Question: Are There Effective Treatments for MDMA Abuse?
There are no specific treatments for MDMA abuse. The most effective treatments for drug abuse and addiction are cognitive behavioral interventions that are designed to help modify the patient's thinking, expectancies, and behaviors, and to increase skills in coping with life's stressors.
Drug abuse recovery support groups may be effective in combination with behavioral interventions to support long-term, drug-free recovery. There are currently no pharmacological treatments for dependence on MDMA.
Antidepressant medications might be helpful in combating the depressive symptoms frequently seen in MDMA users who have recently become abstinent.
