For a year now researchers have been studying if the active ingredient in Ecstasy, MDMA, could help social anxiety in adults who have autism. The researchers say that MDMA is safer than using street Ecstasy or Molly because it is in its purest form as MDMA.

The street drugs are usually mixed with other drugs that are more harmful to the user. They want to see if the use of MDMA can reduce the fear of being in social situations and make the adults more comfortable with people around. This is not a treatment for autism itself, just to help with social anxiety.

Ecstasy is a popular rave or party drug because it increases a person’s energy and makes them feel euphoria. In the abstract of the study the researchers have said that “MDMA’s capacity to help people talk openly and honestly about themselves and their relationships, without defensive conditioning intervening.”

Along side with trying to see if it will help with social anxiety researchers have also been looking into if it helps those who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Researchers are still looking for participants that meet a special criteria.

MDMA has been illegal in the United States since the 1980’s.
