Psychedelics linked to persisting reductions in cannabis, opioid, and stimulant use

Those who reported taking a higher dose, and experiencing more insight and mystical-type effects, tended to report greater reduction in drug consumption. 

Johnson and his colleagues found that most of the participants reported using LSD or psilocybin to induce the psychedelic experience in question. Approximately 79% of participants met the DSM-5 criteria for severe substance abuse disorder prior to their psychedelic experience. But only about 27% met the criteria for substance abuse disorder after the experience … “I’ve previously published survey research with such stories regarding tobacco and alcohol, so these newer survey data about overcoming addictions or reducing use of opioids, cocaine, methamphetamine, and cannabis add to the growing literature suggesting robust anti-addiction potential to psychedelics.”
