what we treat

What are inhalants?

Inhalants can be found in commonly used products such as glue, markers, spray paints, gasoline, air fresheners, and more. Inhalants are commonly abused by children and adolescents and use can continue into adulthood. These products are often mistaken for being harmless due to their common applications, but they contain dangerous chemicals that may cause death after one application. Inhalants are applied by “breathing in” the chemical contained in an aerosol can or other solvents. They may also refer to applications by “huffing”, “sniffing”, “bagging”, or “snorting”.

Drug Effects

Once inhaled, the user may experience euphoria or a feeling of getting high. They may also feel dizzy, have trouble speaking, or trouble with coordination and moving. They may even experience hallucinations and delusions. The effects of inhalants are often fleeting, lasting seconds to minutes. Individuals tend to use multiple doses for a more lasting effect. Inhalants affect the body similarly to alcohol. They act as a central nervous system depressant, depriving the body of oxygen and causing the brain to slow down and the body to work harder. Inhalants can be fatal, even with one dose. Individuals who use inhalants for a long period of time can experience kidney, liver, and even brain damage.
