I haven’t found any answer to this question Ive had ever since I discovered this forum. Why are almost all the recovery stories from those who got DPDR from psychedelics or weed? As far as I know, there are no major neurological or psychological differences between weed induced or virtually any other cause of DPDR. I saw a video explaining that drug induced has a physiological element to it— which simply takes a detoxification of the body to alleviate the DPDR. But when someone who gets it from drugs has it for upwards of three years and recovers, I cant see how that physiological element is still at play. Does anyone have any insight into this?

A bad drug experience, that might involve a panic attack, for example, is a psychological trauma, even if chemically induced, so a person can become fixated on this experience, even if not objectively "real." So the drug may have worn off but the mental scar remains, just as with any real-life trauma, as long as that person is still caught in that moment.
