When someone first starts taking ecstasy, the high was probably a level of euphoria they had never felt before. But so was the devastating crash once it wore off.

What Is Ecstasy Addiction?
Ecstasy addiction is a type of substance use disorder that is characterized by a dependence on the drug MDMA, also known as ecstasy. Ecstasy is a synthetic, psychoactive drug that has stimulant and hallucinogenic effects. It is typically taken in pill form, but can also be found in a powder or liquid form. Ecstasy abuse can develop after just one use, and the effects of the drug can be felt for up to 6 hours.
The high from ecstasy is often described as a rush of energy, followed by feelings of pleasure, happiness, and emotional warmth. It can also cause users to feel more alert and less inhibited. These effects are why the drug is often used at clubs or parties. However over time, the person may develop an addiction to this substance, with symptoms such as:
- Constantly thinking about using ecstasy, even when they’re not using it
- Taking larger doses of the drug to get the same high
- Spending more money on the drug
- Giving up important activities in their life in order to use ecstasy
- Continuing to use ecstasy even though it’s causing problems in their life
If you or someone you know is struggling with these symptoms, then it may be time to seek help from an ecstasy addiction treatment program.
Our Ecstasy Addiction Treatment Program
The success of a person’s recovery depends on the level of personalized treatment provided. When we say our treatment is individualized, we mean that we craft a program tailored to address the client’s unique physical, mental and emotional needs.
In the client’s first 24 hours with us, we’ll evaluate their current state and work to understand what challenges they need to overcome. They’ll also have an initial session with our doctor and meet with one of our licensed mental health professionals.
After the initial evaluations, we’ll design a treatment plan with the sole mission of helping the client overcome and heal from ecstasy addiction. Their program will include things like therapy, personalized 24/7 supervision, nutrition, and holistic treatments.
Ecstasy Rehab in Treasure Island, Florida
Ecstasy withdrawal symptoms can be very uncomfortable and, in some cases, even dangerous. Depending on the needs of you or your loved one, we may transfer the client to a local detox facility to complete the detoxification phase. That way, the client can begin the recovery process without the toxins of ecstasy in their body.
Our goal is to heal their whole self, body, mind, and spirit from MDMA abuse. We combine traditional, evidence-based treatment with a more holistic approach. These therapies include:
- Individual therapy – The client will have a minimum of two individual therapy sessions a week with their therapist to work through their struggles with ecstasy addiction and heal. If they have an emergency or want help outside of their scheduled sessions, a therapist is always available.
- Group therapy – This is where they’ll get to talk with others going through similar situations and help each other through recovery.
- Nutrition and fitness – Proper nutrition and exercise programs are provided to help the client’s body heal and grow strong again after a substance use disorder.
- Holistic activities – Activities like yoga, meditation, acupuncture, art therapy, and massage therapy can help the client relax, grow stronger, and stimulate their creativity.
We know that ecstasy addiction has a ripple effect on the entire family. While their loved one is in treatment, the family may also want to use this time to recover. To that end, we provide monthly support and family education, including individual therapy sessions they can join in person or remotely over the phone. If you and your family could benefit from some family addiction treatment of your own, we can help.
