What is D.O.B?
Illegal in South Africa, D.O.B, which is commonly taken orally, can be found in various forms, such as tablets, on blotter paper and in a liquid form.
The drug by also be taken rectally and intravenously via an injection.
The effects of the drug depends on the dosage taken, for instance low dosages (under 1mg) of D.O.B can last up to 12 hours, while the effects of much higher dosages (around 3mg) may last up to 30 hours.
Signs and Symptoms of D.O.B Addiction
Those who abuse D.O.B excessively may experience feelings of incoherence, delusion, hallucination, euphoria and changes in perception.
Physical effects such as nausea, increased heart rate, hypertension and palpitations may also be found on those who abuse the drug.
Large doses of D.O.B can be extremely harmful, as overdoses may cause constriction of blood vessels which may lead to nerve damage and in some cases gangrene.
D.O.B Addiction Treatment
Similar to other addictions, the best way to recovery is a residential stay at a rehabilitation center will need to be administered.
During the stay at the rehab, a medical detoxification will be done to help ease any withdrawal symptoms that might be experienced as well as various forms of counselling and therapy which will teach the addict more about D.O.B, their addiction, and what can be done to avoid using it in the future.
Once your stay in rehab has been completed, Secondary Care is available, which goes deeper into what was taught in rehab and helps prepare the recovering addict for life without D.O.B.
Tertiary care is also available, as it helps in keeping the recovering individual level headed and focused to living life addiction free.
