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.
