Investigators are conducting a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-site phase 3 study of the efficacy and safety of manualized MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for the treatment of severe posttraumatic stress disorder. MDMA is a Schedule 1 controlled substance. This study is sponsored by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), a non-profit, membership-based research and educational organization and is being conducted as a pharmaceutical trial under the jurisdiction of the US FDA. MAPS’ mission is 1) to treat conditions for which traditional medicines provide limited relief—such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), pain, drug dependence, and anxiety and depression associated with end-of-life issues—by developing psychedelics and marijuana into prescription medicines; 2) to cure people by building a network of clinics where treatments can be provided; and 3) to educate the public honestly about the risks and benefits of these drugs.
