During the Intake phase, a substance abuse history is created and a treatment plan is tailored for the patient's individual needs.
Detox is the challenging but critical process of flushing drugs, alcohol and other toxins from your system in a carefully measured fashion. Recovery is a lifelong process, but one you will have prepared for during your time in rehab. I’m sorry Jessica, but if your experience with MDMA involved a safe, mellow high with no hangover, you were sold some bunk stuff. After the come down, your brain should be temporarily depleted of serotonin, making you feel depressed or down for the next day or so. Your first clue that this will mess you up is hidden in its chemical name methylenedioxy-methamphetamine — as in the main ingredient used in crystal methamphetamine and ADHD medication. DanceSafe, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting safety at raves, music festivals and nightclubs, classifies MDMA as a stimulant, like cocaine or speed.
When all of those MDMA molecules get sucked up, the transporters get overloaded with too many chemicals, and they start to release serotonin back into your brain.
People realized that MDMA was perfect for dancing around the time it came to prominence in the 1970s. In November 2013, Massive Advisors LLC estimated that the EDM business was worth a combined $20 billion, in a whitepaper released at the Amsterdam Dance Event music conference.
That includes concert tickets to major festivals like Tomorrowland, Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) and Ultra Music Festival.
This is the standard price range for music festivals like Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Ultra Music Festival and HARD Summer.
Meanwhile the world’s highest paid DJ’s like Calvin Harris, Tiёsto and David Guetta are making six figures per appearance. No wonder Robert FX Sillerman dropped $1 billion in 2012 to acquire almost every festival production company in the US, officially transforming EDM festivals into a big, publicly traded business. According to the DEA National Drug Assessment Summary of 2013, the amount of MDMA seized by law enforcement has dropped from, “1,118,000 in 2009 to 949,000 in 2010 and again to 922,000 in 2011.” About 10% of law enforcement officers surveyed reported high levels of availability in their area. DEA Spokesman Rusty Payne told USA Today that when law enforcement tests seized drugs that are marked as molly, they often turn out to be another substance.
Since it’s impossible to tell what’s in a pill or powder without either taking it, or analyzing it with a chemistry kit, it is easy for drug dealers to sell fake stuff even to experienced users. Insomniac Events emphasized health and wellness for EDC 2013, including a zero-tolerance drug policy. At the same time, the website recommended that ravers dress for the Las Vegas heat, and stay hydrated at one of many water stations placed throughout the event. If you wish to connect with non-sponsor centers, you can browse top-rated listings, visit our homepage and browse by state, or visit SAMHSA. This would push the date later into June, perhaps to accommodate college schedules and even hope for better (less windy) weather in Las Vegas. The article also reports that Insomniac reserved the Speedway for the following weekend in June as well in the event that they expand EDC into two weekends, similar to Coachella and now Ultra. Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) is Insomniac’s flagship festival and was winner of the Best International Dance Festival award at the 2011 Ibiza DJ Awards.
The highly anticipated return of Electric Daisy Carnival kicked off last night for a third year at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. With attendance numbers estimated at 115,000, all 50 states and 46 countries were represented in the 17th annual celebration of music and fellowship.
Last year’s experience was quite the opposite, with some waiting in traffic for hours to enter, and even more to exit.
Exclusive routes for shuttles through neighboring Nellis Air Force Base, improved flow through parking lots, and police and volunteer support can all be credited for the improvement. We saw some preliminary photos of the stage designs (though we chose not to share them to not spoil the surprise), but seeing them for the first time in person felt like finding presents under the tree on Christmas morning.

This year’s main stage (Kinetic Field) takes a break from the usual LED screens backdrop and instead features a giant 440-foot-wide bright-eyed owl surrounded by towering 3D mushrooms, daisies, and other psychedelic characters. The new Basscon stage is as equally impressive, featuring a gas masked-clad fellow holding a bouquet of flowers atop a massive clock. EDC is well known for its impressive pyro displays but last night’s were nearly continuous. Eight art cars are spread across the grounds, but we stumbled upon an impromptu parade of sorts later in the evening. The art installations, art cars, and costumed performers create a unique immersive experience as you move among the massive stages. Two wedding chapels are setup atop a balcony in the center of the race track offering legal marriages and friendship commitment ceremonies as well.
It’s rumored Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella and girlfriend Holly Madison will choose to tie the knot at EDC this weekend as well. About UsElectronic Vegas covers the ever growing Electronic Dance Music (EDM) event scene in Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the U.S. Home to some of the most lavish clubs, hotels, and casinos in the world, DJs are taking up residencies at an unprecedented rate, making Vegas a perfect destination for any electronic music lover. After having two extremely successful years at Las Vegas Motor Speedway since moving from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in 2011, Insomniac, the production company who puts on the amazing three day Electric Daisy Carnival music festival, says that EDC 2014 may not happen due to Las Vegas Live Entertainment Tax issues. Over the past two years when this event has taken place, Nevada’s Live Entertainment Tax has not been applied to massive events taking place outdoors such as EDC.
