Back to the future: Psychedelic drugs in psychiatry

In an article for Harvard Health, Peter Grinspoon, MD, covers how psychedelics work, evidence for using psychedelics medicinally and the pros and cons. It’s an interesting read given his personal history with psychedelics, which dates back to when he was 14 and reading “Psychedelic Drugs Reconsidered.” He remembers the book urging “an open-minded reappraisal about the therapeutic potential of this class of drugs.” Anyone involved in psychedelics knows that not all conversations on the topic are open-minded. It’s why part of the mission to provide safe, legal access to psychedelics also includes an educational component. The more we can destigmatize psychedelics, the faster we can continue to push the renaissance forward. 

Psychedelic trips could soon be part of therapy — here’s what those sessions will look like

Have you ever wondered what psychedelic therapy looks like? This article provides an insight into that process. “You don’t just get thrown into it,” (Jennifer) Mitchell says. “It’s not Burning Man or something. It’s very thoughtful.” And it’s something we take very seriously at our Cedar Psychiatry clinics. We recently posted a blog about psychedelics and safety considerations. Read it here.
