If you are ready to overcome your addiction, securing Ecstasy addiction treatment is imperative. Failure to obtain the professional support you need could see your life and your relationships with others severely impaired.
What Is Ecstasy Addiction
The active substance within ecstasy causing users to feel ‘high’ is MDMA. Once MDMA contacts the brain a number of neurotransmitters will be released. This causes a sense of euphoria to arise.
As Ecstasy in consumed, Serotonin and Norepinephrine are depleted. Following this, the brain requires several days in order to stockpile enough Serotonin and Norepinephrine for the user to feel ‘normal’ again. As a result, Ecstasy users experience a come down in the days following Ecstasy consumption.
This is when users are most likely to feel depressed, lethargic and encounter various other withdrawal symptoms.
The Health Implications Associated With Ecstasy Consumption
As an individual becomes addicted to Ecstasy and repeatedly abuses the drug, various health implications will gradually come hand-in-hand. Sadly, when an addiction is present, these health implications are often overlooked and ignored.
At first, the health implications of consuming Ecstasy are short-lived. Many of the symptoms will alleviate within a short period of time. However, when Ecstasy is consumed frequently over an extended period, individuals are at risk of developing long-term health implications that are, in many cases, irreversible.
Below, we have outlined just a handful of the health implications associated with Ecstasy consumptions.
- Powerful cravings
- Sleep pattern disruption and insomnia
- Extreme bouts of panic
- Overdose causing loss of consciousness and death
- Memory loss
- Organ failure
Ecstasy Addiction Treatment
When an Ecstasy addiction is identified, it is imperative that Ecstasy addiction treatment is sought. Sadly, as touched on above, failure to secure treatment increases the chances that long-term health implications including organ failure will be experienced. In extreme cases, deferring Ecstasy addiction treatment could result in death.
If you are personally struggling with an Ecstasy addiction, and are reading this, chances are that you are considering seeking treatment. However, you may find yourself somewhat perplexed and overwhelmed at the abundance of information you are provided with when conducting an internet search.
You may also be under the impression that the only Ecstasy addiction treatment available to you is via the NHS.
However, this is not true. Although the support provided by the NHS is beneficial, private residential rehabs such as our own offer industry leading treatment options for those struggling with Ecstasy addictions.
At Ocean Recovery, we regularly welcome individuals living with Ecstasy addictions to our residential treatment centre. Located in Blackpool, our centre acts as a home away from home and a safe place for many to overcome their addictions once and for all.

Securing A Place At Our Rehab Centre
Prior to commencing treatment at our rehab centre, you will be required to contact us to discuss your addiction.

Our Ecstasy Detoxification Programme
As and when you have entered our rehab and settled in, you will be subject to an initial detoxification programme. Usually medically induced, the detoxification programme will see you withdraw from Ecstasy in a safe and secure location.
During Ecstasy detoxification it is common for a number of withdrawal symptoms to arise. These withdrawal symptoms will typically be experienced for up to 5 days after the drug was last consumed.
Although detoxification can cause you to feel slightly uncomfortable, you will receive around the clock care and medical treatment from our staff. If you find the withdrawal symptoms unbearable, we may be able to offer you prescription drugs in order help you feel more comfortable.
What Happens After Ecstasy Detoxification?
After detoxification has concluded you will progress onto the rehabilitation stage of our Ecstasy addiction treatment. Although the treatment provided during rehabilitation will vary based on your personal needs, rehabilitation usually consists of psychological and well-being therapy.
During therapy, you will be encouraged to uncover the factors that have caused your Ecstasy addiction to arise. In doing so, you will work with a recovery specialist to come up with various coping strategies that will ultimately prevent you from relapsing in the future.
All of our therapy and counselling sessions are conducted on a one-to-one and group basis with our qualified psychologists or counsellors. During group therapy sessions you will be placed into a small group of four to ten people.
While you may not like the thought of group therapy, participating will allow you to listen to other people’s struggles with Ecstasy and discover the steps they are taking to overcome their addiction.
