Signs of an Ecstasy Addiction
Are you struggling with:
- Strong cravings for ecstasy and its effects?
- Taking more ecstasy, and more often?
- Using ecstasy despite problems it may be causing in your personal life or at work?
These are all signs of overuse and possible addiction to ecstasy. Tolerance to ecstasy is known to build up very quickly, making you crave it more often and in larger amounts.
If you need help or someone to talk to about how to quit ecstasy, call us for help. We can help you, your family or friends, deal with the effects of your ecstasy addiction.
Your road to recovery starts here.
The chemical name for ecstasy is 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, or MDMA for short. It is also known by its street names: E, XTC, Adam, or the love drug. The chemical makeup and effects of ecstasy are like amphetamines (stimulants) and mescaline (a hallucinogen).
Ecstasy is made in illegal labs with chemicals and processes that vary from lab to lab: what is sold as ecstasy therefore also often contains other drugs, fillers and toxic chemicals. When you take ecstasy, you don’t know what you’re taking, or how it will affect you.
We’ve helped over 50,000 people recover from substance addictions and we can help you too.
Ecstasy Addiction Treatment Centres
According to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), animal research has shown that ecstasy use can damage the brain cells that release serotonin, even damaging brain functions like learning and memory. As with any illegal street drug, you don’t know exactly what you’re taking, how much, and how it will affect you. These risks increase with the amount of ecstasy you take and how often you take it.
At Renascent, we offer a comprehensive, person-centred addiction treatment program for people who want to quit ecstasy. Our addiction treatment centres are all located in safe, caring environments inside beautifully restored heritage homes in the Toronto and Durham regions.
