The Lucas Rockwood Show

MDMA, better known as the party drug ecstasy, has been legalized in Australia and will soon be approved in The United States for use in psychotherapy. While much of the research pushing for legalization has focused on post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), its potential use in couples therapy also holds great promise. My guest on this week’s podcast wrote his master’s thesis on the therapeutic uses of MDMA in the 1980s and has been at the forefront of drug-assisted counseling ever since.

Listen and learn:

  • How an MDMA-assisted session for couples can fasttrack therapy
  • Legal and safety concerns
  • Fentanyl risks and the safety promises of prescription options
  • Why couples should aim to share two appreciation comments daily
  • How to utilize the “acknowledgement formula” to resolve conflict in your relationship

NOTE: MDMA is illegal in most jurisdictions worldwide. This podcast is not meant to endorse purchase or consumption of illicit drugs. Even when legal and prescribed, there are real risk and dangers that must be considered before using any drug.
