Can the use of MDMA to help treating alcohol addiction make an impact in psychiatric treatment methods?

Dr George says that it is important to note that “every chronic medical condition can relapse.” But “it doesn’t mean that treatment does not work. They just go back to learning again how to prevent a future relapse.” Referring to the MDMA trial, he adds that “the most important thing is the therapy, not the MDMA.

Twenty patients will be recruited through the recreational drug and alcohol services in Bristol. Participants will be heavy drinkers who consumer an equivalent of five bottles of wine a day and have relapsed into alcoholism in a recurring manner despite other treatments. After undergoing physical detox, patients will be given two standard therapy sessions without the drug. This is followed by an all-day session where a high dose of MDMA (99.9%) will be given in capsule form. During this session, some time will be spent talking to a therapist and the rest of the time, lying down with an eye-mask in a state of quiet meditation.
