Ecstasy Helps Treat PTSD Patients, Trial Finds

(CBS) People suffering from the agony of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may one day find relief with Ecstasy.

A small clinical trial found that 80 percent of participants treated with a combination of methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) and psychotherapy no longer showed signs of PTSD, with no serious side effects.

Three people who also said the disorder prevented them from going to work were able to return to their jobs after the treatment.

The study is the first completed clinical trial evaluating MDMA as a therapeutic adjunct since it was criminalized in 1985 owing to recreational use of the drug, known by its street name Ecstasy. </em>

Which makes this story even sadder.
