Dealing with a bad trip

Dealing with a bad trip

Sometimes, certain drugs can induce a ‘bad trip”. This can be either physical (eg: severe nausea or convulsions) and /or psychological. It can happen with any drug, but more commonly with LSD and Ecstasy.

NB: If at any stage you feel overwhelmed, or if you or a friend is experiencing severe physical or emotional reactions – do not hesitate to get help from a RaveSafe monitor or the paramedics.

The best way to prevent a bad trip is to follow the guidelines set out in the ‘If’ page on our website. There may however be times when a bad trip still happens.

People having bad trips can feel a number of things: confused, overwhelmed by crowds and attention, fear they are losing their minds, have hallucinations and can become paranoid. They can also become dangerously violent.

If you have to help someone, remember to stay calm, as anxiety and fear will worsen the situation.

Most people will respond to the A R R R T guidelines.

Acceptance: Try to gain the person’s trust and confidence by keeping calm. Try not to make them do anything they don’t want to do.

Reduce stimuli It is best to take the person to a quiet place, where they feel safe and comfortable, away from loud noise, crowds and bright lights. Sunglasses may help. Keep your movements slow and smooth, and don’t crowd the person – let them move freely.

Reassure the person that the drug is causing the effect, that it will go away with time and if they try to accept the feelings rather than fight them, things will look better, sooner. A positive attitude can often turn a trip around.

Rest. Make sure they are comfortable and use simple techniques for relaxation such as massage or even holding hands. If the person becomes violent or aggressive – call for help.

Talkdown. Talk constantly in a soothing tone. It may help to remind them who they are, and try discussing peaceful, pleasant topics. If they are having difficulty grounding themselves, get them to focus on your face. By getting them to think simple and happy thoughts, and creating a positive attitude, bad trips can often be turned around.

Cigarette Smoking Addiction in Teens

Cigarette Smoking Addiction in Teens

Because of advertisements and other forms of media that promote smoking, many teens think it is okay and cool to smoke. And the result is that many teens are getting addicted to nicotine and cigarettes. All over the world, smoking begins as a teenage experience. Few smokers have begun smoking as adults. In the United States, on an average day, at least 3,000 young people become regular smokers, and more than 6,000 adolescents try to smoke their first cigarette.

The outlook for regular smokers who began smoking as teenagers and continue into adulthood is grim. Research shows that people who start smoking before the age of 21 have the hardest time quitting. It is also estimated that about 30% of youth smokers who continue smoking well into adulthood would die early from a smoking-related disease. While smoking may be legal for adults, the medical costs associated with it are enormous. Many of those who suffer and die from smoking-related illnesses took up the habit in their teens.
In today’s health news, there seem to be startling new statistics regarding teen smoking.

It appears nearly one in five 13-to-15-year-old students worldwide uses some form of tobacco, according to the global youth tobacco survey started seven years ago, as a joint effort by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Students from more than 130 countries responded to questions about tobacco, including personal use, secondhand exposure and advertising. The study found that Europe and the Americas had the highest rates of cigarette smoking, at approximately 18 percent.  In all regions, the use of other tobacco products was generally more common among boys than among girls. Nearly a quarter of high school students in the US smoke cigarettes. Another 8% use smokeless tobacco.

In addition to the innate dangers faced by the smoker, there are dangerous effects of secondhand smoke to non-smokers as well. Secondhand smoke causes many serious health problems. It contributes to as many as 300,000 cases of pneumonia, bronchitis, and other respiratory infections in infants and children every year. It is also one of the risk factors in the development of childhood asthma, causing 8,000 to 26,000 new cases each year. Smoking has many health risks for everyone. However, the younger a person starts to smoke, the more problems it can cause. The tobacco industry spends about million per day to market cigarettes, and most of this marketing is targeted at kids. To stop this kind of unethical advertising, critics argue Congress should pass legislation that would give the U.S. Food and Drug Administration the authority to regulate tobacco products and marketing, as well as to ban candy-flavored cigarettes.

Combating teen smoking in America is a really serious public health issue. It is relevant as well to the problems in developing countries faced with smoking by children and adolescents. The issues on teen smoking clearly speak to policy makers, health personnel, researchers, and young people. Each group has a role to play to address the growing health problems among minors.

Cocaine addiction treatment

Cocaine addiction treatment

A cocaine addiction treatment is a step–step process.   

