Salvia divinorum is an herb that can induce a short-live experience similar to psychosis. Due to it being legal in many states, it is often sold online and at various stores. This ready availability along with other factors have led to the rise of both addiction to the drug and subsequently, Salvia rehab centers that help people cope with addiction to the substance.
Due to the lack of research into the long-term effects of salvia abuse, there is not enough evidence to know for sure what the long term effects of the substance can be on the body. However, due to several factors including genetics, environment and frequency of use among other factors, psychological addictions can form.
Salvia addiction rehab treatment programs aim to address the underlying factors in an individual that led them to their drug abuse.

Therefore, discovering the reason an individual starts to abuse substances can help them to understand the trigger situations and cope with them better. Support groups such as the 12-step program support group can further help to maintain a person’s sobriety.
