BEACHSIDE TEEN TREATMENT CENTERMDMA ADDICTION
MDMA or ecstasy, also known as ‘club drug’, is widespread at teen parties and is also popular among drug abusers. MDMA / ecstasy is a laboratory formulated chemical that affects emotional sensitivity and energy enhancement in the body. It is available in capsule form as brand ‘Molly’. Addiction to this drug can be highly dangerous for both emotional and physical health.
What is MDMA?
MDMA (chemical name 3,4 methylenedioxy-methamphetamine) is an illicit drug, and known by its more common name ‘ecstacy’. As a stimulant and a hallucinogen, MDMA instigates release of serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine in the brain that acts as mood elevators and offers psychedelic effects. This drug is a temporary antidepressant that fills up the body with short term energy and emotional hyper sensitivity.
Drug Mixed With OTHER SUBSTANCES
MDMA is a prevalent drug in the rave party culture and like other addictive drugs, it is very harmful. MDMA is often mixed with other drugs to provide a greater effect. Overdose of these mixers can have detrimental effects, and in extreme cases be fatal. Specifically, mixing MDMA with the following can be highly dangerous and toxic:
- Dextromethorphan (DXM)
