Journey’s team of addiction professionals were recently interviewed in regard to Utah sizzurp trends. From the interview:
SALT LAKE CITY, (ABC 4 News) – A sweet drink popular among young adults is sending Utah teens to the hospital, as the drink can cause dangerous effects on the body.
“Robo-tripping” is known as a drink made from cough syrup and popular soda and candy.
Cough syrup contains an ingredient that can be harmful when taken in large amounts.
The drink causes a temporary euphoria, but it can also cause hallucinations, paranoia or trouble walking and talking.
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner Michael Desjardins with Journey Healing Centers in Salt Lake City said he has treated about seven to eight people who have overdosed on the drink since the start of 2013.
