Ecstasy-Assisted Therapy for Social Anxiety?

Stephanie Miller's curator insight, March 25, 2014 4:32 AM

   Ecstasy may no longer be only for raves and ragers. Studies have shown that the drug could possibly help those with social anxiety and even post-traumatic stress disorder. The drug has exhibited an influence on reducing fear of emotional harm while also creating feelings of social connections. Pure MDMA has recently been approved for testing its benefits on 12 adult autistic men suffering from social anxiety disorder. 

   Although this testing may prove that pure MDMA could be used to treat this disorder, I wonder how that outcome would affect possible substance abuse. Many people with social anxiety already use substances such as alcohol as an escape, and I fear that hearing ecstasy as a treatment could encourage some people to get the drug from the streets in order to avoid a visit from a licensed psychiatrist. This could lead to them creating a dependence on the contaminated and dangerous drug rather than the pure, medicated form.
