Benzinga: Australian Psychiatrist Sues State of Victoria for Denying MDMA Treatment for Ailing Patient

Summary: Psychiatrist Dr. Eli Kotler is taking the issue of accessing MDMA-assisted therapy to the Australian courts! In Benzinga, David Carpenter reports that Dr. Kotler “initiated legal action against the Victorian Department of Health after his application for treatment was denied.” Highlighting the success of MAPS’ first Phase 3 trial of MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD, Carpenter explains that this lawsuit “comes at a time when clinical trials employing therapies using MDMA-assisted therapy—specifically to treat severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)—are seeing remarkably successful outcomes in the U.S., Canada and Israel.”
