Ecstasy, also known as MDMA or ‘Molly’, is a synthetic drug that’s 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’ve 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.

The Dawn is Asia’s leading addiction rehab and mental health retreat that focuses on healing on all levels.

Why The Dawn is Your Best Choice for Ecstasy Rehab in Thailand

Riverside Facilities of The Dawn Ecstasy Rehab Thailand

At The Dawn, we’re all 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’ll 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 to last a lifetime.

Inpatient Ecstasy Drug Rehabilitation: The Effective Option

Studies have shown that outpatient addiction treatment doesn’t have quite the same staying power as inpatient care. That’s 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 sobriety.

How Ecstasy Addiction Treatment Works at The Dawn

Upon arrival at The Dawn, we’ll conduct a thorough physical and psychological assessment to determine your treatment needs. Your therapist will then recommend a treatment plan, overseeing your progress and adjusting as needed over the course of your stay. The main components this plan are: drug detox, addiction treatment counselling and holistic wellness therapy.

Ecstasy withdrawal symptoms can include depression, anxiety, confusion, agitation, appetite fluctuations, self-esteem issues, insomnia and attention problems. Because the withdrawal process is so uncomfortable, it’s important that it’s done in a professionally supervised setting. Our onsite detox facility is staffed by qualified, compassionate medical professionals who will oversee the entire process to make sure you stay as comfortable as possible. Once your body is chemically back in balance, you’ll be ready to begin addiction treatment.

The Dawn’s own Twin Pillars method employs multiple therapeutic techniques to help you understand the underlying causes of your addiction and address them at their core to prevent the same problems from recurring down the road. This involves cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy (MCBT) and 12-Step fellowship. You’ll attend regular individual counselling sessions to dig deeper into the causes of your behaviours, experiential and process groups to learn from shared experiences with others, and AA or NA meetings to bolster your sober social support network.

Holistic therapies are proven to improve your overall rehab experience and accelerate your treatment progress. This is because they help you address issues on levels that talk therapy doesn’t, and promote the relaxation and clarity of mind necessary to do the important therapy work that sobriety requires. While you’re staying with us, you’ll have full access to our gym, health spa facilities, swimming pool and meditation areas to help keep your mind and body in balance.

If you’re physically dependent on ecstasy, your first step will likely be ecstasy detox. Not everyone requires this phase of treatment — this will be determined during an initial assessment prior to starting your treatment plan. We have a comprehensive medical detox facility onsite, so you can complete all stages of treatment in one location and easily transition from detox to therapy. Our centre is fully equipped with modern medical technology, and our medical staff are available at all hours.
After detox you’ll move on to addiction treatment, where you’ll stay in comfortable, private accommodation while working through an intensive daily programme. In this stage, we’ll focus on the underlying causes of your addiction using our own Twin Pillars approach. This unique approach to treatment combines evidence-based and innovative therapy and a complementary wellness regimen to ensure our clients have the best possible chance to maintain long-term recovery, sobriety and generally healthy living.
