About PTSD

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects 18% of our veterans, and 3% of the general population. Current treatments provide limited relief. Join us to find out about our promising therapy, and how substances that produce altered states can be catalysts for emotional and psychological healing.

In MAPS’ pilot study, 83% of the subjects receiving MDMA-assisted psychotherapy no longer met the criteria for PTSD; these benefits were sustained 3.8 years later.

About MAPS

The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) is a non-profit research and educational organization that develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana.

Founded in 1986, MAPS’ highest priority is to develop MDMA-assisted psychotherapy into a prescription drug for PTSD. Studies are underway in Boulder, Colorado; Charleston, South Carolina; Tel Aviv, Israel; and Vancouver, Canada.
