Dedicated to building a sustainable model of healing
I started my journey into psychedelic therapy as a skeptic. I have a healthy respect for the risks of substances, prescribed or otherwise. Personally, I have lost two loved ones to drug overdoses. I have worked with people trying to rebuild their lives after substance abuse and with grieving parents whose children died from drug or alcohol abuse. I am also wary of the unintended consequences of even “normal” substance use for people with certain genetic vulnerabilities. Schizophrenia runs in my family, and I have seen up close the devastating consequences of this disease. I have long wondered what if any impact precocious experimentation with substances had on the course of my family member’s life. They may have ended up expressing schizophrenia either way, but twin studies suggest that our environment, especially certain chemicals introduced while the brain is still developing, can make a huge difference.
