Ecstasy Rehab

Victory Bay Drug Guide

Ecstasy was developed in 1912. Originally known as “MDMA,” it was considered legal until 1985. After that, drug dealers had a harder time acquiring actual ecstasy and today’s form can contain a variety of substances including LSD, heroin, cocaine, amphetamine, or even rat poison.

Because ecstasy is a “party drug,” it’s popular among teens and young adults. The drug has a high potential for abuse and many users end up in need of ecstasy treatment. According to, 92 percent of those who begin using ecstasy later turn to other drugs including marijuana, amphetamines, cocaine, and heroin.
