Israel:  Fourth Subject Treated

On June 15, 2014, the fourth subject was treated in our ongoing Israeli study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for 10 subjects with chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD. The first subject was treated in April 2013. This study is being conducted at the Beer Yaakov Mental Hospital in Israel and led by Principal Investigator Moshe Kotler, M.D. Recent and ongoing violence in Israel has called renewed attention to the importance of conducting research for PTSD in Israel. In an email to MAPS Executive Director Rick Doblin, Ph.D., Israeli study coordinator Dafna Bornstein-Lavi reported, “Again I’m under the table in Beer Yaakov with missiles flying over my head.”
