PROGRAM NOTES:

Date this lecture was recorded: August 31, 2018.

Today’s podcast features the 2018 Palenque Norte Lecture given by Rick Doblin, the president of MAPS. In addition to a detailed description of the interaction between MAPS and the Veterans Administration, Rick also gives a detailed account of the now concluded Phase 2 study along with an explanation of how they believe MDMA works to relieve the symptoms of PTSD. As he says about the efficacy of the process he says, “What we found at twelve months is that people keep getting better. So at twelve months, two-thirds of the people no longer have PTSD. And of the one-third who still have PTSD, most of them have had a clinically significant reduction in symptoms, even though they still have PTSD.”

[NOTE: The following quotations are by Rick Doblin.]

“I think we can look very carefully in our society and see that a lot of the people who are suffering but who might try to block what we’re trying to do, if we really look deep into their suffering, a lot of them are really wanting us to succeed.”

“What we found at twelve months is that people keep getting better. So at twelve months, two-thirds of the people no longer have PTSD. And of the one-third who still have PTSD, most of them have had a clinically significant reduction in symptoms, even though they still have PTSD.”
