A Dose of Hope

Dr. Dan Engle and Alex Young

MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD is in the final stages of FDA testing. Clinical trials are reporting a 70 percent cure rate for a condition that claims thousands of lives globally every day—hundreds in the US alone.

But until it’s fully legalized, MDMA is still a Schedule I drug, saddled with years of misunderstanding, misinformation, and misuse.

In this groundbreaking, informative, and easy-to-read book, Dr. Dan Engle shows you the treatment through the eyes of a fictional patient so you can see how it works without ever setting foot in a doctor’s office.

Follow in-depth conversations between doctor and patient, learn about the history of MDMA-assisted therapy, understand how and why it helps, and experience the process for yourself—without ever having to take anything.

The treatment presented here is a synthesis of the real experiences and stunning results happening today in trials around the world. Whether you or a loved one suffer from PTSD, or you just want to heal something that’s keeping you from living your best life, don’t miss A Dose of Hope.

Press & Praise

Rick Doblin, Ph.D., Founder and Executive Director of MAPS

I have known Dr. Dan for many years, and he is deeply knowledgeable about all subjects surrounding plant medicine, psychedelics, and other forms of healing with non-ordinary states of consciousness. 'A Dose of Hope' is a terrific book that helps demystify the process of MDMA-assisted therapy in a clear and compelling manner. Dr. Dan's book will become a key public education resource as legal access by prescription to MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD is likely by early 2023.

Aubrey Marcus, Founder of ONNIT, NYT best selling author of Own the Day

A lot of health care practitioners throw around the word "holistic", but no one I have ever met embodies this ideal like Dr. Dan Engle. Physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness are all inexorably woven together into his practice. He is the perfect person to write the book about one of the most significant advancements in wellness we have ever seen in our lifetime. To understand what is possible with MDMA assisted psychotherapy, both personally and collectively, this book is a must read.
