Ecstasy

Ecstasy Withdrawl Symptoms One of the more popular drugs of the 90s, ecstasy is an extremely dangerous synthetic narcotic with many harmful side effects including death and permanent brain damage. Referred to as a ‘designer’ drug, ecstasy is also known as 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine or MDMA and its use is often associated with, but not limited to, underground raves and after-hours clubs.

Withdrawal Symptoms

A psychologically addictive drug because of the intense feeling of euphoria and heightened sensory stimulation that it produces, withdrawal symptoms include:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • panic attacks
  • sleeplessness or insomnia
  • inter-personal withdrawal
  • paranoid delusions

Treatment

Beginning with a period of detoxification, treatment for ecstasy may require medical supervision followed by cognitive-behavioral therapies including individual and group counseling.
