Ecstasy (MDMA) Addiction

“Ecstasy,” “MDMA,” “X,” or any other name it’s known as, this drug, often thought to be less dangerous than other drugs or even harmless, is anything better. Psychologically addictive, it can lead to lasting health problems. While taking it can make people feel good in the moment, MDMA addiction has been classified in the DSM as a hallucinogen/ use disorder. If you or someone that you love has been struggling with ecstasy (MDMA) addiction, at Arision, we can help you to not just become clean and sober, but to develop the kinds of life skills and coping mechanisms that will empower you to stay that way. 

Physical Signs of Ecstasy (MDMA) Addiction 

Continued abuse of ecstasy (MDMA) can lead to serious health problems. However, even using it just once can cause negative effects with lasting adverse reactions, such as:

  • Problems sleeping
  • Erectile dysfunction 
  • Clenched teeth
  • Excessive sweating
  • Digestive problems 

Continued abuse of ecstasy (MDMA) can lead to more serious problems, such as: 

  • Loss of Memory
  • Anxiety 
  • Depression 
  • Insomnia
  • Lockjaw
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Central nervous system inflammation 

It’s not worth it to wait for those more serious problems to present themselves. The sooner you receive help for your ecstasy (MDMA) addiction, the better. 

Behavioral Signs of Ecstasy (MDMA) Addiction 

The physical signs of ecstasy (MDMA) addiction may only be obvious to the person experiencing them. However, behavioral signs of abusing this drug can manifest as: 

  • An inability to stop or even slow ecstasy (MDMA) abuse. 
  • Problems with relationships, romantic or otherwise
  • Inability to focus
  • Poor performance at work or school, even failing to attend
  • Building a schedule around where to acquire and use ecstasy (MDMA) 
  • Stopping activities (even ones you enjoyed) that don’t involve ecstasy (MDMA) 
  • Feeling like you require ecstasy (MDMA) to function. 
  • Continuing to abuse it even after it’s taken a negative toll on your life.
