MDMA Treatment

MDMA Addiction Treatment Program in Los Angeles

MDMA addiction, like any form of addiction, can have devastating effects on an individual. MDMA’s use as a recreational high began in the 1980s. During this time, several chemists started circulating the drug around the nation in Texas, California, and New York (among other locations). They sold it across the country to convenience stores, gas stations, bars, and nightclubs. Use was so common that people could purchase the drug using their credit card through toll-free numbers. The uptick in use garnered the attention of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) in 1984. The agency, through the publication of a notice, declared its intent to label MDMA as a Schedule I drug, claiming it had no known medical value. Today, experts recognize this drug to be highly addictive. To learn about the benefits of our MDMA addiction treatment program, contact Silicon Beach Treatment Center today at 866.520.4881.

What Is MDMA?

Common street names for MDMA include ecstasy, E, or molly. The drug has similarities to both stimulants and hallucinogens. Users typically begin feeling its effects about fifteen minutes after ingestion, with these feelings lasting between three to six hours. MDMA users commonly experience an increase in energy and feelings of euphoria while on the drug. Similarly, the drug triggers the release of hormones in the brain, leading to increased feelings of sexual excitement. They may also experience heightened confidence in others and a sense of closeness and empathy with other users of the drug. 


The drug also has a number of negative side effects. MDMA can result in users experiencing spikes in their heart rate and blood pressure, which can be dangerous. In addition to this, MDMA also increases a person’s body temperature. As this happens, the drug can impede a person’s capability to tell if their body is overheating. The risk of fatality to MDMA increases in heated surroundings, such as music festivals and overfilled nightclubs. However, even in controlled temperature environments, MDMA can be fatal due to the body becoming excessively overheated.

Short-Term Effects of MDMA

Upon initial use, people often describe ecstasy as feeling euphoric, giving them more confidence and energy. There can be a sense of mania, and people who are high can appear childlike, giddy, and chatty. Users experience heightened sensory stimulation and mild hallucinations. These experiences translate well into the party or dance environment, a significant reason why MDMA is such a popular party drug. The pleasurable feelings associated with MDMA keep users coming back for more. Though typically said to be enjoyable, people can also experience symptoms such as:

Short-term effects can be deadly and can possibly lead to severe dehydration and overheating.

While experiencing MDMA can be very pleasurable, after the high has worn off, most users are left feeling depleted, exhausted, and depressed. This has to do with the fact that MDMA works to release and deplete serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain. The need to feel euphoric again often leads people to return to the drug as they find themselves incapable of reaching those feelings naturally. After prolonged use, an addiction develops where the only way to feel normal is to use the drug.

The Effects

Long-Term Effects of MDMA Addiction

Long-term use can also have dire consequences. Addicts can experience severe paranoia and lasting depression. It is not uncommon for mood swings to become part of a person’s daily life. Organ damage, specifically the liver and kidneys, happens because they must work overtime to detoxify the body from the drug. Some people with a longer-term habit have experienced irreversible brain damage. This damage can be as minor as memory loss, confusion, and difficulty problem-solving or as significant as untreatable brain lesions.

Regular users of the drug experience the following problems:

MDMA Deaths

While people do not typically die directly from overdosing on MDMA, they can die because of complications from its effects. MDMA leads to dehydration and hyperthermia, which have caused death in users unaware that anything was even wrong. Deaths linked to dehydration are common because when users are partying, they are unaware they are becoming dehydrated and failing to consume fluids or non-alcoholic drinks. Hyperthermia is a rise in body temperature, leading to heart attack and stroke.

Signs & Symptoms

Signs and Symptoms of MDMA Addiction

There are several things to watch for that could help determine whether or not a loved one is abusing MDMA. You may notice that they become uncharacteristically happy and act more friendly towards both friends and strangers. They may seem very energetic and desire to talk for long periods of time without seeming tired.

Other things to note may be a loss of appetite or engagement in things they once enjoyed. Insomnia and increased energy at odd hours are also something to watch for if you suspect an addiction. People who are high on MDMA can become orally fixated, tending to suck and chew on candies and other substances. They may also engage in heightened or unsafe sexual practices.

What Does MDMA Addiction Treatment Involve?

There is no one way to treat addiction. Therefore, we design every program around the specific needs of the individual. MDMA addiction can be tricky to spot as the addict often suffers mental withdrawal rather than physical symptoms. It can also be challenging because MDMA is hard to test for, as it leaves the system within a few days.

Common withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Paranoia
  • Mood swings
  • Panic attacks
  • Psychosis
  • Violent thoughts and behaviors

Usually, the individual has a hard time admitting they have a problem and instead will seek out the drug as a source of comfort rather than treatment. They must be under the supervision of a professional who can monitor and ease their adverse effects, thereby reducing the user’s chance of relapse
