This Is What An MDMA Assisted Therapy Session Looks Like
by Arjun Walia
Below is a clip that recently aired on CBS television about a woman named Rachel Hope, who used MDMA-Assisted psychotherapy in a MAPS study to help overcome treatment-resistant PTSD. On the show, she describes how receiving MDMA as an adjunct to psychotherapy has completely eradicated her need for medication. She also went on to speak about the lasting benefits that the treatment has brought into her life, and even shares one of her MDMA-assisted psychotherapy sessions to illustrate her PTSD recovery process.
Current ‘psychedelic’ therapy research continues to gain more ground, and this is only within the past few years. For example, a study conducted two years ago concluded that LSD-assisted psychotherapy is effective in easing anxiety in dying patients. The double-blind, placebo-controlled study was sponsored by MAPS and conducted by Swiss psychiatrist Peter Gasser and his colleagues. You can view the results of that study and read it HERE.
Charles Grob, a psychiatrist and researcher at Harbor-U.C.L.A. Medical Center, completed a study in 2008 that showed the ability of psilocybin (the active component in psychedelic mushrooms) to ease the fear of death in 12 end-stage cancer patients. The study results, published in the Archives of General Psychiatry in 2011, concluded that the treatment could be done safely, and successfully reduced the anxiety and depression of all subjects about impending death.
