MDMA (3, 4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine) goes by a number of different street names, including Molly, ecstasy, and XTC. MDMA is a synthetic drug that has stimulant and hallucinogenic properties. The drug was initially used in the treatment of a number of psychological issues, and there is still ongoing research investigating its potential utility in this context, but the drug is currently not used medicinally.

MDMA became a popular rave or club drug with younger people due to its reputation as a drug that can enhance sociability, empathy, and feelings of euphoria as well as its hallucinogenic properties. These effects have been substantiated by a number of research studies, including a 2014 article in the journal Psychopharmacology. MDMA’s abuse reached its peak in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Signs of addiction to ecstasy or MDMA:

  • A pattern of maladaptive use of Molly that leads to significant distress in the individual and/or significant issues with everyday functioning

  • Frequent strong urges to use Molly in various situations, such as stressful situations, situations where the individual is happy, situations where the individual is socializing, etc.

  • Using the drug in situations where it is dangerous to do so

  • Giving up important activities as a result of MDMA use

  • Failing to fulfill important obligations as a result of Molly use

  • The development of significant tolerance to Molly

  • Demonstrating issues controlling the use of MDMA that include the following:

    • Even though the person has formally stated they wish to stop or cut down on their use of MDMA, they cannot do so.

    • The person spends significant amounts of time trying to get MDMA, using it, or recovering from its use.

    • The person continues to use MDMA even though its use results in significant issues with their job, personal relationships, school, and/or other important areas.

    • Even though the person recognizes that their use of MDMA is resulting in psychological and/or physical problems, they continue to use the drug.
