Find Support For Ecstasy (MDMA) Addiction

Ecstasy, or MDMA as it is otherwise known, is a Class A drug. Made illegal in the United Kingdom in 1977, Ecstasy (MDMA) continues to be one of the most abused drugs.

Although individuals of all ages are believed to experiment with Ecstasy (MDMA), recreational use among those between 15 and 34 remains significantly high, with 6.5% of individuals admitting to consuming the drug.

Regrettably, as Ecstasy (MDMA) use continues to increase, the need for Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction treatment & rehab does too.

What Is An Ecstasy (MDMA) Addiction?

An Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction is a drug addiction that surfaces when individuals become reliant on Ecstasy (MDMA).

Often used as an escape from reality, to relieve mental health disorders and to alleviate pessimistic thoughts and feelings, a large proportion of users become dependent on the euphoric sensations released upon snorting or swallowing Ecstasy (MDMA).

As cravings for the high and euphoric sensations that the drug provides intensify, users gradually find it extremely difficult to navigate day to day life without Ecstasy (MDMA). As a result, larger and more frequent quantities of Ecstasy (MDMA) are desired. Sadly, repeatedly using and abusing Ecstasy (MDMA) causes addictions to emerge.


What Are The Effects Of An Ecstasy (MDMA) Addiction?

Due to the short term effects that Ecstasy (MDMA) provides, many overlook the long term side effects of an Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction.

Regrettably, as the effects of Ecstasy (MDMA) wear off, many psychological and physical side effects emerge. These long term side effects indicate that the body and brain cannot cope with Ecstasy (MDMA) consumption, yet many continue to ignore them.

While the long term side effects experienced greatly differ from person to person, the most common side effects of an Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction are outlined below.

Noticing The Early Signs and Symptoms of Ecstasy (MDMA) Addiction

As with all addictions, noticing the early signs and symptoms of Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction ensures that Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction treatment & rehab can be secured as soon as possible.

However, noticing the early signs and symptoms of Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction can be difficult, especially if you are personally struggling with an addiction.

This is because addicts often live in denial and do not believe that their Ecstasy (MDMA) consumption is harmful. Yet, spotting the early signs and symptoms of Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction is paramount. Doing so can save lives.

In addition to the physical and psychological side effects noted above, the early signs and symptoms of Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction include the following;

  • Struggling to cope without Ecstasy (MDMA)
  • Craving Ecstasy (MDMA)
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms such as nausea and persistent headaches
  • Attempting to hide Ecstasy (MDMA) consumption
  • Withdrawing from social activities and becoming extremely secretive
  • Spending a large sum of money on Ecstasy (MDMA)
  • Experiencing financial difficulty to feed an Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction

If you have noticed any of the above in a loved one or friend, or have recognised that you are personally struggling with the above signs and symptoms, Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction treatment & rehab must be obtained.


Ecstasy (MDMA) Addiction Treatment and Rehab At Asana Lodge

Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction treatment & rehab at Asana Lodge focuses on healing the body and brain by employing various industry-leading treatments.

Including detoxification, cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational interviewing, Satori Chair Therapy and NAD+ Therapy, drug rehab and drug detox focus on restoring brain and body health to assist those struggling with Ecstasy (MDMA) addictions in making a long-term recovery.

Detoxification, for example, contributes to an individual’s recovery as it ensures that Ecstasy (MDMA) is removed from the body and brain. Medically induced, the detoxification process helps those in recovery overcome the physical side effects of Ecstasy (MDMA). Detoxification also reduces the psychological side effects that come hand-in-hand.

Unlike detoxification, our therapy treatments and programmes combine talking therapies with well-being therapies to ensure that individuals struggling with Ecstasy (MDMA) addictions can appreciate the cause of their addiction and understand how they can overcome the negative behaviours and attitudes that lead them to consume Ecstasy (MDMA).

Many of our therapies, such as NAD+ therapy and Satori Chair Therapy, additionally focus on healing the mind by encouraging our clients to relax and unwind.

While our clients are required to remain in our residential rehab throughout the duration of their Ecstasy (MDMA) addiction treatment & rehab experience, upon completing treatment and returning home to continue their recovery, we provide 12-months of aftercare support. This ensures that recovery can be maintained.
