It's no secret that psychedelic drugs have the ability to cast light on the miraculous reality hidden within our psyche. Yet while LSD and MDMA (better known as Ecstasy) have proven extraordinarily effective in treating anxiety disorders such as PTSD, the drugs remain illegal for the millions who might benefit from them. Award-winning journalist Tom Shroder follows three men- Rick Doblin, arguably the world's most visible advocate for MDMA therapy; Michael Mithoefer, a practicing therapist whose research has proved wildly successful for patient suffering from trauma; and Nicholas Blackston, a former Marine who served in Iraq and has found refuge from his own PTSD in the controversial medication MDMA. Fascinating and information, Acid Testis at once a personal story of intertwining lives against an epic backdrop and a compelling argument for the unprecedented healing properties of these long-outlawed drugs. 'A book that should start a long-overdue national conversation, and someday may help to end a lot of unnecessary suffering.' Dave Barry'Strangely wonderful...... .Acid Testmakes a convincing case that such therapies ought to be prescribable by all practicing psychiatrists.' The Washington Post'Empty your mind of any preconceptions about psychedelic drugs and enjoy a fascinating trip through the politics, science, history, and promise of these controversial chemical compounds.'
