On two of these (sessions three and seven), patients

were dose with open-label MDMA during a six-

Participants remain in the treatment

centre overnight after each drug-assisted session,

overseen by medically trained “night sitters”.

They are then seen the following morning and

telephone every day for the following six days

assess changes to mood, suicidal risk factors

and quality of sleep.

While the primary aim

of the study was to see whether the treatment

was safe and well tolerate, it found 11 participants

were drinking fewer than 14 units of alcohol

per week at the nine-month follow up.

This include nine people who were completely

abstinent, however three participants relapse

to drinking more than 14 units.

The researchers says the next step would be to

carry out another trial which would involve

participants being split into two groups at

random, with one given MDMA and the other

a placebo, to measure how effective the treatment is.
