Quantitative Data Analysis: Statistical Techniques


This article is a systematic study that evaluates the efficacy of MDMA on the treatment of PTSD.  The article cites different studies on the treatment of PTSD using pharmaceuticals, psychotherapy, or a combination of the two as a way of building baseline data that the results of the MDMA treatment can be compared to.  The data from these different studies are presented statistically in t-test format.  The objective of this article is to examine the impact of  3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) on PTSD and try to determine if this drug holds any promise as a method of treatment for the disorder (White, 2014).  The article examines trials that span from 1960-2014, but the article itself was first published in The Annals of Pharmacotherapy in 2014.  The summary of the information presented in the article was interpreted with the use of information taken from Counseling research: Quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods (2014) to ensure that the interpretation of the data in the article is as accurate as possible.  The specific pharmacology of MDMA is discussed as well as the effects of the drug on the user.  There is a discussion on the potential negative effects of the drug and precautions that should be taken.  The findings suggest that there is potential for MDMA assisted therapy to be an effective form of treatment for PTSD, but there is a need for much more research on the topic before that conclusion can be confidently stated.  This quantitative study is useful as starting point that further research into this topic can be built upon.  Perhaps the most valuable information presented in the article is what methods of MDMA assisted treatment were not effective.  Since this information is supported by statistical data, it serves as a guide to future researchers on methods to avoid and will, hopefully, produce more meaningful gains in the research moving forward.
