Navigating Psychedelics and the Realm of Addiction
There is perhaps no topic more sensitive in the psychedelic medicine community than the question of what medicine work means for people who identify as addicts or individuals in recovery from substance abuse. Because many models for healing from substance abuse and addiction rely on the importance of abstinence, often from all substance use, the question of whether psychedelics fit into an addiction recovery model is an important one. Come engage in a dialogue about addiction, psychedelics, and the complexities that arise when these worlds meet.
