GHB Addiction

GHB abuse, over time, leads to both physical AND psychological addiction. Those two addictions combine to form a vice like grip over the life of the user – causing difficult withdrawal symptoms for those who attempt to quit. Some of those withdrawal symptoms are:

  • Insomnia
  • Restlessness
  • Anxiety
  • Sweating
  • Chest pain and tightness
  • Muscle and bone aches

GHB has been used as a general anesthetic in the 1960s

GHB is a Central Nervous System depressant used as an intoxicant. It has many street names, including “Georgia Home Boy” and “Liquid Ecstasy”.

The drug has been identified as a date rape drug.

If you or a loved one is struggling with abuse of GHB, AToN Center’s San Diego rehab offers a multitude of programs that can help you, including our 12 Step and Non-12 Step rehab programs.
