Mesa MDMA addiction rehab centers effectively treat individuals who find themselves deeply addicted to MDMA. MDMA stands for 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine and is more commonly known as "Molly", "Mandy," or "Ecstasy". Variations on these names are often used as well. The latter name is used for the tablet form while the former names are used to denote the crystalline form. Because MDMA is a combination of dopamine release chemicals and serotonin reuptake inhibitors, it creates both an energized stimulant effect and a euphoric feeling of well-being. These can change some sensory perceptions, which is why MDMA is popular amongst those who listen to music based primarily on backbeat rhythms and parties with many lighting effects - the combination of which is often referred to as a "rave."

Some MDMA users also combine it with other drugs to enhance effects. This is commonly done with LSD ("acid"), psilocybin mushrooms, and other psychedelics. Unlike many recreational drugs, MDMA requires some time to take effect - usually about half an hour from consumption in pill form and longer for other forms of ingestion. The drug is relatively slow to build up to its maximum effect, which can take nearly two hours, and lasts for only about three or four hours in total.
The most sought-after effects are euphoric sociability in which the user feels closer and more communicative with others around them, often with enhanced physical sensation and sexuality. It's for this reason that MDMA is sometimes associated with date rape or other sexual abuses.
There are many side-effects associated with the use of Ecstasy. Hyperthermia and dehydration are often associated with it in the near-term. Longer-term use can result in hyponatremia (an excessively low concentration of sodium in the blood) due to the heavy drinking of water to prevent dehydration, which saps the body of electrolytes. These symptoms can ultimately lead to brain swelling, seizures, and hypertension. When combined, these effects can be fatal.
Longer term, the effects of continued abuse of MDMA can mean brain lesions and brain damage, reduced gray matter (brain size), and cognitive impairment.
