The fact that hallucinogenic drugs lack addictive qualities has led to a focus on possible long term effects such as flashbacks, a reappearance of the drug experience, possibly years later. Among the issues we will discuss in this article are what might constitute a flashback, current clinical definitions, some research into the phenomena, and the implications for therapeutic and recreational uses of hallucinogens. Making sense of flashback phenomena can be difficult because it involves issues of definitions, consciousness, how we recognize qualities of our own mental processes, and interactions between physiological and psychological functioning.
