Ecstasy, Molly, or MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine), popularly known as Clarity, Adam, Eve, lover’s speed, peace, uppers, ecstasy or, more recently, as Molly, is a synthetic, psychoactive drug that has similarities to both the stimulant amphetamine and the hallucinogen mescaline. It produces feelings of increased energy, euphoria, emotional warmth and empathy toward others, and distortions in sensory and time perception.Ecstasy (MDMA) was initially popular among white adolescents and young adults in the nightclub scene or at “raves” (long dance parties), but the drug now affects a broader range of users and ethnicities. Ecstasy (MDMA) is most often taken orally, usually as a capsule or tablet, but can be snorted and injected. The current popular term Molly (slang for “molecular”) refers to the pure crystalline powder form of Ecstasy, usually sold in capsules. The drug’s effects last approximately 3 to 6 hours, although it is not uncommon for users to take a second dose of the drug as the effects of the first dose begin to fade. It is commonly taken in combination with other drugs.
Teen Challenge Christian rehab centers are recommended for recovery from ecstasy addiction, due to the length of time these programs give to addicts to allow them to get past their addiction. It takes a good year of abstinence in a controlled environment for an addict to get past the addiction to ecstasy. Most other rehab programs are not able to give that much time and attention to the addict or are too costing for most people to afford over an extended period of time.
