Is Psychedelic Therapy Effective? PLUS: Jud Brewer’s Mindfulness, Seth Rogen’s Cannabis Use — LPP Podcast
Addiction news of the week (and its meaning and uses) in review:
What does psychedelic research tell us about (a) medical therapy, (b) the history of medicine, (c) the nature of mental disorders that an ancient “herb” (psilocybin) exceeds the most significant product of modern biochemistry (SSRIs) in remedying depression?
In what way is anxiety addiction-like, and how can we use this knowledge to help Ezra Klein actually reduce his anxiety– rather than simply making for good bedtime reading?
And how might we work with non-addicted Seth Rogen so that he could continue to enjoy life and be non-stop productive without being stoned around the clock?
The name of the game is AGENCY: lassoing drugs, therapy, and insight into self-directed living and change.
Please let us know your thoughts in the comments below – we would love to hear from you. Have you used psychedelics to improve your life? To get over an addiction?
