What is PTSD?

In some cases, those who have experienced a traumatic event, such as witnessing violence, surviving natural disasters, the death of loved ones, or sexual trauma, end up with anxiety that persists within their daily lives for months or even years. Coping with this stress, and even outright fear, can be debilitating


How to Treat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Typically, psychotherapy, medication, or a combination of the two are used to treat PTSD.

Many types of therapy are used to treat PTSD; however, trauma-focused psychotherapies provided by a mental healthcare professional are the most recommended. This enables patients to process their experiences of the traumatic event.

Psychedelics as Treatment for PTSD Shows Promise

On August 16, 2017, the FDA granted Breakthrough Therapy Designation to MDMA for the treatment of PTSD. Currently, MDMA is in phase 3 clinical trials for severe post-traumatic stress disorder treatment.

Psilocybin, the active ingredient in “magic mushrooms”, is beginning to be studied, after being granted breakthrough status for treatment of depression.

These promising developments may lead to greater options, and improved outcomes in the years ahead.
