Psychology Today: How to Benefit from Psychedelics Without Even Taking Them

Summary: In Psychology Today, Sarah Rose Siskind outlines the ways in which people can benefit from psychedelics without actually consuming them. One of these possible advantages, Siskind argues, is that research in psychedelics “has set a precedent of radical self-healing,” citing MAPS’ progress as a contributing factor. “When in 1986, Rick Doblin founded MAPS, a group intent on legalizing medical psychedelics, it appeared to be an insurmountable task,” she writes. “Now, 35 years later, he is making good on his promises and rounding the final turn, hurtling toward the legalization of medicinal MDMA.”
