What Is MDMA?

person in therapy session talks with therapist about what MDMA is

Methylenedioxy-methamphetamine, or MDMA, is a popular party drug that creates a feeling of euphoria. People are attracted to the drug because of the loving feelings and heightened senses they experience. It creates a quick and easy high that makes it very attractive. Unfortunately, it’s a highly addictive drug and requires professional treatment to overcome the addiction. The continued use of the drug increases tolerance and leads to a greater chance of leading to addiction. NuLife Behavioral Health offers MDMA addiction treatment that can make a difference for you or a loved one.

What Is MDMA?

MDMA is a schedule I controlled substance. It is a man-made illegal drug and is what makes up ecstasy, also known as molly. It has no approved medical use and a high potential for abuse. It is commonly found in powder or crystal form and is even marketed to young people in a brightly-colored pill form so that it looks like candy. MDMA is often cut with other drugs like cocaine, heroin, and LSD, making it even more dangerous.

Side effects of MDMA use include:

  • Hallucinations
  • Poor judgment
  • Being confused
  • Extreme paranoia
  • Blurry vision
  • Feeling anxious
  • High blood pressure
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Short-term memory loss
  • Severe diet and sleep changes
  • Financial difficulties

What to Expect in MDMA Addiction Treatment

Receiving treatment for MDMA addiction at a treatment facility like NuLife Behavioral Health can be your best chance at fully recovering from a drug or alcohol addiction. Having the right tools and support lays the groundwork for a path to lifelong sobriety. Those who take part in a professional, holistic drug addiction treatment center are more likely to achieve a successful recovery from addiction than those who try and do it on their own.

NuLife Behavioral Health offers a variety of outpatient treatment options that combine traditional and experiential therapies. This includes individual therapies like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) as well as group therapy among supportive peers. Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) and partial hospitalization programs (PHP) offer flexibility to receive treatment that works with your everyday commitments like family and work. Outpatient treatment includes all of the therapeutic benefits of an inpatient program but without the residential requirement.

For more intensive treatment needs, a residential facility may be recommended. In this type of environment, one can receive detox services and then move onto an outpatient program to receive continued support—with flexibility—as the transition to day-to-day life takes place.

NuLife Behavioral Health Offers MDMA Addiction Treatment Options

Treatment for drug addiction can look different depending on the facility and the individual person. If medically-assisted detox is needed as a first step, NuLife Behavioral Health can refer a facility to assist in starting your treatment journey with detox or inpatient services. The NuLife Behavioral Health team can help continue your treatment after detox with a variety of outpatient services. Receiving treatment at an accredited treatment facility gives you the tools and strategies you need to manage your sobriety and achieve lifelong recovery.

Our levels of care include:

  • Partial hospitalization program (PHP) – The most intensive level of outpatient care with daily group and individual therapy sessions while living at home or in a sober living environment.
  • Intensive outpatient program (IOP) – Requires several hours of weekly therapy and is ideal for those with a strong sober support system at home.
  • Outpatient treatment – The least intensive level of care with regular group and individual therapy sessions.
  • Dual diagnosis – For those with a co-occurring mental health condition, this treatment program provides evidence-based therapies for both.
