MDMA Abuse Treatment in Miami
MDMA abuse treatment in Miami is a necessary service since MDMA, a drug also known as ecstasy or molly, is a stimulant drug that has a psychedelic effect when used. The scientific formulation for MDMA is 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine.
What Are the Effects/Symptoms of Use?
When taken, MDMA causes a euphoric effect where a person feels "high." Other effects include:
- fast heartbeat
- fluctuating body temperatures
- increased blood pressure
- jaw clenching
- violent behavior
The extreme high when taking MDMA can quickly lead to a severe low where people experience profound depression.

What Are the Dangers of the Drugs?
Using MDMA can cause dangerous and potentially lethal reactions. One of the greatest concerns associated with its use is that of hyperthermia. People may take it at a dance festival, and the drug causes an increase in body temperature. The user may continue dancing for long time periods, and the physical exertion results in greater fluid losses in addition to the heat from hyperthermia.
Another concern for users is that there are many different formulations of the drug. This means that a person may think he or she is taking MDMA when in fact the person is taking something mixed with MDMA - or not taking it at all. Examples of substances that have been mixed with MDMA include caffeine, Ketamine and dextromethorphan (DXM). Effects associated with taking tainted drugs include panic attacks, seizures and psychosis.
How Common Is Use in America?
Synthetic drugs, including Molly, are some of the fastest-growing drug markets in the country, according to CNN. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) once seized $95 million worth of drugs, paraphernalia and money related to selling Molly, according to CNN.
While there are no specific treatments for MDMA abuse, such as medications, there are options to help a person reduce the mental addiction to the drug. This includes using recovery programs available in the Miami area, which offer cognitive behavioral therapies. These therapies can help a person cope with cravings for the drug and stressors that could cause a person to relapse. In addition, there are support recovery groups for those who abuse MDMA that can help a person take further steps to staying sober. Narcotics Anonymous (http://www.namiami.org/) lets MDMA users share experiences with like-minded people. Don't let the abuse take over your life.
