The need for ecstasy addiction treatment continues to rise as more partygoers become addicted to the drug. There are a number of psychological and physical effects linked to ecstasy use, and an effective plan involves a variety of therapies and techniques. The Dawn is an affordable, holistic ecstasy rehab in Thailand, employing innovative treatment methods and a licensed team of addiction professionals.

Ecstasy is a popular drug found in the party and club scene that was originally created using MDMA (methylenedioxymethamphetamine) as the main ingredient. Nowadays the ingredients that are needed to create synthetic drugs are harder to find, so what actually makes its way into ecstasy can range drastically, and sometimes do not contain even a trace of MDMA. Even though MDMA itself can cause negative effects, what is currently being sold as ecstasy can be made up of a huge array of substances, including heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, to caffeine, rat poison, dog deworming properties and more.

What is the best treatment for ecstasy addiction?

For many people, recovering from ecstasy addiction involves inpatient ecstasy addiction treatment. Inpatient ecstasy rehab is particularly useful in helping a person stay abstinent from the drug, avoid self-medication and improve their mental health if co-occurring disorders, such as anxiety or depression, is an issue. Through rehabilitation programme, addiction professionals can help drug users to identify their triggers and learn healthier coping skills. Inpatient treatment can also give users the ideal environment that they need to come off of the drug and stay away from the triggers while in recovery.

Residential ecstasy addiction treatment is also beneficial particularly if a medical detox is needed. A comprehensive ecstasy rehab in Thailand at The Dawn is medically supervised, which will help make the patient’s withdrawal as comfortable and safe as possible. Therapy is another important factor because it is effective in identifying the factors that caused the person to use the drug in the first place, along with mental health symptoms that may last after withdrawal.

What is ecstasy addiction?

Ecstasy users may experience problems that are similar to those caused by cocaine and meth, including addiction, along with many similar effects on the brain’s systems. Ecstasy stimulates the brain’s key pleasure centres, which causes intense euphoria. After prolonged use, it starts to alter the way the brain’s reward system works so that addicts have to use it in order to reach the same levels of euphoria or to even feel normal. It can also create brain structure abnormalities after prolonged use.
