The effects of MDMA can be seen as a release for an abuser who suffers from co-occurring disorders such as social anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress disorder. It can be seen as a reprieve from those daily burdens. However, as the brain is flooded with chemicals it already has, MDMA use can actually causes additional complications with these disorders.
Substance abuse treatment is especially beneficial to the individual who has been relying on MDMA for a balance of confidence and fulfillment.
In treatment, a specialized plan is created for each person seeking help. Treatment plans are designed to address underlying disorders that are contributing to the addiction as well as the addiction itself.
The initial focus upon entering treatment will be physical stability. Allowing the toxins of the drug to leave the body under medical supervision is the safest way to begin.
From there, a wide variety of therapies will be utilized to re-establish a sense of self, heal important relationships, and plan for a future without the use of MDMA.
As treatment is coming to an end, therapeutic focus will transition to living a life of recovery outside the treatment facility. A place to live, an aftercare plan to assist in avoiding relapses, and a support system that’s best suited to your goals will be determined before treatment is complete.
MDMA abuse does not have to be the end of your life’s journey. Help is available. Once you are free from addiction, a content and fulfilling life awaits you.
