MDMA is a popular club-drug due that produces intense feelings of euphoria and gives users a surge of energy. With just one bad batch, there can be severe health risks due to the unknown ingredients; meth and cocaine is often added along with other dangerous chemicals. MDMA rehab centers are equipped to deal with the addiction to this dangerous drug.
A MDMA rehab program is designed to assist people who are suffering from an addiction to MDMA or are abusing the substance. MDMA is an illegal drug that combines both psychedelics and stimulants to create an altered perception of reality and increased energy. The enjoyment of tactile experiences is increased and people feel love and empathy towards others.
When a person abuses or becomes addicted to MDMA, there can be long-term damage done to the brain’s receptors, some of which can be reversed in rehab. A patient will receive detox treatment at rehab where clinicians can administer drugs that can counter the effects of withdrawal, effects such as insomnia, exhaustion, pains in the body, anxiety and depression. After detox, then behavioral treatment will be the next step.
A dependency to MDMA is not common but it does occur along with withdrawal symptoms that affect both the physical and psychological aspects of a person. It occurs as a result of the body becoming use to the psychoactive drug. It affects the central nervous system and the brain’s processes. A dependency forms due to the body becoming use to the presence of the drug and the body finds a new balance. When the drug abuse stops, the body becomes unbalanced and withdrawal symptoms set in.
At a rehab facility, the staff is capable of effectively dealing with a dependency to MDMA. Through the use of medication such as anti-anxiety medication, the patient will go through the detox safely. Additionally, prior medical concerns can be monitored to ensure a safe recovery.
The psychological dependence to MDMA is the strongest form of addiction that can happen with the substance. A person will become reliant on the drug in order to have a good time and they can feel lost without it. It can be difficult to stop alone due to the strong dependence that can form and even if the person knows that it is doing harm to them, it does not stop the abuse.
In rehab, a person will go through various forms of treatment including methods such as Motivational Incentives which uses small rewards to reinforce positive behavior, cognitive behavioral therapy which involves a therapist in an individual counseling session where their behavior and thinking will be examined and irrational thinking will be addressed and replaced with positive coping skills and Motivational Interviewing which is guided by the patient not the therapist and brings about internal motivation for change.
In general, an inpatient treatment program has more success in keeping addicts in a program until completion. This increases the chance of a full recovery. This is due to the expertise of the staff in dealing with MDMA abuse and the support structures in place such as support groups. Additionally, a patient benefits from the structured programs that help to bring normalcy back to a person’s life which has likely become very chaotic.
An outpatient rehab program gives people more freedom to carry on with their normal life while still receiving all of the treatment that they need. While not generally as effective as an inpatient program, if a person remains in an outpatient program there is a good chance that they will successfully recover, especially for a less severe addiction. It is often the best option for people who have children to look after or have a job that they cannot leave.
