Inhalants

Inhalants are a variety of common household products ranging from glue to gasoline to aerosol products that have a history of abuse. These products give off dangerous fumes that can be sniffed or inhaled. Most of the products can be purchased legally, which makes it more difficult to control the sale and use of them.

Household products are not the only type of inhalant. One popular example is nitrous oxide, which comes from balloons. It comes from inflated balloons, is easy to inhale, and is reportedly the most popular inhalant among young adults.

The effects of inhalants are always short, with the length of the high varying with different amounts of the inhaled substance. Short term side effects can include vomiting, unconsciousness, loss of appetite, slurred speech, and nausea. In the most severe cases of inhaling, Sudden Sniffing Death Syndrome is caused by irregular heart rate. Butyl nitrate, Freon, butane, and trichloroethylene are the substances that are related to death. In terms of burn-related ailments, petrol and butane are responsible when smoking cigarettes or exposing open flames near flammable substances.

Inhalant long-term effects are also lack of appetite, nausea, and irritability. Over a period of time kidney damage, liver damage, reproductive complications, and suppressed immunologic function can occur in the body.

Detoxification durations range from weeks too over a month because inhalants stay in the body’s system for several weeks. It is important to see that there are no remaining toxins in the system. After detoxification, treatment programs are most effective. Traditional drug treatment programs do not commonly concentrate on inhalants as an individual problem because they are often simultaneously abused with other substances.

Treatment must center on lifestyle change. A change in social groups is crucial for individuals abusing inhalants as well as continued help during the rehab process to make sure there is no relapse.
