Persisting Visual Disturbances

I'm 17 years of age and after using a psychedelic substance named DOI visual disturbances still exist. I've had it for over a year now. There's a static like sparkling snow over everything pretty much at all times. I see frequent motion trails and after images. Colors sometime shift to negative. Things frequently appear as they are "breathing" and within objects things appear to form patterns and move. At first it caused a lot of anxiety and I immediately stopped use of all drugs. I had strange panic attacks and the visual disturbances would increase in frequency and definition. I am now used to seeing them and don't get stressed about them I would still like for them to go away however. What treatment options do I have?

I'll talk to my brother today and find out what kind of doctor you could go to and what you might tell them, I know most doctors aren't too educated about it. And I'll do my best to get back to you tonight!
