In about 60% of cases psychotic symptoms resolved within one month of terminating illicit drug use, in about 30% of cases the psychotic symptoms persisted for 1 to 6 months after stopping illicit drug use and in about 10% of cases psychotic symptoms persisted for more than 6 months after stopping illicit drug use.

If it is a strictly drug-induced psychosis, recovery will involve first sobering the individual up. After the assessment, the doctor or psychiatrist will diagnose and treat the individual. Drug-induced psychosis recovery is different for each person, especially dependent upon the state of their mental health while sober.

It is possible to recover fairly quickly from one incidence of drug-induced psychosis, but if you develop a psychotic condition you can expect to go through recurrences. You can limit those relapses by getting a solid foundation of good treatment and by supplementing it with ongoing care, such as in the form of outpatient therapy or appropriate medications.

If your episode was triggered by drugs, severe stress (like a death in the family), or a physiological illness (there are a few of these, but the only one I can think of atm is anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis), there is a very good chance of recovery and being able to stop meds.

Following recovery from an episode of drug-induced psychosis, individuals may be referred to outpatient treatment programs. Through a combination of medication, individual therapy, and group therapy, the individual will be given the opportunities to explore their history of drug use, identify triggers for use, and develop skills to live a healthy, substance-free life.

The three stages of psychosis are prodome, acute and recovery. Psychotic disorders can last for a month or less and only occur once, or they can also last for six months or longer. A drug-induced psychosis can result from taking methamphetamine, opiates, alcohol and marijuana. Psychosis that is a one-time event can go away on its own, but many types of psychosis require professional treatment.

A long-term study adds to evidence that recovery from psychosis is possible, and the key may lie in using less antipsychotic medication after a psychotic episode ends. Study Finds Less or No Medication After Psychosis Fosters Recovery | Psychiatric News

Drug-induced psychosis has no set timeline. While some psychotic experiences are very limited in duration, lasting only hours, others persist for weeks, months, or even years, long after the drug has left the body. The exact duration can depend on which drug or combination of drugs you are using, dosage, and how long you have been using.

Starting Your Road To Recovery Drug-induced psychosis can be a short-term effect of drug abuse and addiction, but it can also cause more long-lasting effects. However, the prognosis seems to be affected by early intervention.

There’s no such thing. There’s no such thing. People, doctors, GP’s, nurses, whatever all try and say like you can recover from this. My psychiatrist, and this is why I respect him so much he says, you’re not going to recover. You’re going to have to spend your life… but what I can do is help you manage it better.
