Psychedelics have increasingly been studied therapeutically to target a range of psychiatric disorders, from depression to PTSD. A small but growing number of studies indicate that the use of psychedelics, when paired with psychotherapy, may provide a powerful tool to treat substance use disorders. This talk is targeted towards psychiatric providers interested in better understanding the history, current literature, and potential future directions of psychedelics as therapeutics targeting substance use disorders.
