Psychedelic studied as treatment from alcoholism

“Dr. Michael Bogenschutz, a psychiatrist at UNM School of Medicine, said he is studying the use of psilocybin — the active psychedelic compound in many species of hallucinogenic mushrooms — for the treatment of alcohol abuse and addiction”.

The study of this use of psilocybin is still in its early stages, but Bogenschutz said that if future research observes positive results, psilocybin may become a medication that could help treat alcohol dependence.
