MDMA or ecstasy users may encounter serious addiction issues similar to those experienced by methamphetamine and cocaine users.
MDMA and Ecstasy Addiction Treatment
Despite being a difficult drug to treat for addiction, much like methamphetamine, research shows the most effective treatment for MDMA addiction and abuse is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Drug abuse recovery support groups may also be effective in supporting and reaching long-term, drug-free recovery goals. There are currently no pharmacological treatments for dependence on MDMA, but we at Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres use the cutting edge of therapeutic treatment options to offer you the psychological and addiction recovery support you need to achieve a clean lifestyle. We offer ecstasy addiction treatment at our 2 residential rehab centres in Ontario and an outpatient addiction rehab clinic in Toronto.

Effects of MDMA and Ecstasy
In addition to its mentally rewarding effects, MDMA’s psychological effects can include confusion, depression, sleep problems, anxiety, and paranoia, both short-term and long-term, after taking the drug. Physical effects can include muscle tension, involuntary teeth clenching and grinding, intense nausea, blurred vision, faintness, and chills or cold sweats.
MDMA and Ecstasy Addiction Symptoms
Symptoms such as increases in heart rate and blood pressure have led to reports of MDMA-related fatalities at music festivals and raves with more frequency in recent years. The stimulant effects of the drug can lead to dehydration, hyperthermia, and heart or kidney failure. MDMA use damages neurons associated with brain serotonin both during and after use. Long-term side effects also include memory loss and brain damage.
