Ecstasy Addiction Treatment

MDMA Treatment: The Dangers of Ecstasy

sprout_fl_ecstasy_treatmentMethylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), also known as Ecstasy, “E”, or Molly, is used as a club drug to enhance the party experience. Younger generations use it at clubs, raves, and festivals with the false assumption that it is a safe drug.

Becoming Addicted

What many users don’t understand right away is that ecstasy is incredibly addictive, and all of the positive effects of ecstasy are followed with negative consequences that can only be remedied with either the short term solution of more ecstasy or long term solution of detox and therapy. Ecstasy destroys serotonin transmitters, which regulate one’s mood. Mood swings create even more motivation to revert to the drug because the high of ecstasy results in temporary euphoria.

The Dangers of Ecstasy

Since MDMA is illegal, there are no health code regulations or regulations at all. Buying it off the street usually means you’ll get a mix of meth, weed, heroin or other drugs and harmful chemicals. The combination of these chemicals makes the drug even more dangerous.

Even if you were to get your hands on pure ecstasy, the dangers are still substantial. It dramatically increases your body temperature, and if it increases it too much, you will die from the destruction of your metabolic system. It throws off the amount of carbon dioxide in your cells causing ruining the acid balance of your body and is very dangerous.

Here is a list of five ways ecstasy can result in death:

  • Severe Dehydration
  • Hypothermia
  • Kidney Failure
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Heart Failure

Signs of Dependency

If you’re concerned that someone may be addicted to MDMA, look for some of the following symptoms that coincide with this addiction.

  • Loss of Appetite
  • Loss of Sleep
  • Irritability
  • Aggressiveness
  • Lack of sex drive
  • Loss of interests
  • Severe thirst
  • Shivering
  • Confusion
  • Muscle Spasms

Treatment for Ecstasy Addiction

Treating this type of addiction involves a detox and extensive therapy. While the detox is performed to remove the drug from the body, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is used to reverse the adverse mental effects that the drug has on its users. Every patient and every situation are different, so therapy and treatment processes are custom designed for each person through a series of assessments and evaluations performed at the beginning of rehabilitation.
