Ecstasy Rehab at Bayview Recovery

Users take ecstasy, also known as “Molly” or MDMA, to achieve a sense of euphoria along with feelings of happiness and love. For this reason, ecstasy has become a popular drug among younger people, especially those who are active in the club or “rave” scenes. Ecstasy does not share the same intense addictiveness of other recreational drugs; however, this does not make it less harmful than its counterparts.

Instead, ecstasy users may find themselves psychologically addicted to the drug. The overwhelming and intense positive emotions that they seek from the drug become possible only when they take the drug. This is because, over time, the drug shuts down the brain’s natural ability to generate these feelings. Thus, quitting ecstasy on your own can easily lead to a “crash” — lows equal to the drug’s highs — that quickly result in ongoing drug use.

Long-time users will also experience sometimes life-threatening health risks should they attempt to quit on their own. These dangers come in part from the drug itself as well as from the other drugs that often get mixed in with ecstasy, causing complications during detox. Detox alone will not end your dependence on ecstasy. Comprehensive, individualized rehab that addresses the underlying reasons for your habit is also always necessary.
