TreatmentsPsilocybin Mushrooms do not cause strong addiction or physical dependence, so quitting is fairly easy. It is harder to quit if you've been using the drug for a long time because you build up a tolerance. Long time users may experience mild withdrawal symptoms, however, so they are recommended to slowly decrease the dosage of the drug. Mushroom addiction treatment centers are available for people with stronger addictions. In rehab, mushroom users go through behavior based therapy.For treatment, you can go to: 351 Northwest 42nd AvenueMiami, FL 33126(305)279-0102
