The benefits of MDMA therapy in autism
The main effect of MDMA on 99% of people is the very positive mood and lowering of anxiety and self-protection. This gives the following benefits during the MDMA session in persons with autism:
From a sense of security, social cues that were previously perceived as threatening become neutral. Because of the reduced degree of social avoidance behavior, more room for connection is created.
Self-awareness is lowered so the idea of being too present for others fades. From less self-awareness and less need to come across well, more peace and connection is created.
The lowered anxiety and positive state of mind allows memories to be retrieved better without being too painful. This allows for better processing of traumatic experiences.
The emotional experience on MDMA allows for a greater understanding of one's own emotions and those of others. Some individuals with autism report being better at recognizing emotions in others.
The improved mood may still be present a few days after the session. This is also called the 'afterglow'. During this state, conversations with friends and family can aid in the therapeutic process.
