The Doors of ‘Psychoactive Drug’ Perception

The term ‘psychoactive drug’ is used to describe any chemical substance that affects mood, perception or consciousness as a result of changes in the functioning of the nervous system (brain and spinal cord).

Psychoactive drugs are divided into 3 groups:

  • depressants: they slow down the central nervous system; for example: tranquillisers, alcohol, petrol, heroin and other opiates, cannabis (in low doses)
  • stimulants: they excite the nervous system; for example: nicotine, amphetamines, cocaine, caffeine
  • hallucinogens: they distort how things are perceived; for example: LSD, mescaline, ‘magic mushrooms’, cannabis (in high doses)
