In Addiction Counseling, Ecstacy Drug Abuse

Most young (or young at heart) adults that are into the club scene are familiar with substances commonly referred to as “club drugs“. These include drugs like MDMA , Rohypnol, GHB, and Ketamine which are generally attractive to club goers for their low cost and the intoxicating high that can intensify the clubbing experience. Street names for club drugs include XTC, X (MDMA), Special K, Vitamin K (Ketamine), soap (GHB), and roofies (Rohypnol).

Most of these drugs are central nervous system depressants, and a couple of them (GHB and Rohypnol) have become famous as date rape drugs or more recently in movies like “The Hangover.” GHB in combination with other drugs can cause nausea, breathing difficulites, and even comas (not to mention overdoses and death).

Ketamine Addiction (AKA “special K” or “vitamin K”) was developed as an anasthetic for both human and animal use, however, about 90% of the Ketamine currently produced and sold legally in the United States is intended for veterinary use. It can be injected or snorted and can cause dream-like states and hallucinations. In higher doses, users can experience delirium, amnesia, impaired motor function, high blood pressure, depression, and potentially fatal respiratory issues.
