Recently, CBS News reported that MDMA (the active ingredient in the club drug Ecstasy) showed incredible results as a treatment for PTSD.

According to ongoing research being done by the Multi-Disciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, MDMA assisted psychotherapy sessions eliminated PTSD in 68 percent of vets treated and significantly reduced in 32 percent.

Last Spring, we met a veteran who was part of these clinical trials, and he shared his experience on the podcast VetStory.


In the VetStory podcast “Is Ecstasy the cure for MDMA?” we hear about; his service, his attempted suicide and how a chance encounter led him to the MDMA therapy, which he credits with saving his life.
