What does the future of psychedelic medicine look like?

MAPS Founder and Executive Director, Rick Doblin, Ph.D., will hold an intimate conversation about the path to legalizing psychedelic medicine and his vision of a post-prohibition world. Leading MAPS researchers will also join in the conversation.

MAPS is currently concluding Phase 2 clinical trials of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy as a treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)—with promising results—and preparing for Phase 3, the final series of trials of this pioneering research before FDA approval. The Phase 3 trials will require more clinical sites, more therapists, more patients, and more support.

How will we realize a “psychedelic future”?

With your support, we are blazing a trail towards a world where psychedelics are accepted as legitimate tools and medicines. Our final phase of research is crucial to realizing the ultimate approval of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy as a legal treatment, which could radically shift policy and public perception. We are opening the doors to explore new models for healing trauma and personal growth.

We can realize this future together. Proceeds from the dinner benefit MAPS’ research and education programs.

Live music and special guests to be announced.
