Colorado Ecstasy Hotline
24/7, Toll-Free, Confidential
How Can You Get Help for Ecstasy Abuse?
While much of the nation’s focus is currently on the opioid epidemic in the U.S., there are other drugs that are problematic as well. One such drug is ecstasy or MDMA. This drug doesn’t create an addiction in the traditional sense. Instead, people often become addicted to it in the psychological sense because they enjoy the feelings it creates, or the social connections it allows them to have. Being dependent on ecstasy or MDMA in any way can be scary if you are the person with the problem, or if your loved one is abusing the drug.
Often, one of the first hurdles to receiving help for ecstasy abuse is denial, but another hurdle that comes after denial is simply not knowing how to get help or where to go for drug abuse help in Colorado.
If you want help, or even if you’re not sure that you’re ready to take that step, our 24-hour ecstasy/MDMA hotline is available to people in Colorado including Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs, as well as statewide. Along with The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake, we also have nationwide resources available to help people struggling with substance abuse and addiction.
How to Help Someone Who Abuses Ecstasy
You may not personally have a problem with ecstasy (MDMA), but someone close to you does. How do you help that person? The best things you can do to help someone struggling with ecstasy is to talk to them directly and honestly, and have an intervention if necessary.
An intervention is a time when a close group of loved ones of the addict comes together and shares their concerns with the person abusing drugs, as well as the consequences they will personally enact if the person doesn’t agree to treatment.
If you’re thinking about having an intervention for someone in your life, calling our ecstasy hotline can be a helpful step. Our coordinators can talk to you about the science of ecstasy addiction, and also give you information about treatment options that could be available to the drug abuser. Knowing this information before having the intervention is important, and it will increase the likelihood of the addict accepting treatment.
What Happens When You Call an Ecstasy Hotline?
Whether you personally have a problem with ecstasy or someone you love does, you may be questioning what happens when you actually make the call to our free Colorado ecstasy hotline.
First, your call will be handled by an experienced advisor who has a deep understanding of both addiction and the specifics of using ecstasy. This person will ask you questions about the addiction problem, and it’s important that you are honest because these questions are going to guide the conversation, the options they provide and the treatment they advise for you.
The intake coordinator at our Palmer Lake facility will talk to you about things such as how long you’ve used ecstasy, how frequently you use, and other situational factors surrounding your drug abuse. They will also ask questions about any other substances you might use, and whether you have co-occurring mental health disorders. All of your answers are completely confidential, and by getting this information, the Palmer Lake addiction specialist can outline what might be available to you regarding treatment and recovery, even if you’re not ready to enter treatment.
If you are ready to enter treatment when you call our free MDMA hotline, the coordinator can get you started on the intake process, and you may be able to enter treatment within a day.
This is also an excellent time to ask any questions you might have about addiction and treatment, and clear up any misconceptions you could have.
If you’re experiencing an emergency situation or something life-threatening is, please don’t call our Colorado ecstasy helpline. Instead, contact 911.
Otherwise, if you want to learn more about addiction and treatment options, we invite you to take advantage of our free ecstasy hotline. There always has to be a first step in recovery from addiction, and for many people, this ecstasy hotline is that step.
