Yes they can. If they're caused by recreational drugs, they'll wear off.

If they're caused by mental illness, they can go on for a long time if not treated. A person hallucinating is in danger, so please seek help for the person.

If they're cased by a drug interaction, it depends on the person and the medical condition.
