Ecstasy Addiction Treatment

Ecstasy, or MDMA, is a powerful stimulant and hallucinogenic street drug.

Addiction to ecstasy is possible, and can happen to people of any age. We can help you quit ecstasy and find lasting healing and recovery from your addiction.

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 nearly 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.

Our treatment model integrates 12-step facilitation with other best practices in clinical and medical approaches, which are proven to make a difference in long-term sobriety.

We are proudly accredited and in good standing with the Canadian Centre for Accreditation. This means that we routinely undergo an extensive review of our practices and procedures to ensure they meet the rigorous standards for quality of care, and organizational performance. In the current unregulated marketplace of addiction treatment providers, accreditation is how we set ourselves apart from the less reputable providers who can make some of the same claims as we do, but do not provide the quality of care necessary to fulfill those claims.

As part of this intensive process, independent third-party accreditation specialists regularly spend months reviewing and evaluating every aspect of our organization, from our policies and procedures to our facilities. All staff are interviewed to ensure that they are properly certified for the work they do, and that we are routinely receiving the most up-to-date training in areas such as Non-Violent Crisis Prevention and First Aid and CPR. In this way, the accreditation specialists can determine that staff at all levels of our organization are meeting their obligations both to our clients and within the organization, with integrity. The renewal process occurs every four years, which means we are consistently upgrading to meet the Canadian Centre for Accreditation's standards.

There are three accrediting bodies that are recognized by Ontario:

  • Accreditation Canada, which specializes in hospitals and offers a primer course for organizations considering accreditation;
  • Canadian Centre for Accreditation (CCA), which is Ontario-based (but operates country-wide) and specializes in community-based agencies;
  • Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), which is an American firm.

We chose to undergo the Canadian Centre for Accreditation's process because of their community-based specialty, their Ontario/Canadian foundation, and their philosophy, which is that they are partners with agencies and not only provide peer review audit/surveys, but also provide support to agencies in developing their protocols in order to achieve accreditation.
