I’m honored to chat today with Dr. Craig Heacock, a good friend, local psychiatrist, and fellow runner and podcast host. Craig and I take a deep dive into substance-induced psychosis, a problem that is, unfortunately, becoming more and more prevalent in young adults, particularly young men. These are a few discussion points that come up:
- What exactly is substance-induced psychosis?
- Is it qualitatively different than “regular” psychosis?
- What are the risk factors for developing substance-induced psychosis?
- What is the prognosis after a substance-induced psychotic break?
