Melting on the couch

I am currently based in the in-patient psychiatry ward of Waikato Hospital and have seen far too
many drug-induced psychoses over the past few weeks.
This brought to mind this 2012 series by Washington based artist Bryan Lewis Saunders, who created the below
images while under the influence of various (illicit) drugs.
These pictures are definitely worth a thousand words when it comes to illustrating the oftentimes grim
and disturbing effect of these substances on your mind.
As they say, “Hugs not Drugs”
