Innovative and effective psychedelic therapy for those looking for relief from a variety of mental health conditions.

what is MDMA used for medically?


Nashville MDMA therapy for depression, anxiety and PTSD

The FDA has designated MDMA therapy for PTSD a Breakthrough Therapy, as it has been known to significantly reduce symptoms and improve quality of life for individuals grappling with this debilitating disorder.  It is currently in Phase 3 clinical trials with the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), and the results have proven to be profound, showing the true value of MDMA as a psychedelic therapy medicine.

In addition to PTSD, medical uses of MDMA range from MDMA-assisted therapy for depression and anxiety, to MDMA therapy for eating disorders, providing new paths for people struggling with these conditions and more.

With ongoing research and clinical trials, MDMA-assisted therapy presents a promising frontier in mental health treatment, offering hope and relief to those in need.

MDMA couples therapy

MDMA couples therapy was the first potential use case for MDMA-assisted therapy back in the 1970s-80s. Frontiers in Psychology suggests that MDMA can be harnessed to facilitate interpersonal healing and growth due to its affect on:

  • Empathy
  • Communication
  • Perception of social connection and support
  • Non-avoidance
  • Openness
  • Attachment and safety
  • Bonding and social intimacy
  • Relationship satisfaction

As MDMA-assisted therapy trials take place and legal frameworks evolve over time, couples will be able to explore this innovative approach to healing in a guided and supportive environment led by both a male and a female MDMA therapist.

MDMA assisted psychotherapy (MAP) FAQs

Is MDMA Therapy FDA approved?

While awaiting MDMA Therapy FDA approval, select therapy practices may use MDMA treatment outside of a clinical trial through the FDA Expanded Access program.  This program is intended for patients with serious or life-threatening conditions who do not have any promising treatment options. 

Dedicated to offering our patients all opportunities for mental wellness, our Nashville MDMA Therapy Clinic has already applied to participate in the Expanded Access program and plans to offer this treatment to qualifying patients by end-of-year.
