Ecstasy (methylenedioxymethamphetamine) has a reputation as a party drug. Also known as MDMA, Ecstasy allows the users to dance and party all night while feeling the psychoactive effects of the drug. While the drug use normally starts as a weekend party drug, the effects of long term use can be life changing, if not deadly. Common names on the streets include “hug drug”, “beans” and “love drug”. Research suggests that this drug is neurotoxic.
How to Spot an Ecstasy Addiction?
