Drug assisted therapy sounds like another hit and miss idea, which will make money for some and prove more harm than good. How, when we understand healing ways without drugs, can anyone justify using an approach like this? Jeffrey Mousseif Masson was clear in his book, Against Therapy, we do not need therapy or psychiatrists, we need understanding friends/communities and to stay away from toxic people and situations, and drugs. We are not sick and, as often happens, the therapist holds the power as the ‘guide’ and the holder of the drug, the client is vulnerable in their ‘mind altered’ state and open to poorly constructed messaging. Only the wise people in indigenous groups used drugs and trained over a lifetime. The ‘wise men’ took them to gather information from spirits to guide the group. They were rarely used by everyday people in the group and if they were they were very carefully guided and monitored by the wise man. A very different model to what is being described here. I’m very clear, this ‘therapy’ is seriously misconceived.
