Abusing the psycho-active compound Dextromethorphan, or DXM, causes panic attacks, hallucinations and liver damage. In addition, DXM can seriously harm the heart. This substance is readily available in cough syrups sold over the counter. “Robo-tripping,” a term derived from the trade name of one brand of cough syrup, has become an activity that can leave the user in a dissociative state, numb to his or her surroundings and without sensory control. This drug is addictive and very dangerous but at ARC, our staff of skilled professionals help individuals who are caught in this dependency become DXM free.
