Texas Drug Rehabs bathsalts

Bath Salts in Texas


This sounds like scare tactics, but if you take the time to research these so called "bath salts" and study the outcomes of those who have been uninformed and have taken this designer drug, you will find that they regret that they believed the internet lies that are touting Bath Salts as a legal form of speed.

In the week preceding July 4th, 2011, out help line received more calls from loved ones, most parents, and young people, all male, that are dealing with the after-effects of this poison.

In all of the calls we have had regarding this drug, we have yet to have one person say that they experienced the euphoria that they were expecting. In fact, every call is heartbreaking because the victims that have taken Bath Salts are stating that they are having extreme anxiety attacks, paranoia, and feeling that they are loosing their minds.

The parents are besides themselves and worrying if their son will ever be normal again.

Hopefully, some inquiring young people that are exploring their options to take this drug or, heaven forbid, give it to someone else, will listen to our advice. We have over 35 years of experience in the drug rehab and prevention field and we have never encountered any "legal" drug with such universally negative effects. Please call us at 888-781-7060 and we will go over some of the stories that we are hearing and/or we can put you in touch with families and their sons that are in the midst of tryoing to recover from their mistake.

These bath salts contain mephedrone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone. Methylenedioxypyrovalerone is referred to as MDPV, which has a documented history of causing paranoia, rapid heart beats, hallucinations and sucidal thoughts. This information alone should be enough to get you to think twice about whether the internet propoganda is the truth or are there people selling this drug that are the lowest of all drug-pushers...those that enjoy huring others.

You will find Bath Salts being marketed as plant food or simply as bath salts. If you read further on the sites that are selling this as a drug, you will find them discrediting anyone that reports the truth about this poison.

Most of our inquiries are coming from neighboring states, Alabama and Louisiana seem to have word-of-mouth talk about this being a legal way to have a great high. Believe us when we tell you that we know of no other drug that can cause such devestating mental aberation than Bath Salts and it doesn't take multiple doses, it wll happen immediately and, at this point, we have had few people recover from their mental torment.

It is reported in the news that one man in the South, who was very familiar with taking drugs, took some bath salts and the consequences of the hallucinations were so extreme that it drove him to slash his face with a knife. There are also reports of suicide from those that couldn't live with their destructive thoughts.

Louisiana has banned the sale of the psychoactive chemicals that are in bath salts. This action has caused a steep reduction of inquires to their Poison Control Center from people suffering from the effects of this drug.

Bath salts are a new designer drug and the calls reporting these terrorizing effects started coming into Louisiana in October of 2010. 48 other states have reported at least one call associated with Bath Salts.

You can buy Bath Salts at your corner stores for approximately $20 to $25 a dose. They come in packets under the names of "White Lightning". "Ivory Wave", and "Hurricane Charlie". These are the names that we know at this time, but you shouldn't buy or take anything that is being promoted as Bath Salts unless it is a legitamate salt to add to your bath water...even then I would be cautious!

It is reported that nearly twenty people have been admitted into Intensive Care Units in Louisiana so far in 2011.

The Washington Post reported in Jan., 2011 the following:

"From the Deep South to California, emergency calls are being reported over exposure to the stimulants the powders often contain: mephedrone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone, also known as MDPV."

NBC reported that the DEA busted a distrubtor of Bath Salts in New York in June, 2011, so the authorities are looking into ways that they can arrest anyone selling this drug, but without laws making Bath Salts illegal, there is little that can be done other than getting the message out to stay way from this insanity making drug!

You can look up this story and many other on the web. You will also find lies about how it will give you a high like meth and cocaine. Don't believe everything you read on the internet...This story is the truth because our only motivation is to save you from irreparable harm.

If you are suffering from the effects of this drug, please call us and we will tell you what you can do to get this drug out of your body and mind.

GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas—A Galveston man hopes to get a legal cocaine substitute banned after it reportedly led to his son's suicide.

Joey Baldwin, of Santa Fe, killed himself and blamed a synthetic substance called "bath salts" in his suicide note. He was found by his father after experimenting with the legal product, which is being compared to cocaine.
His father, James Baldwin, still fights back tears as he shares the pain of losing his son.

"If you're doing the stuff, stop it," said Baldwin. "If you haven't done it, don't. That's all I can say about that bath salts. It's bad. It killed my boy." Read the rest of this story at this link to the KHOU Story.

There are 10 to 12 structurally different chemicals that can have the same effects as amphetamines. Mephedrone has been around since the 1920, Winter said.

"Then it resurfaced for the first time, as far as we can find, around 2003," Winter said. "Then it exploded."

Bath salts was the fourth most widely used recreational drug in the United Kingdom before it was outlawed in 2010, Winter said. Bath salts took a while to catch on the United States, he said.

People take bath salts because of the belief it could increase self-confidence, making them more sociable. It's just like speed, Winter said.

The effects of bath salts can lead to a body temperature as high as 108 degrees. Some people have such severe effects they grind their teeth down by clenching their jaws, Winter said.

An elevated heart rate, if elevated long enough, could lead to seizures, Winter said.

"The cardiovascular system takes its biggest hit," Winter said. "A heart rate greater than 140 beats per minute is setting yourself up for a heart attack."

During exercise, the heart can reach that rate, but the beats decline with rest.

"With (bath salts) it could be up for hours and hours," Winter said. "When an adult has a heart rate that high, part of your blood supply to the heart is ejected from the ventricle. It's not supplying oxygenated blood, because it doesn't have enough time to completely fill things."

"A good analogy is: How would you feel after drinking an entire pot of coffee?" Winter said. Mark Winter is a specialist in poison information. All of can remember being teenagers and beliveing that nothing could hurt us... don't be stupid and take that attitude about BATH SALTS!!

Please notice that Bath Salts in Texas is illegal as of Aug. 2011

July 24, 2013... We got a call from a parent in New York that heard that we were somewhat the experts in this field. Their 22 year old son had used Bath Salts for a little over a month.

The family doesn't have health insurance and even though the young man is an extreme danger to himself and others, the hospitals are only willing to keep him for one day and then he is relased. He is totally delusional and need longterm, residential treatment, but the state isn't providing that care unless that young man can hold it together well enough to be in a setting with others.

This is a fellow that doesn't even know that he is on planet earth! So what is a family to do? We have been working with them to find a solution, but we are getting road-blocks with every effort.

Please, do your best to be sure your loved ones are covered under good health insurance, in case their "recreational" use of drugs turns to Bath Salts and they become psychotic.

We will continue to work with this family, but the outlook isn't positive as of July 25, 2013.
