Who Goes to Treatment for Ecstasy Abuse?

Chalkboard with the Molecular Structure of MDMA Ecstasy Drawn in White Chalk

Ecstasy, or MDMA, is an illegal ‘club drug’ which gives users an intense feeling of euphoria, energy, and warmth. Because ecstasy’s high is so intense and pleasurable, many people will find themselves addicted to the drug. Furthermore, the effects of ecstasy on the brain are equally extreme. When a dose is taken, neurochemicals like dopamine are produced quickly and in abundance. Once the high wears off, users rapidly crash as dopamine levels plummet. The risk of triggering a depressive episode is high with ecstasy abuse.

Fortunately, there is treatment available, and anyone who is struggling with abuse and addiction to ecstasy can get help from a qualified treatment center.

What are the risks of overdose with ecstasy abuse?

An Ecstasy high can cause dangerous increases in core body temperature. People who abuse ecstasy are at-risk of experiencing dangerous seizures and organ damage and failure from the drug. Worse still, people who take and abuse ecstasy have high rates of polydrug use. Taking several dangerous drugs at once increases the risk of overdosing. Without help, people with an ecstasy addiction can die or experience seizures and permanent brain damage and cognitive impairment.

Is detox recommended to treat an ecstasy addiction?

Yes. Sudden cessation of ecstasy can trigger depression, anxiety, and cause muscle pains and cramping. In a detox facility, patients can come down from the drugs in a supportive and serene environment where doctors can prescribe medications to lessen painful withdrawal symptoms and treat depression.

How much individual therapy is available for a patient in a drug treatment facility?

Treatment is always tailored to the individual, depending on their needs. However, ongoing, lifelong individual therapy is needed to maintain lifelong sobriety. People who are in rehab will, of course, need more frequent therapy sessions than someone who has already achieved sobriety and is living outside of a facility, but therapy is required to keep someone from relapsing.

How can someone pay for a stay in a drug treatment center?

Staff at a treatment center are trained to work with insurance companies to get the care a patient needs. Also, some centers will offer financing for eligible individuals, and the government also has assistance programs available for those who qualify.

What is the goal of group therapy in a drug rehab center?

Human beings are empathic, social creatures, who bond through story-telling. The goal of group therapy is to create a positive environment and shared bond through similar struggles. Group therapy offers people in recovery the chance to make friends and work through their struggles as a group. Being around people who are going through the same journey and who’ve experienced the same pain associated with drug addiction can give people the motivation and encouragement to continue with their recovery and treatment plans.

Also, it’s recommended that a supportive family and loved ones attend family therapy sessions. People in recovery need a support system that is educated about their struggles and triggers. Without support, it’s difficult for someone to maintain lifelong sobriety.

Drug addiction is a terrible disease. If you or a loved one are struggling, please reach out to a qualified counselor today and begin the journey to lifelong healing and sobriety.
