Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder (HPPD) is a disorder characterized by visual phenomena that appear following drug use. Under DSM-5 criteria, an HPPD diagnosis requires the visual changes be distressing or impairing. There are people who have the same or similar symptoms without distress.

While "hallucinogen" is in the name and psychedelics are the most frequently implicated drugs, other drugs (e.g. cannabis and MDMA) have been associated with the condition.

It often occurs in people with no preexisting psychological issues. Though a personal or familial background of psychiatric issues could be a risk factor.

The Drug Classroom (TDC) is dedicated to providing the type of drug education everyone should have. Drugs are never going to leave our society and there has never been a society free from drugs.

Therefore, it only makes sense to provide real education free from propaganda.

TDC doesn't advocate drug use. Rather, we operate with the intention of reducing the harm some substances can bring.
