Ecstasy Addiction Rehab in Orange County
Ecstasy is a stimulant drug, but also a tranquilizer at the same time. Ecstasy has many “street” names, including Molly, beans, the love drug, and more. They typically also have logos on them, dependent on the manufacturer. Most often, ecstasy is taken as a pill but can be snorted or injected. The hallucinogenic effects give the illusion of confidence and pleasure. While it seems like all of the effects of the drug are positive, in actuality the drug can have horrible and incapacitating effects on the user’s body and mind.

Long-term abuse of Ecstasy can not only lead to physical changes, but also neurological changes as well. There is medical evidence that says the repeated use of Ecstasy in the long-term can change the brain’s chemistry that suggests serotonin neurons are damaged. In addition to this damage, the physical damage is staggering as well- these include depression, memory loss, anxiety, and sleep problems. These conditions, unfortunately, could be present even after withdrawal from the drug.
Withdrawal is a difficult, but not impossible process. Some withdrawal symptoms include high heart rate, faintness, tension in the muscles, shaking, tremors, and hallucinations (to name a few). Withdrawal will differ dependent on how long you have been addicted to Ecstasy, but these symptoms typically run the overarching withdrawal time. The process is not easy, but by having a strong team to help offset the physical and mental discomfort from the withdrawal can help you get through it stronger and more successfully than just going through it alone.
