Dear Dr,

Thank you for your reply to my question about extasy. I think this is a horrible and dangerous drug. But how do I get my friend to stop using it? Is extasy addictive like cocaine? If someone wants to stop taking extasy, would they have to go to a rehabilitation clinic?

Bunny, the addiction to ecstasy isn’t as strong as that of hardcore drugs like heroin etc. if your friend wants top stop, he can just stop taking it without have to worry about serious withdrawal symptoms. If he can’t manage on his own, the best would be to contact SANCA. Good luck.