A cocaine addiction treatment is neither convenient nor easy. It is a very long process-in fact, winding, especially for those who don’t really get the much-needed help. What’s more, there will always be periods of withdrawal where the sufferer may feel of going back to the old ways. Cocaine can definitely affect the brain and the body, which makes it really hard to get rid of. Nevertheless, you have an option. You can go to a Florida cocaine rehab and be enrolled in a more holistic approach to healing.

The Process of Cocaine Addiction Treatment

It is very essential that the cocaine addiction treatment should cover all aspects of the sufferer. He doesn’t have to be treated emotionally alone, as cocaine can have a strong effect on the person’s body, particularly in his mind and nervous system. On the other hand, the program should not only focus on the physical aspect. He definitely needs as much support and emotional healing as he can possibly get.


The very first step for the cocaine addiction treatment is actually looking for a Florida cocaine rehab that offers a holistic program. This means that it doesn’t only have treatments and therapies for physical aspects, but for emotional, social, and intellectual aspects as well. Once you have already discovered the most ideal program for the sufferer, the very first step is then called medical detoxification.

What is medical detoxification? This is a crucial step where the patient will have to be completely unexposed to the cause of their addiction, which is cocaine. This is also commonly called withdrawal. Normally, a Florida cocaine rehab will have a supervisor or even a doctor to closely supervise and monitor the patient. After all, it’s during at this process that the urges to go back to the vice will start to kick in. It’s going to be a long fight, but if the sufferer can get through it, the rest of the program will go properly.

Physical Therapy

Cocaine can cause a lot of damage to a person’s body, and usually, this is one of the initial focus of a Florida cocaine rehab. The cocaine addiction treatment will then involve walking along the beach or the nature park, following a strict meal and exercise plan, constant meditating, or engaging in different kinds of sports.

Emotional TherapyA cocaine addiction treatment should also include emotional and intellectual healing. You will be surprised to know that the common underlying causes for the addiction are normally depression, suffering, pain, and anger-all related to the emotional aspect of the person. Cocaine, moreover, has a definite way of destroying lives and relationships. With proper emotional and intellectual therapy, a patient will be able to get hold of the reality of the problem and get the needed support, which will allow him to go through a recovery period with his loved ones.

A Florida cocaine rehab may offer one-on-one counseling, mentoring, workshops, healing sessions, and group discussions. Families are also encouraged to participate.Are you suffering from cocaine? Would you like to seek a cocaine addiction treatment? 12 Palms Recovery Center is a Florida cocaine rehab that offers not just physical healing but also emotional and intellectual therapy.

The important parts of attempting to naturally pass a drug test is that you will want to SLIGHTLY modify your diet and increase your exercise level.

Get Clean Shampoo

Get Clean Shampoo

The Get Clean Shampoo masks unwanted hair toxins such as cocaine, marijuana, THC, nicotine, ecstasy, chemical and environmental pollutants. Toxins are circulated throughout the body via the blood stream and absorbed by the hair through the environment. Wet hair, and hair treated with styling gel are especially susceptible to environmental contamination (second hand smoke). When toxins are ingested the blood feeds the hair while it is in the growth stage. As the hair is formed the toxins are trapped inside the hair follicle. During the nicotine or drug test procedure, a hair sample is clipped from the back of the head near the scalp by the examiner.

Once sent to a laboratory the hair is dissolved with organic solvents. Once in a liquid solution, the toxins are freed from within the hair follicle. An extraction is performed on the liquid and drug toxins or nicotine toxins are removed. Once the nicotine or drug metabolites are isolated a GC/MS is performed just like with urinalysis testing. The Get Clean Shampoo works by coating the hair with an organic film much like a conditioner. When the examiner removes the hair sample the shampoo bound to the hair goes with it. Once the hair is dissolved, the residual left by the shampoo is free to interact with the nicotine or drug metabolites, which had been trapped in the hair follicle, masking the toxins.

Due to revised testing standards lowering the cut-off to 0.1ng on hair tests, this product is no longer guaranteed by Spectrum Labs. Not all labs have adopted the new standards yet, but there is no way to determine what cut-off a lab will use. Product Directions:

  1. Shake the bottle well before each use.
  2. Apply Get Clean Shampoo.
  3. Massage 1/2 of the bottle into scalp and out to ends of hair. Be sure to cover all hair, especially on the back of your neck.
  4. Cover with a shower cap; continue to massage scalp periodically.
  5. Let stand in hair for 30 minutes.
  6. Repeat the above with remainder of the bottle.
  7. DO NOT RINSE shampoo out until after the hair sample has been removed.
  8. Get Clean Shampoo is effective for 4-5 hours before the bloodstream puts toxins back into the hair.

