MDMA Detox

MDMA, or ecstasy, has been a popular drug among young adults and teens for decades. Often recreationally used as a “party” drug mixed with other drugs, MDMA runs a very high risk of a psychological addiction. If you or someone you love has come to rely on MDMA, it may be time to seek help from our addiction treatment professionals at Future Now Detox.

MDMA Detox

What is MDMA?

MDMA, often called ecstasy or molly, is an illegal drug that is often used as a stimulant with hallucinogenic properties. A high on ecstasy gives users a feeling of euphoria and decreased anxiety, and the effects of the drug can last for up to 8 hours. While the high only lasts for hours, the comedown from ecstasy can last several days, causing a number of mental health issues to arise. 


Though many users of MDMA believe the drug to be harmless, a psychological dependence can quickly form, with users addicted to the dopamine release the drug gives them. Excessive ecstasy use can lead to kidney failure, heart failure, and long-term cognitive failure. Beyond the dangers of MDMA itself, the drug is often laced with other drugs, and users are not aware of the drug cocktail they are consuming.

Signs of MDMA Addiction

Since ecstasy often contains traces of other substances, it can be hard to fully understand the side effects. However, individuals abusing MDMA will continue to increase their dosage as the body develops a tolerance. Someone going through an ecstasy addiction will mostly experience psychological symptoms, but there are a number of physical symptoms that will also arise. These symptoms include:


  • Anxiety
  • Heart failure
  • Muscle cramping
  • High blood pressure
  • Nausea
  • Lack of appetite
  • Restlessness
  • Depression
  • Mood disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Seizures
  • Hallucinations

If you or a loved one is experiencing a combination of these symptoms as a result of chronic drug use, it may be time for a professional medical detox. Addiction affects every area of one’s life, and a detox treatment can be the first step to a life free from dependence on ecstasy.


MDMA Detox and Withdrawal Symptoms

Detox is the first step of any drug addiction treatment. During this phase of recovery, those seeking treatment stop using the drug entirely and are likely to experience ecstasy withdrawal symptoms. MDMA withdrawal symptoms are quite uncomfortable, ranging from depression and anxiety, to insomnia and paranoia. These withdrawal symptoms can wreak havoc on someone’s mental health, so it is imperative to have medical supervision when going through the detox process.

MDMA Addiction Treatment Process

After a medically assisted detox, there are a number of different treatment options available for long term recovery. After having round the clock care during detox, individuals will move on to a treatment plan that includes different therapies and therapeutic activities. Behavioral therapy, which includes individual, group, and family therapy, will be the cornerstone of recovery. 


Beyond that, a number of activities such as art therapy, nature therapy, music therapy, and animal therapy may be used to help those recovering express their feelings and find a creative outlet. Recovery is a journey, and we want to help you find the right treatment plan to overcome addiction.
