Last modified: Sunday, 31. May 2009 - 2:02 pm
Ecstasy has not been proven safe or effective for any medical use, and it is not available by prescription. In the 1970s, ecstasy was used as an aid in psychotherapy because the drug reportedly could intensify the patient’s feelings of openness and intimacy in revealing deeply personal feelings; however it was declared illegal a decade later. There continue to be supporters of ecstasy use in psychotherapy and for treatment of stress and anxiety disorders.
