Coming Home Well Podcast: MDMA Assisted Therapy for PTSD

Summary: In the podcast Coming Home Well, Michael Mithoefer, M.D., Senior Medical Director for Medical Affairs, Training and Supervision at MAPS Public Benefit Corporation (MAPS PBC), explains how he ended up pursuing psychedelic research with MAPS and educates a Veteran audience about MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD.

“It’s different from most drug studies in that we’re not just studying the drug,” says Dr. Mithoefer. “The hypothesis is that MDMA will catalyze therapy. In other words, it doesn’t cause it. It’s not the definitive treatment, but it’s a way of helping people have effective therapy.”
