Struggling with Addiction? Get Help Now

Treating Ecstasy Addiction at Boca Recovery Center 

Researchers say ecstasy affects many of the same systems targeted by other drugs. Regular ecstasy use can make you impulsive, and it’s hard to break the habit without help.[2] 

At Boca Recovery Center, we’ll create an evidence-based program that addresses all aspects of your addiction. The following elements might be included: 

Medical Detox 

Researchers haven’t identified specific medications that can treat ecstasy addiction. However, we do know that people who quit the drug (even after just one dose) can experience symptoms like moodiness, depression, and paranoia.[3] In a detox program, we can address your symptoms and help you feel comfortable. 

Treating withdrawal symptoms in medical detox is critical. Without help, your discomfort could be so severe that you return to drugs to feel better. Medical detox can help you move through the withdrawal process safely, so you’re more likely to complete it and begin to change your life. 

Medication-Assisted Treatment 

People addicted to opioids often enroll in medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and tap into therapies specifically designed to address the chemical changes caused by addiction. While we know ecstasy can cause persistent brain changes, no medications have been designed to treat them.[4]

Your ecstasy MAT program might involve the continued use of antidepressant medications, or you might need therapies to help you sleep. At Boca Recovery Center, we’ll learn more about the symptoms you’re facing and develop an appropriate medication program that can help. 

Comprehensive Inpatient Rehab Treatment 

Boca Recovery Center offers inpatient treatment for ecstasy addiction. Step away from your dealers, your triggers, and your stresses to focus exclusively on rebuilding your life. 

Most treatment programs last between 30 and 90 days. During that time, you’ll work with counselors, therapists, and support group specialists. You’ll attend group therapy, individual counseling, and creative arts therapy. Every moment of your day will be devoted to building the life you want. 

We have treated more than 10,000 people at Boca Recovery Center. We know what works and what doesn’t. You’re in good hands in our facilities. 

Therapy Options 

Therapy at Boca Recovery Center can help you learn how to address your ecstasy addiction. Treatment can help you overcome common problems that might hinder your recovery. 

For example, researchers say recurring ecstasy users often have deficits in their psychiatric well-being, and they often feel depressed.[4] Your therapy can help you understand how drugs have changed your brain cells, and you can build healthy habits to help you cope without using drugs. 

Some common therapies we use at Boca Recovery Center include the following:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): You work with a therapist to understand the connection between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to avoid relapse and learn coping skills.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): This type of CBT involves talk therapy and an education aspect to improve emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness.
  • Motivational enhancement therapy: This type of therapy focuses on resolving your ambivalence about entering treatment and stopping substance abuse.
  • Contingency management: You receive tangible rewards like vouchers or cash for abstinent behaviors, such as drug-free urine tests.
  • Group therapy: Facilitated by a mental health professional, you meet with other patients to discuss issues related to ecstasy addiction, challenges, and successes. You may practice sober social skills, drug refusal strategies, and role-play.
  • Family therapy: Facilitated by a mental health professional, you and at least one family member meet to heal the damage caused by ecstasy abuse, improve family bonds, and learn conflict resolution and communication skills.
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR): A therapist works with you to reduce the distress related to traumatic memories, using focused eye movements.
  • Holistic and complementary therapies: Combined with evidence-based therapies, holistic therapies like creative arts therapy and yoga may help treat various aspects of addiction.
