Club drugs are seen as a way to escape and have fun while partying or going to festivals. But club drugs also have a very dark side as they are dangerous substances and when consumed in large quantities can lead to either overdose or death. Ecstasy is a very popular club drug used to enhance your emotions and experiences while partying and having fun. Ecstasy works by releases dopamine, and other feel-good chemicals into your brain to induce feelings of excitement and euphoria.


It’s very possible to get addicted to Ecstasy, although it doesn’t come with physical dependence such as from opioids. It instead keeps your mind dependent on continually chasing that feeling that ecstasy brings. Most people who go through ecstasy withdrawals experience physiological symptoms as opposed to physical symptoms. Ecstasy is a drug that messes heavy with your head because it invokes a ton of strong emotions when being used. It comes worse if the user has developed a high tolerance for the drug because that means they need more of it to get the same effects they use to.


So what do you do if your loved one is addicted to ecstasy? The first thing to do is to make sure that it is an actual addiction. You can ask them straightforward but be aware of any signs of denial. Denial is common amongst those who are facing addiction.  Addiction is difficult for people to deal with so you want to make sure you’re as considerate and delicate about the situation as possible. An intervention conversation is the first step in helping your loved one. Tell him or her about your worries and feelings, and in any case, do not support his or her desire to continue using a drug – alone or together. Not the less important thing for you is to refuse giving money your loved one for new drug and stop helping in finding new dose if you did it before.  If you still can’t get a confession, then it’s probably the best for you to seek out professional help. Making excuses for your loved one’s addiction, even if you don’t sure definitely, is helping him or her to make a step into severe addiction problems.
