Psilocybin and Alcoholism
"A small study on the therapeutic effects of using psychedelics to treat alcohol use disorder found that just two doses of psilocybin magic mushrooms paired with psychotherapy led to an 83 percent decline in heavy drinking among the participants. Those given a placebo reduced their alcohol intake by 51 percent."
Psilocybin and Opioid Abuse
"Science has reached a first tipping point where there’s now enough evidence [that] it’s really hard not to take the potential of psychedelics seriously.”
