Psychosis is a mental condition marked by hallucinations and delusions that causes a disconnection from reality. Hallucinations are sensory distortions that occur without the presence of an actual external stimulus. They might be aural, olfactory, visual, or related to any other sensory modality. A delusion is a mistaken perception of reality that an individual clings to despite the availability of opposing evidence. As per the National Alliance on Mental Illness, approximately 3 out of every 100 people may experience a psychotic episode at a certain point in their lives (NAMI).
Psychotic symptoms can arise in the context of a variety of mental health conditions as well as substance abuse. Psychotic episodes can occur in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Psychosis can also be linked with alcohol or drug abuse in some cases. LSD, peyote, PCP, and magic mushrooms may be the first drugs that spring to mind when thinking of hallucinogenic drugs. While these medicines may cause radically altered frames of consciousness as well as certain psychotic symptoms on a regular basis, drug-induced psychosis can be caused by a variety of other substances when taken over a long length of time and in big enough doses.
In some circumstances, psychosis is caused by the withdrawal from a substance rather than the main intoxication. Some types of substance abuse may also increase the likelihood of developing schizophrenia in people who are predisposed to it. A higher psychotic response to certain substances, such as LSD, may be linked to having a hereditary predisposition for schizophrenia development.
In a study of first-episode psychosis patients brought to the hospital, 74 percent had been identified with a substance use disorder (SUD) at a certain point in their lives, and 62 percent fit the criteria for SUD at the onset of the psychotic episode. These types of studies highlight the link between substance addiction and psychosis. When substance abuse or withdrawal causes psychotic symptoms, crisis intervention techniques and medical detox may be required.
