MDMA Rehab at Bayview Recovery
Users may take MDMA or “Molly” to get a sense of euphoria and also experience feelings of happiness and love. MDMA has become a very popular drug among youth, especially those involved in the club and “rave” scenes. MDMA isn’t as addictive as other recreational drugs; however, it can still cause substantial harm to users, especially if they use the drug long-term.
In nearly all cases, MDMA users quickly find themselves psychologically addicted, and the overwhelming, intense and positive emotions they get from the drug become possible only while they continue using it. Over time, the drug will shut down the brain’s ability to create these feelings on its own. Thus, quitting MDMA leads most users to a “crash” — lows equal to or stronger than the drug’s original highs. When this happens, most users will quickly return to drug use.
Of course, long-time users will also experience life-threatening risks should they attempt to quit using on their own. These dangers become even bigger if other drugs are mixed in with the MDMA users are taking, which almost always is the case. These complications make detox even more difficult. Detox alone will not end your MDMA dependency, however. Comprehensive rehab and individualized therapy that address the underlying reasons for your drug use is necessary and is the only way out.
