This is an exended interview with a survivor of treatment resistant post traumatic stress disorder, also known as PTSD. Karen says she is cured of her PTSD now, thanks to a treatment that includes lots of psychotherapy, plus three times when she took a dose of the psychoactive chemical, MDMA. MDMA is classed as a federally illegal drug. However the FDA has approved the drug for use in clinical trials of an intense psychotherapy protocol that includes MDMA. Now here’s Karen’s story.
