Considerations When Selecting an Ecstasy Rehab Program

VIEWS: 0 PAGES: 1

									Ecstasy, known on the street by names such as E, X, XTC, Hug Drug, and
Adam, is often considered a safe drug by the people who use it. One
reason for this might be the reputation of ecstasy as a social or party
drug. Users may believe that because they only take ecstasy occasionally
when partying with friends that they couldn't possibly become an abuser
or addict who needs Ecstacy rehab.   However, nothing could be further
from the truth.Known as one of the most popular drugs of choice for
teenagers and young adults, ecstasy became well known during the past
twenty years for its use as a party drug. It was often associated with
clubbing and raves, and was thought of as a drug that was not really
mainstream like cocaine or marijuana. However, in recent years, the use
of ecstasy has increased among young people, leading to abuse and
addiction. This has resulted in the need for ecstasy rehab programs
across the country.Addiction to ecstasy can be just as serious as
addiction to any other substance. In fact, in some ways it could be
considered more serious because the typical user is under the age of
thirty. Addiction at a younger age can be more damaging to the person,
as his or her body and brain are still in varying stages of development.
Since ecstasy has such a profound effect on the neurotransmitters in the
user's brain, it can be especially damaging to someone who becomes
addicted.If you have a son, daughter, brother, sister, or other young
person who you are concerned about because of their use of ecstasy, you
need to work to get them into a rehabilitation program. There are
several factors to consider when selecting the right ecstasy rehab
program for the young addict in your life.One of the first considerations
is whether an in-patient or out-patient ecstasy rehab program is best for
your situation. All things being equal, if cost is not a major issue for
you, it is usually recommended that the addict be admitted to an in-
patient facility for rehab.This residential approach keeps the user away
from drugs, as well as the people and environments that contributed to
the drug use. In addition, there tend to be more options for counseling,
medical supervision, and behavior modification when the addict is kept in
a controlled environment.
