This is a major, major issue in policing although it gets very little attention. Nobody wants to talk about it.I don't know what the definitive solution is. But one answer might lie in using MDMA during psychotherapy sessions to treat post-traumatic stress disorder. Like alcohol, MDMA increases trust and reduces fear. Unlike alcohol, there is no memory loss and no hangover. Therefore MDMA may be appropriate for certain groups - like police officers and soldiers - who tend to have a deep, institutional distrust of therapists.In my short career in law enforcement, too many officers I know have committed suicide. It is an absolute tragedy.
