Psych Congress: MDMA-Assisted Therapy Shows Promise in Treatment for Alcohol Addiction

Summary: The first study investigating MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for alcohol use disorder (AUD) was published by United Kingdom researchers in the Journal of Psychopharmacology. After an alcohol detoxification period, participants received two MDMA-assisted psychotherapy sessions. Researchers found that “MDMA-assisted psychotherapy can be safely delivered, is well tolerated, and has the potential to enhance and intensify the psychotherapeutic processes in the treatment of patients with AUD.”
