The NuMind therapeutic approach uses MDMA-assisted psychotherapy as a catalyst for overcoming PTSD and other mental health challenges. Our protocol begins before the patient receives MDMA and continues long after your treatment.
MDMA is a proven entactogen—a drug that can increase self-awareness and empathy. It has also been reported to increase closeness between patient and therapist, relaxation, motivation to engage with therapy and introspective thought. In addition, it reduces depression and anxiety, which can help the therapist navigate the underlying trauma without causing emotional distress.
We use the MAPS protocol, developed to serve as a foundation for controlled clinical trials, MDMA-assisted psychotherapy.
Our MDMA Treatment Process:
Upon approval of your confidential qualifier, a Guest Experience Partner will be assigned to you for one-on-one assistance at your own pace, discussing your history, current concerns, and treatment goals. They will also assist in making travel arrangements to NuMind Treatment Academy. Upon arrival, one of our Health Care Professionals will continue with the preparation phase, including medical assessments to ensure no physiological issues prevent treatment. Licensed physicians and ICU-certified nurses oversee the onsite pre-treatment phase, ensuring safety and comfort, while onsite counselors provide individual preparation sessions.
NuMind Healthcare professionals will provide three 8-hour therapy sessions using MDMA, spaced 3-5 weeks apart. Typically, you will receive a half-dose of MDMA two hours after the initial dose to extend its effects. The program aims to guide you in processing emotions under trained psychotherapists. MDMA creates optimal conditions for processing difficult emotions, lasting up to eight hours, with two trained therapists guiding you through revisiting past events. Preparation and integration sessions consolidate your therapeutic gains. In between, and in concert with your in-person sessions, you will receive 12 virtual-therapy sessions without MDMA.
This phase of the treatment includes several non-drug therapy sessions, which aid in preparing the client mentally, emotionally, and physically for their return home while incorporating the insights and experiences from the MDMA-assisted sessions into their daily life.
Off-site Aftercare Support
A supported integration following treatment has been proven to aid in long-term success. The off-site aftercare phase is a process that includes personalized support from your Guest Experience Partner and designated treatment therapists to help you accomplish your treatment goals after returning home. This will include regular check-ins and ongoing virtual support post-treatment.
We would like to acknowledge the incredible work of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). We are thrilled to see their groundbreaking clinical trials using MDMA in the treatment of PTSD recognized with the ‘Breakthrough Status’ designation by the FDA.
