Ecstasy Addiction in Georgia
The deceptive drug promises euphoria and connection, but it continues to deliver devastating results instead:
Based on the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance (YRBS) findings in 2019, 5.1% of young adults in Georgia reported ecstasy use at least once in their lifetime.
The 2020 Georgia Stimulant Overdose Report cites that stimulant-related deaths, including those involving ecstasy, increased by 40% from 2018 to 2019.
The report also informs that there were 1,370 overdose deaths in Georgia in 2019, with 55% involving a stimulant, including MDMA.
Understanding Ecstasy Addiction
Ecstasy, or molly as it’s referred to on the street, can be highly addictive because it makes your brain release a chemical called dopamine, which makes you feel good. When you use ecstasy a lot, your tolerance increases as the brain starts to depend on taking the drug to feel happy.
MDMA produces its positive effects on the brain by altering levels of:
Taking more ecstasy to chase the pleasure-producing effects can harm the cells in your brain that make another chemical called serotonin. Ecstasy abuse can cause long-term brain chemistry changes that alter your mood, memory, and behavior. No longer feeling the high makes it difficult to quit ecstasy without dealing with mental health side effects or cravings.
Some common signs of ecstasy addiction can include:
Unsuccessfully attempting to cut down on ecstasy use
Developing a tolerance to ecstasy and needing to increase the amount to achieve intoxication
Using ecstasy causes the neglect of day-to-day responsibilities at work, school, or home
Taking ecstasy in large amounts or for longer than intended
Spending a lot of time trying to find ways to obtain, use, or recover from ecstasy use
Giving up social, occupational, or recreational activities due to ecstasy use
Continuing to use ecstasy even though it knowingly causes or exacerbates physical or psychological problems
Experiencing intense cravings for ecstasy
Using ecstasy in risky situations (e.g., while driving)
Continuing to use ecstasy even though it results in or amplifies social or interpersonal conflicts
If you use MDMA enough to experience adverse side effects like depression, anxiety, and fatigue, your body and mind may be addicted to the drug. Trying to stop using on your own can be difficult and even dangerous, depending on how much you use.
That’s why seeking professional help from a trusted recovery center like Southeast Detox is essential. Supervised inpatient detoxification can be crucial to overcoming MDMA addiction and achieving a drug-free life.
At Southeast Detox, our dedicated specialists ensure a smooth detox with 24-hour medical supervision, medication-assisted treatment, individualized care, and access to therapy to support your recovery.

Our Joint Commission Accreditation and State of Georgia licensing back our passion for helping clients get off the rollercoaster of ecstasy abuse.
To ensure that our clients receive our customized care to meet their specific needs, each individual who attends our rehab program undergoes an individual assessment from one of our addiction specialists to address their unique needs.
This assessment helps us understand your active addiction, history of substance abuse, prior treatments, and how to best assist in the MDMA detoxification process. After evaluation, you’ll undergo medical detox under careful medical supervision at our substance abuse treatment center, supporting your body and mind throughout the withdrawal process to ensure a smooth transition toward sobriety.
Getting skilled healthcare is crucial to stop using ecstasy because the drug affects your body. We provide a medical detox to alleviate withdrawal symptoms when stopping MDMA use, such as sickness, fatigue, and discomfort.
We offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to make this process more pleasant. MAT is an evidence-based approach used to treat addiction. It combines the use of medications with behavioral therapies to address the physical and psychological aspects of addiction.
MAT is used to manage detox withdrawal symptoms and cravings, making it easier for individuals to overcome addiction. You will collaborate with your care team to determine the most effective medication and dosage for your needs.
Several factors can impact the severity and duration of ecstasy withdrawal, including:
The duration and frequency of use
The dose of the drug
The presence of other mental health disorders
Having support from family, friends, or trusted addiction treatment professionals can make a significant difference during the withdrawal process.
Common withdrawal symptoms for ecstasy can include:
Inpatient Rehab Therapies for Ecstasy Addiction
Southeast Detox offers the most effective and trusted therapies designed to provide full support for individuals struggling with drug addiction, addressing both the body and mind aspects of your addiction.
During your stay at Southeast Detox, we offer therapies, including:
Individual Counseling: You’ll discuss your experiences with addiction and work with one of our trained therapists to develop coping strategies and identify drug-use triggers. This therapy provides a safe space for patients to express their feelings and work towards overcoming addiction.
Group Therapy: Group therapy brings together individuals working towards the same goal of recovery from ecstasy addiction. You’ll develop fellowship and communication skills through sharing your experiences, learning from others, and building a supportive community.
Family Therapy: This therapy is held in a safe space and helps address any underlying family issues that may have contributed to your addiction. Your therapist guides the discussion on education and how to support you in relapse prevention.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT): You’ll work with your therapist to identify negative thought patterns and develop strategies to replace them with positive ones. CBT focuses on learning new coping mechanisms to overcome addiction and address underlying mental health issues.
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): You’ll learn mindfulness techniques and strategies for emotional regulation, communication, and distress tolerance. DBT is effective in helping individuals develop the skills needed to overcome MDMA addiction and achieve lasting recovery from substance abuse.
Relapse prevention plans at Southeast Detox aim to empower individuals to resist and overcome the urge to resume negative behaviors after inpatient treatment.
You will collaborate with your care team to create your relapse prevention plan to ensure the highest quality of treatment and aftercare plans for a successful recovery.
Your plan will include the following:
Recognize high-risk situations that have triggered addictive behaviors in the past, and understand how to avoid them.
We teach coping skills to help individuals withstand urges and replace negative habits with positive ones.
Our treatment program provides medication education to help manage withdrawal symptoms, and we encourage individuals to continue taking medication after treatment if it is deemed appropriate for their recovery.
Aftercare focuses on addressing your questions and increasing your confidence in recovery.
Your aftercare plan emphasizes the importance of the following:
Developing a solid support system can include participating in outpatient, intensive outpatient, sober living, group therapy sessions, Southeast Detox’s alum program, or attending support group meetings such as 12-step programs. Having a network of people who understand the challenges of addiction and can offer support and encouragement can be invaluable in preventing relapse.
Continuing aftercare: Aftercare is an essential component of relapse prevention. It can include ongoing therapy, participation in support groups, or attending follow-up appointments with a medical provider. Continued support and monitoring can help individuals maintain their sobriety and prevent relapse.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment For MDMA Addiction
Southeast Detox provides integrated care for individuals with substance abuse and mental health issues. Our specialized treatment emphasizes dual-diagnosis situations, guaranteeing that you receive total support throughout your recovery journey.
MDMA misuse can cause or co-occur with several mental illnesses, such as:
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Taking a dual approach is critical as individuals frequently combine MDMA with other drugs, which can exacerbate mental health challenges. We understand that individuals often use MDMA as a means of self-medication for complex mental illnesses, and if left untreated in recovery, addiction can cause these illnesses to worsen.
This type of dual treatment is beneficial as it addresses both ecstasy addiction and mental health disorders in an integrated way with your care team by your side.

Southeast Detox strives to make its addiction treatment options accessible and affordable for all who seek help.
Southeast Detox accepts a range of private insurance policies, including Tricare, Anthem BCBS, Alliant Health Plans, Friday Health Plans, and Optum VA. We also accept most other private insurance policies. Additionally, private pay options are available for those who prefer to pay for treatment out-of-pocket.
