Viagem terapêutica

psilocibina lsd tratamento psiquiatria

A última edição de The New Yorker traz uma boa matéria sobre o uso de drogas psicodélicas em pesquisas médicas: The Trip Treatment.

O texto aborda questões históricas e culturais e salienta novas perspectivas de uso terapêutico de substâncias como LSD e o enteógeno psilocibina.

Between 1953 and 1973, the federal government spent four million dollars to fund a hundred and sixteen studies of LSD, involving more than seventeen hundred subjects. (These figures don’t include classified research.) Through the mid-nineteen-sixties, psilocybin and LSD were legal and remarkably easy to obtain. (…). Psychedelics were tested on alcoholics, people struggling with obsessive-compulsive disorder, depressives, autistic children, schizophrenics, terminal cancer patients, and convicts, as well as on perfectly healthy artists and scientists (to study creativity) and divinity students (to study spirituality). The results reported were frequently positive. 

Vale a pena reservar um tempo para ler.
