Warning and a Cause for Concern: Ecstasy
By BM1(SW) J. Berrios
Navy Drug Resource Center

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NWS) — There is an alarming increase in ecstasy abuse in America and a slight increase in the Navy. Ecstasy is an illegal drug that is harmful and detectable by Navy drug screening labs. It is an amphetamine based drug with hallucinogenic properties.

One of the best ways to combat illicit drug use by Sailors is to stay informed and keep them informed. All commands are encouraged to provide additional training on this subject at the earliest opportunity.

A web site has been established to provide awareness training on Ecstasy. The web site is available at http://navdweb.spawar.navy.mil/. From this site, click on the "Ecstasy Awareness Training" icon for additional information. Additional links are provided at the site.red ribbon icon
