MDMA-Assisted Therapy is a new and unique form of therapy that combines both psychotherapy and MDMA medication.
For the first time, the medication and psychotherapy are inseparable in treatment, and the psychotherapy is uniquely designed around the properties of the medication.
During a dosing session, MDMA provides a powerful and safe altered-state experience, during which one feels alert, full of positive emotions, relatively free of fear, open to sharing, and receptive to listening. Difficult traumatic memories are easily accessible and less distressing during the dosing session. The therapy then serves to integrate the emotional and cognitive insights from the dosing experience into everyday life. That’s why MDMA-Assisted Therapy is often called Integration Therapy.
At this time researchers are in the final stages of investigating whether MDMA-Assisted Therapy can cure trauma, and the results are very promising. In fact, the results are more promising than those of any other therapy or medication treatment to date. Rick Doblin, one of the pioneers of MDMA-Assisted Therapy once said, “If you were to invent a perfect medication to cure trauma, you would invent MDMA.” It looks like MDMA-Assisted Therapy for trauma might be legal and medically available in Canada and USA perhaps as soon as 2022.
New research is also looking at MDMA-Assisted Therapy for improving relationships. Again, results so far are very promising. The MDMA dosing session seems to create great conditions for people to openly communicate and deeply connect with each other. Integration sessions are designed to generalize this deeply connecting experience to everyday life. Stay tuned for our upcoming demonstration video on how Enhanced Therapy for relationships will work once it is legal and medically available.
Enhanced Relationship Therapy will not be for everyone, but if the preliminary research results hold up, it looks like it might have great therapeutic potential to heal relationships. But first things first. To make MDMA-Assisted Therapy legal and medically available, and to deliver it in an effective, ethical, and safe way, we need to conduct rigorous scientific research. Enhanced Therapy Institute is currently helping Canadian leading researcher Dr. Anne Wagner raise funds to conduct the world’s largest to-date study on MDMA-Assisted Therapy for couples. All funds we raise here go directly to support this very important study (with charitable receipt through MAPS Canada). We have donated and we encourage you to do the same.
