"The Use of Psychedelics in Psychiatry and Medicine" with Charles Grob

"The Use of Psychedelics in Psychiatry and Medicine" with Charles Grob

Visionary: Charles S. Grob, MD

This discussion reviews the history of psychiatric research with psychedelics from the 1950s to the present.  Particular focus is applied to recent approved investigations with normal volunteers and with specific patient populations, including those with advanced-cancer anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder and chronic post-traumatic stress disorder.  Implications of research conducted in the Brazilian Amazon with the plant hallucinogen decoction ayahuasca to future investigations designed to explore safety and efficacy in the treatment of chronic alcoholism and substance abuse are also examined.
