#9: MDMA (Dr. Ben Sessa) Molly, Ecstasy and MDMA--different names for the same drug. MDMA is no longer restricted to underground rave culture. It is finding its way to the Dr.&apos;s office and the therapist&apos;s couch. And it appears to be an incredibly effective tool of psychotherapy. Dr. Ben Sessa has called MDMA the &quot;antibiotic of psychotherapy.&quot; He joins me to explain why it works so well as a therapeutic tool. We discuss addiction and treatment applications, Big T versus little t trauma and their connection to self-medication, cannabis as a replacement for other drugs, and how much it costs to produce legal MDMA (spoiler alert: its a lot!)I will also cover the history of MDMA production, legality and public perception.
Dr. Ben Sessa - Why we need a curative psychiatry. What if some people undergoing psychedelic assisted therapy rather have a picture of Manchester United or Britney Spears on the wall, instead of a buddha and yoga poses? Is this a question of class, just a different idea of spirituality and power objects? This is my favourite topic in the episode with Ben Sessa today. Dr. Ben Sessa is consultant psychiatrist, psychedelic therapist and chief medical officer at Awakn Life Sciences , UK’s first on-the-high-street provider of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy. Awakn is researching, developing and delivering evidence-based psychedelic medicine to treat addiction and other mental health conditions, and is aiming to open 15 to 20 clinics across the UK and EU in the next 24 months. Patients will be able to self-refer or be referred by their GP (including NHS). Ben focuses on MDMA-assisted therapies, since the substance is further along in the research and legal processes then psilocybin.Though in the meantime, Ben and his team work also with Ketamine as a therapy tool. The need for psychedelic assisted therapy seems higher then ever. Ben tells me, 30 to 40 % of the British population is drinking in a harmful bracket now in the last 12 month of the pandemic. We talk about rather different ways of using psychedelics like ketamine for addiction, MDMA for obesity or psilocybin for anorexia, something Ben, as a fan of creative psychopharmacology, is interested in. We also address what happens, if depression and anti-depressants can become part your identity and how you might be able to get rid of your own old stories about yourself with the support of psychedelic assisted therapy.

Dr Ben Sessa - Episode 156 Dr Ben Sessa is a British Psychiatrist, author and leader in the research of MDMA use in psychotherapy. We discuss this innovative approach to mental health, the stigma surrounding MDMA, PTSD treatment, addiction and much more.
MDMA: The Empathetic Approach To Addiction w/ Dr. Ben Sessa Our understanding of the direct connection between addictive behavior and psychological trauma is now manifesting in the use of MDMA for psychotheraputic treatment. A more scientifically based, as well as empathetic, approach to treating traumatized drug addicts and individuals labeled "criminals" under our current justice system will move our culture towards a more positive and empathetic paradigm where these individuals can receive the treatment they need and deserve.

Dr. Ben Sessa is leading the first clinical trials of MDMA for psychotherapy in the U.K.

#83 | MDMA: Revolution In Mental Health w/ Dr. Ben Sessa Dr. Ben Sessa is a consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist, and is currently leading the first clinical trials for the therapeutic use of MDMA in a psychiatric setting in the United Kingdom. As Ben goes over in this episode, the way the psychedelic compound MDMA works on the brain of an individual very dramatically allows them to process and discuss extremely traumatic experiences and effectively work through them. MDMA, in a therapeutic setting, shows enormous potential, and as Ben stated in his TED talk and elsewhere, MDMA may be as revolutionary to psychiatry as antibiotics were to modern medical practice.

The use of MDMA, as well as other psychedelics, is heavily prohibited under law, both within the United Kingdom as well as in the United States, and is very difficult and expensive to research to research for scientific and medical purposes. We discuss how the funding and research by organizations like MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies, an organization Ben works with) is currently opening the door for the therapeutic use of psychedelics, as well as potentially loosening the prohibitive laws surrounding the recreational use of the substances. We are currently experiencing a Psychedelic Renaissance, and Dr. Ben Sessa is one of the key figures in it.

Dr. Ben Sessa on Psychedelic Psychotherapy Dr. Ben Sessa is a psychiatrist from the United Kingdom, and currently a senior research fellow at Bristol, Cardiff and Imperial College London Universities, where he is conducting the UK's first clinical studies with MDMA-assisted therapy for the treatment of PTSD and alcohol dependence syndrome. Ben and I spoke at length about the current state of psychedelic psychotherapy, exploring topics such as success rates for clients, how to work with trauma in a psychedelic state, whether depression is in fact treatable by this method, ego loss, shedding negative personal narratives, and much more.
He is a stupendous voice of reason and is very much poised on the cutting edge of clinical research in regards to the sanctioned use of psychedelics for healing.
