Psychedelic medicine to better treat addiction


We are at a crisis point in the field of mental health provision and Addiction treatment

Mental health and addictions are the 5th leading cause of illness globally, affecting 20% of the global population. The global substance Addiction treatment industry is valued at US$17.5bn per annum and is forecast to increase to US$31.5bn per annum by 2027.

Unlike other medical disciplines, psychiatry focuses on maintenance rather than cure, and symptom suppression rather than addressing the root causes of these illnesses.

The exception is Psychedelics and Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy which have the potential to radically change Addiction treatment and deliver significantly better patient outcomes.
