“Can psychedelic trips cure PTSD and other maladies?”


The Washington Post explores some of the history of research into the therapeutic potentials of even just one session with a psychedelic drug, and discusses some of the newer understandings about the drugs’ effects on the brain emerging from contemporary neuroscientific research as trials begin to occur again. In addition, the new book “Acid Test: LSD, Ecstasy, and the Power to Heal” is reviewed on Reason.com and in The Lancet Psychiatry.
