Molly (also known as MDMA or Ecstasy) is a popular psychedelic. Counterfeit MDMA is often cut with fentanyl or methamphetamine, which can be deadly. An MDMA test kit purchased online can be helpful, but it may not always be accurate; there is no way to ensure that MDMA purchased online or from a dealer is safe. Like other substances, it’s available in powder, tablet, gel, or liquid form.
The use of this drug causes increased sensations of warmth and love towards others along with sensory distortion. Long-term use of Molly can cause serious physical and psychological problems. There have even been instances where even first-time users died of a sudden heart attack. If you feel like your MDMA use has gotten out of control, substance abuse treatments designed by master therapists is the best way to get on the path toward healthy living.
What Is MDMA?
Molly is the street name for a synthetic drug that mainly contains MDMA. Pure MDMA is difficult to come by; people who buy Molly often don’t get what they pay for. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), only 1% of Molly seized in the last four years in New York had MDMA. More often than not, users mix Molly with other dangerous lab-made chemicals, like fentanyl, MDPV, or methamphetamine.
Typically used in raves and nightclubs, the MDMA is popular for its hallucinogenic properties. People who use ecstasy may also have the tendency to abuse other illegal drugs, such as LSD or marijuana.
Side Effects of MDMA
In just an hour of taking Molly, people can experience heightened energy along with feelings of warmth, love, and empathy. They also experience distortions of space and time. Other side effects of Molly use resemble that of opium drug use, including:
- High blood pressure
- Intense sweating
- Severe dehydration
- Kidney failure
- Irregular heart rhythm
- Heart attacks

Some of the comprehensive addiction treatment programs at Crestview Recovery include:
Extended Care Addiction Program
A long-term, residential treatment program that provides comprehensive care for people struggling with addiction. These programs typically last between 90 and 120 days, and they include a variety of therapeutic modalities, such as individual and group therapy, 12-step meetings, and holistic activities.
The 12-step recovery program is a set of guiding principles outlining a course of action for addressing addiction and substance abuse. The program’s foundations are based on the belief that addiction is a disease that can be effectively treated by involving a higher power, admitting defeat, taking responsibility for past actions, and making amends.
Partial Hospitalization Program
A partial hospitalization program (PHP) is a type of treatment that provides intensive care for people recovering from addiction. It is typically used as a step down from inpatient treatment or as a step up from outpatient care. PHP can be an effective treatment for addiction because it allows people to receive intensive care while still being able to live at home and continue with their normal daily activities.
Evening Intensive Outpatient Program
Evening Intensive Outpatient Programs (EIOPs) are addiction treatment programs that offer a more flexible schedule for those who cannot commit to a full-time, inpatient program. EIOPs are beneficial for those who need more structure than weekly outpatient therapy but cannot commit to a full-time inpatient program.
Aftercare is a set of practices and procedures designed to help people in addiction recovery maintain sobriety and avoid relapse. It typically includes ongoing counseling and support, as well as continued involvement in 12-step or other recovery programs. The goal of aftercare is to help people in recovery build a strong support network and establish healthy habits that will reduce the risk of relapse.
Life Skills Rehab
Patients in life skills rehab learn how to budget their time and money, cook healthy meals, find and keep a job, and navigate social situations without using drugs or alcohol. They also learn how to deal with triggers and cravings, manage their emotions, and build a support network of family and friends. Life skills rehab can be an important part of the recovery process for many people struggling with addiction.
