Is ecstasy a potential cure for PTSD?
A team of psychiatrists and psychologists in Vancouver will be testing the efficacy of medical-grade 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA)—commonly known as ecstasy–in treating trauma.
Mark Haden, a UBC public health adjunct professor, is chairman of the Canadian branch of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), which is conducting the study. He became interested in the use of psychedelics as possible treatments when a former patient recovered from heroin addiction by using a hallucinogenic substance.
