Along with established threats like Spice and Salvia, new designer drugs derived from ""Research Chemicals"" are tearing families and communities apart across the country. The horrific reality is that Research Chemicals are virtually unregulated by the FDA and easy to get online, and are essentially repackaged as various designer drugs, which are deadly. While there has been successful nationwide efforts to make designer drugs like Bath Salts, Salvi, K12, etc., illegal, the Research Chemicals are unregulated and therefore nearly impossible to control, which is why the only way to impact the current situation is by arming people with information.

Leading the wave of designer drugs is a horrific substance referred to as ""Bath Salts"", that users are ingesting in order to get a hallucinogenic high, which comes with a side of extreme paranoia and raging anger. Bath Salts contain mephedrone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), a stimulant that can be broken up and snorted, smoked or reduced to a liquid for injection just like cocaine. Since the effects of Bath Salts are similar to cocaine, meth and ecstasy, dangerous amounts of Dopamine and very low levels of Serotonin impact the user's brain, which results in severely damaged brain chemistry and inevitable psychosis with prolonged use.

The most terrifying effect of Bath Salts is found after users ingest the drug for multiple days. Since the drug has a much longer half-life than other drugs, abusers stay under the influence longer, and after just a couple of days, a staggering number of users experience full psychotic breaks, which often result in extreme delusions, violent outbursts and severe depression.
Leading the wave of new designer drugs is a horrific substance referred to as ""Cosmetics"", that users are ingesting in order to get a hallucinogenic high. The new Cosmetic products contain research chemicals (mephedrone, methylenedioxypyrovalerone or MDPV), stimulants that can be broken up and snorted, smoked or reduced to a liquid for injection just like cocaine. Since the effects of ingesting cosmetics are similar to cocaine, meth and ecstasy, dangerous amounts of Dopamine and very low levels of Serotonin impact the user's brain, which results in severely damaged brain chemistry and inevitable psychosis with prolonged use.

According to various reports from around the country, the Bath Salt craze is reaching epidemic proportions and very few addiction experts are familiar with the compound or how to treat the addiction. My team at Inspire Malibu is not only leading the charge against designer drugs, but has also developed a proper protocol for treatment. Kids are dying while parents and many professionals have no idea why. The reality is that the moment Bath Salts are outlawed, the very same research chemicals are simply repackaged as a new product and sold legally. As long as the label reads ""Not For Human Consumption,"" retailers are protected, while the sole intention of the products is to be consumed. Research Chemicals have also started popping up in smoke shops and novelty stores as ""Plant Food"" and the latest trend is ""Cosmetics.""

Cosmetics are packaged as actual make-up for young kids and look very similar to legitimate cosmetics. If parents and experts aren't made aware that some of these make-up products are manufactured with the sole intention of getting users high, we will undoubtedly have a problem of epidemic proportion. While legislators fight to make designer drug brands illegal, the research chemicals used to make the products are not controlled, which means that manufacturers will continue to produce these chemicals, package them as different products that haven't been identified and make them available to kids. Until research chemicals are controlled, this will be a never ending process and we must remain vigilant.

The best course of action is to beware of labels with the ""not for human consumption"" warning, if you find a questionable product - research it, arm yourself with information and by all means, talk to your kids! They have the answers and healthy communication will solve many issues. We will continue to make information available at Ask Inspire but as a parent, err on the side of caution and follow your gut. If something feels wrong and your child's behavior has become erratic, something is most likely wrong. Feel free to reach out to me directly and I will help you find the best treatment option for your circumstances but be vigilant when it comes to your kids and if you get stuck, Ask Inspire."
