Altering Perceptions

By: Richard Shrubb

Mental Health Today

Mental Health Today examines how psychedelic research has changed over the last fifty years. The article profiles Dr. Ben Sessa, a psychiatrist who studied the safety of MDMA for the United Kingdom’s Advisory Council for the Misuse of Drugs in 2009. Psychedelic research is also being done in the United States by MAPS, with MDMA-assisted psychotherapy as a promising treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Sessa believes that “one has to weigh up the dangers of a drug being used therapeutically against the benefits it brings.”