Success Tips:
If you have long hair, or thicker hair such as African-American hair, you will need more than one bottle. Product Warnings:
For External Use Only. Current testing cut-off standards of 0.1ng, effectively a “0 tolerance” level, has caused the guarantee on this product to be withdrawn. This product is not intended for use on lawfully administered drug tests and is to be used in accordance with all federal and state laws.

Cocaine found to constrict arteries in the brain

Cocaine found to constrict arteries in the brain

A new study suggests that use of cocaine causes blood vessels in the brain to became constricted, a condition associated with impaired thinking ability and memory loss.
In the study, published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, twenty-four past cocaine users were given varying doses of the drug. Images of the subjects brains, called magnetic resonanceangiography, taken before and 20 minutes after the cocaine was administered revealed vasoconstriction, or narrowing of the arteries that deliver blood to the brain, Marc Kaufman and colleagues at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts, said.
The effect was cumulative, increasing with length and intensity of cocaine use, and could heighten the risk of suffering a drug-induced stroke and the loss of memory or
learning deficits, they said.

Otherwise healthy subjects between the ages of 24 and 34 who had used cocaine a median of eight times before were either given one of two intravenous dosages of the drug or a placebo. The higher the dosage and the greater the frequency of past usage correlated with more blood vessel constriction.

Tragedy at Full Moon

Tragedy at Full Moon

Many of you saw the KCAL report on the death of Pablo Mendoza at this past Moontribe event. Their report seemed a lot more fair than reports by other stations, mainly Fox 11 here in LA. Only flaw I saw was when John Abel’s mother called desert promoters money hungry. The promoters of Dune and Full Moon Gathering are the complete opposite of that. Again, our sympathies go out to the parents of Pablo Mendoza.

As many of us know, an individual died this past weekend at Moontribe’s Full Moon Gathering. The circumstances revolving this incident are sketchy at this point, but a little is known. The individual, Pablo Mendoza, was an 18 year old student at Brooks College. He fell off a cliff and plummeted down to the rocky bottom. Rumors say that he waved “bye” when he jumped. No one knows if he was on drugs or what drugs he was on.

In the meantime, local Los Angeles TV station, KCAL 9, has gotten wind of this incident and is planning to air a slanderous news report on Thursday. (2/4/99) Our scene got plenty of bad publicity last summer due to deaths and more is on the way. The way the mass media portrays our scene in Los Angeles is ridiculous. They say that five people have died at previous Moontribe events, but I hear that this is the first death they’ve encountered. KCAL goes and calls these “Killer Raves.” Hopefully, their report along with others in the future won’t have any reprecussions in our use of outdoor venues, unlike the incident last summer at Dune IV.

Capricorn Bar Review

Capricorn Bar Review

The first in a series of parties from this first time promoters, went off pretty well. I’ve seen first time parties get pretty bad, but this one wasn’t bad at all. First thing I must give props to is the music. I mean there was some incredible trance bumping the whole night to the morning. The second is the great visuals, which took full use of all the blacklights that were set up. When I arrived in the artist district near downtown LA, I noticed the venue was some kind of gallery or sound stage. The first room you walked into was the ambient-breaks (whatever you want to call it) room.

There were awsome tapestries up on the walls made to react with blacklights and chairs set out on the side. Then you enter a hallway that leads to a little open area in the complex. Christmas lights were decorating the few vines and green life in that area. A nice relaxing place to chill and take a break from dancing. On the other side of the chill out area was the entrance to the main room. After walking through a winding hallway, your introduced to a pretty open space with blasting techno. With sound from Tonka, it was going off, well mostly when Thomas Michael was on.

The first DJ in the main room was Myke McKenzie, it was my first time seeing him spin and I have to give props to the guy ’cause he got me moving. Next was Freddy who had energy of an atom bomb, he was dancing and spinning at the same time. Great set Freddy. Then came the moment most people were waiting for, Thomas Michael. What can I say, unbelievable set. I think it was during his set where I thought I saw everyone in the room dancing, now thats a great sight. He had the energy pumping, he even got a little techno and house in the middle of his set. After his set I was pooped from all that dancing, I was really bummed I couldn’t stay the rest of the night, but I needed some rest. Look for their parties in the future, for a first time production it went pretty well. I’ll be at the next one. Peace.
