Rachel Hope 

Transformation: From Trauma Victim to Public Advocate, Healing PTSD with MDMA Assisted Psychotherapy

Rachel Hope was one of the first participants treated for chronic, treatment resistant PTSD in the MAPS-sponsored clinical trial that used MDMA-assisted psychotherapy. Rachel will speak on her message of personal life-saving transformation from decades of crippling trauma, failed therapies and prescribed drugs to a sustained, drug free recovery through MDMA-assisted therapy, ecstatic dance, and public activism. The three MDMA-assisted psychotherapy sessions set the stage for Rachel to be her own healer.

This presentation will be the start of a national speaking tour, where Rachel intends to deliver the message of hope to individuals and organizations who will participate in the re-legalization of MDMA-assisted Psychotherapy and the Mental Health Revolution. You can support her efforts by recommending her presentation to organizations where she can be of influence or by supporting MAPS.

Rachel’s hope is that her story will inspire those impacted by trauma and mental illness to stay alive, ask for, and advocate for the re-legalization of MDMA for clinical use.

Rachel Hope was one of the first participants the MDMA assisted psychotherapy MAPS-sponsored clinical trial in 2005. This astounding recovery lead Rachel to become a pubic advocate. She has conducted many interviews & presentations about her recovery since then including CNN, The Doctors Show, Al Jazeera, Fox News, Vice, Marie Claire, Military Times, and much more. This experience is now part of her purpose in life. She now strives to make this world a safer, healthier, and more hopeful place for her children, those who are most vulnerable, and all who feel underserved among us.
