Ecstasy Addiction Treatment
Ecstasy, also referred to as MDMA and Molly, is a synthetic, psychoactive drug that is illegal in most countries. It is chemically similar to hallucinogens and stimulants, and thus produces similar effects of both types of drug. Ecstasy alters the awareness and mood of the user, causing them to experience feelings of increased pleasure, empathy and emotional warmth. It also causes heightened sensations, increased energy and distorted perception of time.
People typically use ecstasy in the form of a capsule or tablet by swallowing it. It can also be used in liquid form or snorted as a powder. It is a popular party drug, and is often used at nightclubs, music festivals or “raves” (large, all-night dance parties). It is often used with other drugs, such as marijuana, cocaine or alcohol.
Ecstasy increases the activity of serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine – chemicals in the brain that impact many functions, including our mood and energy levels, hormones that affect sexual arousal, blood pressure and heart rate, sleeping patterns and more. Habitual use of ecstasy can cause chemical imbalances and cellular changes in the brain, as well as the development of a tolerance, which can both result in the user becoming addicted.
Warning Signs of Ecstasy Addiction
It’s not always obvious to tell when a person has an ecstasy addiction. However, if you know what to look for, the warning signs are out there. If you suspect someone you love is struggling with ecstasy addiction, or if you think you could be addicted to ecstasy yourself, these warning signs may indicate the need for ecstasy addiction treatment:
• Irregular sleeping schedule
• Lack of awareness of pain
• Risky sexual behavior
