Researchers at the National Institute on Drug Abuse, University College London, and University of Technology in Germany have found that ecstasy users and past-users perform worse than non-users on tasks associated with the serotonin system in the brain, such as learning, memory, and attention. This research also suggests that ecstasy use is associated with long-term depression and anxiety, even among people who had not used for more than six months. Another study showed ecstasy users to have decreased blood flow to the brain (thought to be regulated by serotonin), and that the reduction in blood flow depended on dose, meaning there was a greater decrease among participants who had used ecstasy more often. Similarly, memory and learning impairment was more profound among people who had used ecstasy more often.
Opium withdrawal is the emotional depression and physical distress that sets in three to four hours after a user experiences the euphoria of the opium rush.

Relapse is a term used to describe when an individual who has quit using drugs starts using once again. A relapse can mean just a one time use, a long term continues period of using or anything in between after a period of sobriety has taken place. An individual begins to experience a psychological relapse long before their first use after
quitting. Some things that can lead to relapse both physically or psychologically include: 1. Being in the presence of drugs or alcohol, drug or alcohol users, or places where you used or bought chemicals. 2. Feelings we perceive as negative, particularly anger; also sadness, loneliness, guilt, fear, and anxiety. 3. Positive feelings that make you want to celebrate by using. 4. Listening to others past drug use stories and just dwelling on getting high. 5. Believing that you no longer have to worry (complacent). That is, that you are no longer stimulated to crave drugs/alcohol by any of the above situations or by anything else – and therefore maybe it’s safe for you to use occasionally.
An intervention is when a group of loved ones and/or a trained intervention counselor meets with the person in need of help for the purpose of breaking down their denial and motivating them to immediately seek drug addiction treatment. Often, individuals in the midst of drug addiction engage in a variety of self destructive behaviors. Although baffling to friends and family members such people generally either aren't aware on a conscious level that they have a drug addiction problem, or even when they know they have a problem they may cling to the false belief that the problem will somehow go away without any outside help. When an intervention is held a moment of clarity is created
for the addict. Most people struggling with the problem of drug or alcohol
addiction will accept help the very day of the intervention.
