Ecstasy, also known as MDMA or ‘Molly’, is a synthetic drug that is usually made of many unknown, illicitly produced substances, all of which have pronounced effects on your body and brain. While the experience of taking ecstasy is marked by euphoric feelings of love and pleasure, the reality is that these feelings are caused by an artificial surge of neurotransmitters in the brain, which quickly deplete with repeated use. This not only results in severe depression when the drug wears off, but a reduced ability to feel naturally happy and well-functioning.
If this is the situation you find yourself in, you have probably realised it’s time to get help. And you’ve come to the right place – at The Dawn, we have extensive experience in treating ecstasy addiction, and we offer an effective ecstasy treatment programme in a warm and welcoming environment.
Short-term effects of ecstasy can last for up to several weeks after use, and include:

At The Dawn, we are one big family – and as soon as you arrive, you’ll be a part of it, too. Unlike larger rehabs where finding your place in the group can be more difficult, here you will find it easy to make friends who will support your recovery during rehab and beyond. There are no cliques here – you can feel safe expressing your thoughts and feelings in our non-judgmental space. Because of this, our clients tend to form lasting bonds, and come away from their treatment experience with relationships that last a lifetime.
Studies have shown that outpatient addiction treatment results do not have quite the same longevity as inpatient care. This is because when you live onsite at an addiction treatment facility, the majority of your time each day is spent taking steps toward your recovery. Whether it’s attending one-on-one counselling, group therapy sessions or recreational outings, all of your time in rehab is planned around healing activities that encourage your progress. And, your daily stressors are kept at a distance, creating more space in your life for you to focus on yourself and your recovery.
Upon arrival at The Dawn, we will conduct a thorough physical and psychological assessment to determine your treatment needs. Your counsellor will then create a treatment plan, overseeing your progress and adjusting it as needed over the course of your stay. The main components this plan are: drug detox, addiction treatment counselling and holistic wellness therapy.
Making significant changes to your lifestyle is easier to accomplish when you remove unnecessary obstacles and create the space required to do so. At The Dawn’s beautiful facility in the idyllic countryside of Northern Thailand, you’ll enjoy eating delicious food, breathing clean air, basking in the tropical sun and sleeping to the sounds of nature. There’s simply no better place to take a break from the pressures of life and put the focus back on your wellness.
Clients tell us our cosy environment plus our genuinely caring clinical team that focuses on healing at all levels is the major draw card.
