> Has "Blue Dreams" changed the way you think about treating depression?

"Blue Dreams" and Julie Holland's "Ecstasy: The Complete Guide" and Ayelet Waldman's "A Really Good Day" have changed my mind about treating depression.

I think MDMA sounds especially promising. Some therapists are using MDMA during marathon talk therapy sessions, saying that they can accomplish years' worth of talk therapy in a single afternoon.

> How would one go about getting and using psilocybin?

Slater is vague about how she got to meet a therapist who uses psilocybin to treat depression. Slater was only given the therapist's first name and her address.

It's possible that the FDA will approve MDMA for PTSD by 2021. If this happens, it's possible that therapists will be able to prescribe it off-label to treat other psychiatric conditions.
