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."
