People around the world are silently suffering from an illness called Hallucingenic Persistent Perception Disorder. This debilitating condition is caused by recreational use of drugs. It could be a one time use, or years of use. The severity varies, but HPPD is classified as a mental illness and is a brain disorder. The American Psychiatric Association gives it this classification: HPPD DSM-5, Code 292.89. Sufferers of HPPD (and their families & friends) need medical research to find ways of alleviating symptoms and discover a cure. Many sufferers have died by suicide as the condition creates intense anxiety, depression and hopelessness. Visit
