MDMA – methylenedioxy-methamphetamine – came to prominence on the rave scene, but has infiltrated all walks of life. Predominantly used by males aged 18 years to 25 years, it is commonly known on the street as Ecstasy, or ‘molly’. Users report feelings of euphoria and well-being when taking Ecstasy, along with enhanced levels of smell, touch, sight and sound. Classed as a stimulant with potentially hallucinogenic properties, its effects can last several hours, while the subsequent crash can last several days. A particular danger of Ecstasy use is that it can be cut with ingredients such as cocaine, LSD and heroin to satisfy the need for greater impact. In fact, by 1995, less than 10% of Ecstasy pills on the market were pure MDMA.
Official statistics from the 2017-18 Crime Survey of England and Wales show that more people have been using ecstasy and cocaine than at any point during the past decade. Ecstasy was recorded as having around 550,000 recent users – up 25% on the previous year’s survey. The high-strength MDMA pills that have come into the hands of dealers have led to an increase in the number of Ecstasy-related deaths.
Our team offer genre-leading treatment programmes that take into account factors such as the guest’s age, the nature of the symptoms displayed and their severity. It’s a highly individual approach that is having marked success, often including one-on-one therapy sessions, support group activity, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, anger management and recreation therapy.
