What Are Hallucinogens and Dissociative Drugs effects

The term Dissociation refers to one of the ways which our mind copes in situations with too much stress to handle, particularly following traumatic events. This in general, can be used to describe scenarios or experiences where you may feel disconnected in some way from the entire world around you or from your own self.
Why Do People Take Hallucinogenic or Dissociative Drugs?

Most people go through this surprising phenomenon of our minds as a natural response to trauma which canít really be manipulated. It can either be a form of reaction to a certain traumatic event which occurred years back or as a result of an ongoing upheaval and physical or emotional abuse. Moreover, bit deviating from the exact point, some people mind tend to get dissociated purposely to calm themselves down on focusing on a certain task or else as a part of a religious ritual. Some of these techniques are even practiced in Yoga and meditation.
