If you or a friend has noticed that you’ve built up a tolerance for ecstasy, otherwise known as MDMA or molly, you should consider undergoing a detox. Because this drug is a psychoactive amphetamine, it can cause both psychological and physical dependence in regular users. It can take anywhere from two to four days for the body to physically detox from the drug; however, the amount of time required for withdrawal symptoms to fade can take even longer. A physical dependence on ecstasy can be characterized by the following symptoms: trouble concentrating, depression, loss of appetite, and fatigue.
Ecstasy is a Schedule 1 drug. This mean that it is considered to have no medical benefit by the U.S. Federal Government and that the drug has a high risk of being abused. The drug works to increase serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. This is the main reason people choose to get high with this drug. What some people are unaware of is that ecstasy can cause changes to occur in the brain. If you or someone you love has realized that there is an addiction problem, contact us at Intervention Drug Rehab Association today. We have helped countless clients who struggle with the ability to quit or control their use of ecstasy.
At our luxury drug rehab facility, we guide each client through a clinically managed detox. Being able to ensure the safety and comfort of each client is our highest priority during this time. Our staff members will be there for you or your loved one as you deal with the side effects of withdrawal. We will work together to find the best way to alleviate your discomfort. Counseling and sessions with case managers are very important during this time, because it is necessary to begin to learn techniques regarding how to deal with cravings. Remaining in a drug free environment during detox is key.
Once you have physically detoxed, it may take quite some time for the psychological symptoms of withdrawal to fade away. Many users report that the compulsive urge to find and take more ecstasy is a lingering problem. This is why it is highly important to complete an addiction recovery program that offers customized treatment for each client. Our clients are placed into one of our luxury drug rehab facilities where they live alongside others in recovery. They are transported to therapy sessions, classes, and group activities. Learning to beat temptations and triggers alongside others who understand is extremely beneficial.
Those who continue to use ecstasy (MDMA) generally tend to display the following emotions: depression (from the comedown), anxiety, sadness, restlessness, aggression, and irritability. Our network of providers at Intervention Drug Rehab Association is committed to helping each and every one of our clients establish a path to sobriety and a bright future. Contact one of our intake coordinators today in order to discuss doing a detox and a follow up addiction treatment program with us.
