What We Treat
Club Drug Addiction
Club drugs are a type of drug most commonly used among young adults in social environments, specifically nightclubs, bars, raves, or concerts. Used recreationally, regular club drug use can lead to a range of serious issues, including physical and psychological dependence. Additionally, because club drugs are frequently combined with unknown additives, even one-time use can result in serious, health-related consequences, including fatality.

What are Club Drugs?
Club drugs are substances commonly used at nightclubs, music festivals, raves, and dance parties to enhance social intimacy and sensory stimulation. Because of the prevalence of these drugs at dance parties, raves, and nightclubs, they often are referred to as club drugs.
The most prominent club drugs are MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine), also known as ecstasy; gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB); flunitrazepam (Rohypnol); and ketamine (Ketalar). These drugs are popular because of their low cost and convenient distribution as small pills, powders, or liquids. Often described as “entactogens,” club drugs produce a sense of physical closeness, empathy, and euphoria.
Types of Club Drug
There are several distinct types of club drugs. More often than not, club drugs are combined with other chemical substances, predominantly alcohol.
- MDMA — MDMA, also known as molly or ecstasy, is structurally similar to amphetamine and mescaline. However, it is not as stimulating or addictive as amphetamine and is considered much less likely to cause psychosis than LSD and other potent hallucinogens. MDMA and molly refer to the drug in its purest form, while ecstasy is combined with adulterants.
- GHB and Rohypnol — GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyric acid) and Rohypnol are potent central nervous system depressants most frequently used for their intoxicating effects.
- Ketamine — Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic that produces dream-like tranquility and disinhibition in small doses. In large doses, ketamine can cause dissociation.
