What is the Best MDMA Detox?

It goes by many names – “MDMA,” the “love drug,” “molly,” “X”, “ecstasy” or simply “E.” MDMA, along with substances like ketamine, methamphetamine and LSD, is part of a group of drugs known as “club drugs.” These drugs and more are all very popular among partygoers and among the nightclub scene.


While an addiction to any drug is dangerous, MDMA in particular comes with a few hidden threats. In many cases, people that use this drug may not be aware that the drug they are taking isn’t MDMA at all, but rather an even more dangerous mixture of substances like rat poison, cocaine, pet dewormers and more.


Because of these dangers, the best ecstasy detox facilities should provide much more than treatment for withdrawal symptoms. You’ll need to find a treatment center that addresses a variety of other complications that can arise as side effects of MDMA use.


Choosing the Best MDMA Detox


When it comes to ecstasy treatment programs, you’ll find a variety of options. Most experts agree that residential treatment programs are preferable to outpatient programs, particularly for club drug addictions because it gives you a safe space heal – one where you won’t be influenced by friends or other partygoers. In fact, many experts even suggest that out of state treatment facilities work best because it allows the recovering addict to break ties with enabling acquaintances.


You’ll also need to decide on the length of the treatment program. Most facilities that offer detox have programs that range between 30 and 90 days in length. Longer programs have higher success rates, but if the addiction is not severe, a doctor may recommend a shorter program followed by continuing treatment through counseling and support groups.


There is also a choice to make as to the type of facility. You can find residential treatment in a variety of places, including mental health facilities, hospitals and at recovery centers. To find the facility that best meets your needs and your lifestyle, you can rely on patient reviews and the library of information right here at theFix.com.


You’re Not Alone
