Psychedelic research is a fascinating and important area. The human mind is the most powerful, enigmatic concept we know - it would be an injustice not to explore and learn more about it.

MAPS is a great organization that does excellent work in areas spanning a variety of issues. Most recently I got to participate in a teleconference of a presentation By Andrew Weil MD at a MAPS conference in California while I was at the Cannabis Therapeutics Conference in Rhode Island. MAPs soes an outstanding job of locating and disseminating critical information for policy makers. Keep up the great work

MAPS has been tremendously helpful and extremely informative. Their contact has been a real plus in my life. Their magazines are most helpful with photos of personnel and content.

the several years I have known about them and subscribed to their newsletters and also contacted Mr. Doblin personally and met with him at conventions.

I don't see a need for change - I donate what I can to help them succeed in bringing their important messages to those in need.

The learning experience has been very helpful

Kind and helpful and very knowledgeable.

Help so many more people, it would aid in their research greatly. They deserve more than they have received for their ongoing projects and future discoveries.

Ways to make it better...

they were fine - no improvement needed

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

government limitations and lack of funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Give to MAPS, read their work, get active if you can with their projects.

While attending a conference in San Francisco I heard a presentation from Dr. Doblin on the theraputic value of psychedelic drugs in controlled settings for patients who are troubled by traumatic memories or are fearful of dying. He made a forceful, logical case for the need to legalize research and treatment using these forbidden drugs, including cannabis. From hearing his message I am able to better make the case for legalization to my friends and neighbors.

MAPS has been investigating the medical use of ibogaine, a psychedelic drug which immediately stops withdrawal symptoms from opiate addiction. I received this treatment at a clinic where MAPS has been doing studies, and was asked to participate in one of those studies. The treatment was 100% successful. I was put on suboxone, a potent opiate, by my doctor as an off-label treatment for depression. When I tried to stop taking the drug because it wasn't working, I found that I was deeply addicted to the drug and could not get off of it. I made it twelve days on 0mg with no relief from the horrible physical withdrawal. At my doctor's urging I went back on suboxone. I then learned about ibogaine treatment, and two hours after ingesting the psychedelic, all symptoms were gone! I also benefited greatly from the psychedelic experience. As my experience shows, standard pharmaceutical drugs often harm people and research into alternatives must be undertaken. MAPS is at the forefront of promoting these alternative therapies.

See review above. I also depend on MAPS emails and their website to keep me abreast of developments in psychedelic research.

MAPS has the potential to transform our cultural concept of health and health delivery. In addition to focusing on correcting what is "wrong", the techniques MAPS investigates have the potential to inform and guide clients into potential personal and societal improvements.

I have been a member of MAPS for a year now and have been following their work. I am very impressed by this organization, and particularly Dr. Doblin. I feel they have contributed much to our understanding of psychedelics, and helped to open doors which had been shut for many years due mainly to fear and ignorance. I very highly recommend this organization and will continue to put my full support behind their mission.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Their fine literature and website.
