedures such as opiate detox, alcohol detox, and heroin detox, just to mention a few, with other intervention procedures such as group and individual therapy, relapse prevention education, after-care planning, and in-house completion programs aimed at ensuring long-term sobriety and prevention of relapses.
Every patient has his or her unique type and level of addiction which is why the treatment period will normally vary from one individual to another. While some patients go through a 30-day rehab program, others will require a 60-day or 90-day program to recover from alcohol or drug addiction. The time it takes to recover will depend on the assessment report provided by the assigned medical professional who evaluates your case.
As the best rehab in Florida, we believe a relapse should not be viewed as a failure but rather as a sign to help you get back on track by making necessary adjustments to your treatment.
Our rates generally depend on the services provided. The overall cost will be determined by factors such as professional treatment fees, facilities, food, and utilities.
Unlike other addiction treatment centers across the country, at Detox of South Florida, we take your treatment and recovery process very seriously. Your treatment against addiction is a comprehensive process that may be affected by unwarranted interruptions. All visitations must, therefore, be approved well in advance by the treating therapist. We do this to ensure that your safety, focus on recovery, and stability are maintained at all times. The only visitors allowed are significant members of your family and close friends.
We strive to give each of our clients a positive and meaningful experience as we journey with them towards recovery. Read personal reviews from patients whose lives have changed after successfully graduating from our treatment program.Call Us (863) 623-4923
