Ecstasy effects can create pain in the mind and body of the very user who seeks pleasure from ecstasy effects. Pleasurable ecstasy effects that are sought include a relaxed upbeat mood and feelings, reduced anxiety, increased sensitivity to others and a high energy level that can be sustained for many hours. Regretfully, some only believe in pleasurable ecstasy effects which may explain why ecstasy use has increased steadily in recent years. In three studied grade levels, 8th, 10th and 12th, ecstasy use has risen over the past two years and by the time America's youth enters the 12th grade 11% have been under the influence of ecstasy effects.*
This site is dedicated to those who have found their life severely impacted by ecstasy effects and need ecstasy rehab. Ecstasy, a street name given for the chemical MDMA, is a synthetic, psychoactive, neurotoxic drug with many negative effects. Ecstasy has similar structure to stimulants, like cocaine, and hallucinogenics like LSD. Also similar to cocaine and amphetamines is the highly addictive nature of ecstasy effects. Another commonality of ecstasy and all other abused drugs is the down-side, the negative often long-lasting ecstasy effects that far outweigh the few short term pleasures listed above. Here are a few that may come as quickly as the first dose and increase with continued usage.
- Sleep problems
- Teeth clenching
- Blurred vision
- Acne like rash
- Brain damage
- Chills and sweating
- Liver damage
In addition to these consequences, impaired memory and long term reduction of serotonin and dopamine can disrupt normal brain activity in the ecstasy user and cause learning disorders and emotional problems. Erratic mood swings and depression can lead to isolation from friends and family that do not use. Often decreased performance on the job or in school occurs from ecstasy abuse and financial problems increase as well.

It is beneficial to note, especially since ecstasy effects many of our youth, that treatment for ecstasy, other drugs and/or alcohol abuse does not need to be voluntary to work. Most of our clients are motivated by a crisis of one form or another and many come to us under pressure from family, employers or the court system. The professional medical doctors, psychiatrists and counselors of Spencer Recovery Center's California drug rehab have worked with hundreds of clients suffering with the consequences of drug addiction.
Our successful program begins with a one-on-one consultation to assess the individual and customize the most effective treatment plan possible. Treatment plans vary per individual and address the underlying causes of drug use in addition to the symptoms of drug use including problems with family, employer, school and the legal system.
Medication and rest are often used in the first several days to detoxify the body of ecstasy effects and minimize emotional discomfort of withdrawal. Counselors then work with clients on an individual basis, in group sessions and in family therapy if required. Spencer's professional staff helps build effectual behaviors and positive abilities in clients to promote continual abstinence from drug use.

Treatment out of the area-
- Getting out of the area for ecstacy recovery will help an alcoholic or addict to focus on themselves rather than their familiar surroundings.
- Going out of the area for ecstacy recovery creates a mindset where a client is taking a journey for their recovery.
- If the going gets tough in treatment, a distance between the home and the treatment facility might affect a person's decision to not give up and to stay in treatment.
- Going to an ecstacy recovery program out of the area puts distance between you and your loved ones. Most treatment programs offer a family component and a long distance could make it difficult for supportive family and friends to participate in the treatment program.
- Going to an ecstacy recovery program out of the area might make it difficult to return to the home environment. If you choose to go out of the area for treatment, it is crucial to make sure that the treatment facility has a discharge planning process which includes assistance in finding outpatient and Twelve Step Support systems for when you return home.
What governing body is the treatment facility licensed through?
All ecstacy recovery programs providing therapeutic services and treatment planning, must be licensed by a State governing body. If one of the facilities that you are considering is NOT part of the RecoveryNowTV network, then you will need to make sure that the facility is licensed through the state.
Is the facility accredited?
If so, what is the accreditation agency governing the facility? Accreditation is a true sign of a quality and safety assurance plan for a facility. While accreditation is not mandatory for a facility, it does provide a higher level of standards for a facility to adhere to. The two major accrediting bodies are The Joint Commission (JCAHO) and Commission on Accreditation of Addiction recovery Facilities (CARF). Both accrediting organizations ensure that the facility actively participates in rigorous quality and safety improvement protocols.
What does a typical day entail?

Are there additional costs over and above the stated cost? Is there a daily rate? Is there an early termination policy?
Is there an extended care program?
When searching for an ecstacy recovery facility, if time and your schedule permits, it is recommended that you enter an extended care program or a structured sober living environment. This will ensure that the re-entry back into daily living is a safe transition. Many programs offer a step-down or sober living program which includes mandatory Twelve Step participation, curfews, and drug testing.
Is there a program in place for relapse?
It is important to know if the addiction recovery program will support you during a relapse. Many programs have relapse prevention or a refresher course in case of a relapse. Although many people do not want to consider readmitting to a treatment facility, it is important to know that your treatment program will support you if you have a relapse.