If you haven’t been to EDC at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, I highly recommend grabbing your three-day pass for EDC 2013 before the event is gone for good. EDC Las Vegas, one of the largest EDM festivals in the US, is taking over Las Vegas Speedway this weekend and LessThan3 and 7UP are bringing the experience to anyone not able to attend.
This is where physical and mental healing and your therapy begins in a peaceful, relaxing setting. The ignorance of the unexperienced drug user seems to be part of what propagates the myth that pure MDMA is a harmless substance. The effects of molly include an uncontrollable grinding of the teeth and jaw, intensely heightened physical sensations, and seeing light trails. This results in a sudden flood of serotonin that creates intense but temporary feelings of well-being and love. The heightened feeling of energy and euphoria was ideal for dancing at the disco because it made you feel extremely sociable and friendly, but without the dangerous side effects of cocaine. The DEA reports that between 2009 and 2012 the number of ecstasy related arrests, emergency room visits and deaths increased over 100%, which happens to coincide with the rise of the electronic dance music (EDM) festival. But also nightclub profits, DJ salaries, music production equipment, rave clothing, flashing lights and laser beams, fog machines, disco balls, glow sticks and even music sales. It is a three-day event, so you also have to book a hotel in the Vegas area, plus a shuttle pass, locker fees, food and refreshments.
It is common for one fan to spend thousands of dollars to travel across the country, or the world, for a destination EDM festival. The Nightclub & Bar Top 100 Club list shows that the most profitable nightclubs in the world by far are the EDM nightspots of Las Vegas. They often find a designer drug called methylone or bath salts, which is marketed as a legal alternative to ecstasy.
In the US, the substance has been related to over 100 hundred deaths each year between 2009 and 2012. The festival relocated from LA to Las Vegas in 2011, after a 15-year-old girl overdosed in 2010. There were four air conditioned cooling down lounges, as well as medical stations staffed with professionals.
Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella hinted at a date change in numerous Tweets earlier in the year.

After a 10 year run in Los Angeles, the festival expanded to three days in 2011 and moved to Las Vegas after signing a 10 year contract with the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He's always had a love and passion for music of all types, but didn't discover the music festival scene and community until moving to Southern California during his early post-college years. These tangible elements, similar in style to what we’ve seen at Tomorrowland, bring a much-needed sense of personality and emotion to the stage. The Basspod stage has grown in size and features a 180-degree design, while the Cosmic Meadow stage uses LED screen-glazed cubes to dazzle fans. Firework shows originated from various locations around the track throughout the evening instead of all at once to wrap up the evening. Crowds parted as several of the art cars and a handful of the 500 roaming theatrical performers marched through the grounds. Unfortunately, the Nevada State Legislature is revisiting the policies of LET to possibly start applying the taxation to outdoor events. Our contributors and followers share a passion for live music, the festival experience, and the festival community.
The 20th Anniversary sets a milestone for Insomniac as they celebrate with the largest electronic music event ever. If this stuff doesn’t happen to you after about forty minutes then you just ate a vitamin, or worse.
The chemical MDMA mimics serotonin, so when you eat or snort it, your brain absorbs the chemical using the same transporters.
In contrast, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates there are 100,000 alcohol related deaths each year, and another 100,000 annual tobacco related deaths. And a 22-year-old woman jumped off the balcony of her 27th floor hotel after taking ecstasy. That same event, 226 attendees received emergency medical treatment, and there were 114 arrests.
A team of volunteers dubbed ‘Ground Control’ were trained to recognize the signs of MDMA overdose and alcohol poisoning.
About 600 attendees called for medical help, but only a handful were actually hospitalized. He returned to his roots in the Midwest in 2011 and has since been determined to share the magic and beauty of the music scene with as many as possible.
Once exited from the highway, event traffic flowed freely into the parking lots with little to no waiting.
We know Bassrush will bring their massive stage setup & adrenaline pumping sound system. If you take a large enough dose of MDMA you may start to hallucinate, including seeing or hearing things, panic attacks and blackouts. Ninety percent of the people who do overdose on ecstasy have taken it in combination with other drugs, such as opiates or alcohol.
The lineup should be stacked with exciting acts that are so unpredictable that you should get your ticket immediately when they go on sale. Two college students died at Electric Zoo New York 2013, forcing promoters to cut the event short.
So be prepared to drop a few bills on the ticket but the experience is the most amazing thing ever you will ever witness.
