Trouw: Ecstasy against PTSD

Share This Post

In anticipation of our conference, which took place last weekend, newspaper Trouw published an article in which Joost Breeksema (president of the OPEN Foundation) is interviewed. Today the newspaper writes about the research into the treatment of PTSD with MDMA that Peter Oehen presented at the conference. 

Trouw: “The study showed that patients, after the treatment with MDMA, experienced less anxiety and were better able to tolerate negative emotions. Moreover, they experienced less emotional and physical pain.”
