Don't Know What To Do?
Ecstasy Abuse Treatment
The decision to get ecstasy abuse treatment for a loved one is a serious matter. Those who are helping make the decision are encouraged to seek consultation from drug rehab professionals. Parents and loved ones must be informed and involved in the addict's recovery. Here are some important things to consider:
- It is important to match ecstasy abuse treatment settings, interventions, and services to each individual's particular problems and needs. This is critical to his or her ultimate success in returning to healthy functioning in the family, school, and society.
- Effective ecstasy abuse treatment must focus on the multiple needs of the individual, not just the drug use.
- All associated medical, psychological, social, and cognitive problems must be addressed.
- Remaining in ecstasy abuse treatment for an adequate period of time is critical for treatment effectiveness and to achieve a positive change.
- Each person is different and the amount of time in ecstasy abuse treatment will depend on his or her problems and needs. Research shows that for most individuals, the beginning of improvement begins at about 3 months into treatment. After this time, there is usually further progress toward recovery. The length of stay in a residential program can range from 8 to 18 months, depending upon the individual's willingness and commitment.
- Counseling (individual and/or group) and other behavioral therapies are critical components of effective ecstasy abuse treatment.
- In therapy, addicts look at issues of motivation and build skills to resist drug use. They also learn how to replace drug-using activities with constructive and rewarding behaviors as well as improve their problem-solving skills. Behavioral therapy also facilitates interpersonal relationships and the individual's ability to function in the home and community.
- Medical detoxification is only the first stage of addiction treatment and by itself does little to change long-term drug use.
- Treatment does not need to be voluntary to be effective.
- Strong motivation can facilitate the treatment process. Sanctions or enticements in the family, school setting, or juvenile justice system can increase significantly both treatment entry and retention rates and the success of ecstasy abuse treatment interventions.
- Recovery from addiction can be a long-term process and frequently requires multiple episodes of treatment.
- As with other chronic problems, relapses to ecstasy use can occur during or after successful treatment episodes. Addicted individuals may require prolonged treatment and multiple episodes of treatment to achieve long-term abstinence and fully restored functioning. Participation in self-help support programs during and following treatment often is helpful in maintaining abstinence. Loved ones should ask what aftercare treatment services are available for continued or future treatment.
