Ecstasy Addiction Treatment

Ecstasy Addiction

Ecstasy addiction treatment is designed to help individuals recover from the abuse of a synthetic drug used to boost energy and increase alertness. Ecstasy can cause hallucinations and a sense of distorted reality. Effective ecstasy addiction treatment accounts for not only the physical process of overcoming addiction, but also addresses the mental struggles involved and any behavioral or emotional aspects linked to drug abuse. Since its first rise in popularity in the 1990’s, ecstasy has spread from urban areas to suburbs, college campuses, and rural locations. Ecstasy may be mixed with other substances such as cocaine, ketamine, PCP, or caffeine, increasing the risk of severe damage or death. The abuse of this drug can cause:

  • Increased heart rate
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Confusion
  • Insomnia
  • Confusion
  • Poor memory
  • Cold flashes
  • Hot flashes
  • Muscle tension
  • Dehydration
  • Increased body temperature
  • And more

Unlike some drug addictions which stem from the use of regulated, manufactured substances such as prescriptions, ecstasy is most often smuggled in from overseas. There is no way to know how much each dose of ecstasy contains, elevating the risk of overdose. Recovery from drug abuse is not a simple issue of willpower, but rather a complex treatment process which must address and treat the root cause of addiction (such as mental illness) as well as account for the physical, behavioral, and psychological needs of the individual.
