									It is known as the young person's drug. It is also known as the party
drug. Its official scientific name is methylene-dioxy-methamphetamine.
On the street and in the clubs it is called "E" or "X" or maybe "XTC",
but you most likely have heard it called ecstasy. This illegal drug has
more names than most other drugs, making it a challenge to keep track
of.What is not hard to keep track of is the fact that ecstasy usage is
increasing, meaning there are more opportunities for abuse of this drug
necessitating ecstasy treatment. Ecstasy is in a class of drug called
psychoactive, which is generally defined as a drug providing the
stimulant effects of methamphetamine in combination with the
hallucinogenic effects of something like LSD. With this usage increase,
there is the need for increased ecstasy treatment options.If you have a
loved one that you suspect is using drugs, it is important to understand
some of the signs and symptoms and be on the lookout for them. While
some of these are the same from drug to drug, there are others that can
be very different depending on which drug is being abused. While
statistics seem to indicate that ecstasy is not as addictive as other
drugs, this does not mean that people do not get themselves into trouble
with this drug. Those who do will need ecstasy treatment in order to
overcome their desire to use.One of the characteristics that can make
ecstasy so dangerous is the fact that it is an illegal street drug. This
means that from one batch to the next, or one dealer to the next, you do
not necessarily know what you are getting. The ingredients might be
different. The strength might be different. In reality, it might not
even be ecstasy every time. For these reasons, it can be a challenge to
know exactly what effects usage might have on a person.That being said,
there are some general symptoms that you should watch for in someone you
suspect is using ecstasy. Since it is a stimulant, you might notice that
the person is not sleeping a normal amount. They might be staying out
late at night partying, possibly with a new crowd of friends. With the
stimulating effect of ecstasy, there can be a letdown as the drug wears
off, causing the person to be sluggish or maybe even depressed.It has
been shown that ecstasy acts on the neurotransmitters in the brain. With
repeated ecstasy use, these transmitters can come to expect the drug,
meaning that they readjust their "normal" to what the feeling is when
ecstasy is in the system. This can affect the user's ability to regulate
his or her moods, meaning there could be big mood swings. There have
also been reports of users being unable to accurately perceive reality.
