MDMA (Ecstacy)

This article will provide an overview of how we treat MDMA detoxification at Tranquility Woods.

MDMA Overview

MDMA is a synthetic drug that has stimulant and hallucinogenic properties. It is commonly known by its street names, such as "Ecstasy" or "Molly."  The drug's effects and risks can vary widely based on factors like purity, dosage, the user's physical condition, and the presence of other substances, so it's a substance associated with significant potential harm, particularly with chronic or heavy use.

MDMA Withdrawal Symptoms

MDMA doesn't lead to physical dependence like opioids or alcohol, but chronic use can result in psychological dependence. Withdrawal symptoms from MDMA can manifest physically, such as fatigue, loss of appetite, and trouble concentrating, as well as psychologically, including depression, anxiety, irritability, and paranoia.

Commonly Mixed Drugs with MDMA

Drug Interaction
Alcohol Mixing with alcohol may increase the risk of dehydration and other adverse effects.
Marijuana Some users mix MDMA with marijuana to enhance or modulate the effects.
Amphetamines Combining with other stimulants may enhance the stimulant effects but also the risks.
Opioids Sometimes mixed to alter or extend the euphoric effects.
