This episode will be a little bit different than the usual format. Over the last 6 years of hosting the podcast I’ve had multiple guests talk about the use of psychedelic assisted therapy to treat their core issues that lead them to addiction. It seems like psychedelic assisted therapy is everywhere these days. The Today Show profiled a study done by NYU on how psilocybin was used to treat alcoholism. Netflix has a series called “How to change your mind” where many of the use cases profiled the use of psychedelics to treat mental health issues like depression, anxiety, PTSD, Trauma and Addiction. There is a lot to be learned but the evidence for transformational change is exciting.
My guest today is Joshua Tanner, a medical student at Stanford who has not only had one of these transformational experiences, but has plans to potentially open clinics in the pacific northwest to facilitate psychedelic assisted therapy.
