UNM ALCOHOL DEPENDENCE STUDY–SARAH’S STORY
Our video page features a new interview from the research study on psilocybin as a treatment for alcohol dependence conducted by Heffter researcher Michael Bogunschutz and his team at the University of New Mexico. Sarah, the volunteer subject interviewed in the video, is an alcoholic who received psilocybin during two treatment sessions. She speaks of the “journey of love” she experienced and the profound changes that have occurred in her life as a result of her participation in the study. The UNM study is the first time that psychedelics have been used as a treatment for alcohol dependence in about 50 years.
