Is Psychedelic Therapy Integrative Medicine?

Matthew Hicks, ND, MS

Volume 3 Issue 2

Abstract:

Outside of FDA-approved clinical trials, psychedelics remain illegal though there are indications that this status will change in the coming years. An unanswered and seldom discussed question is, who will be authorized to provide psychedelic therapy? Will it only be board-certified psychiatrists and licensed psychotherapists? What about integrative providers? This paper will discuss the parallels between psychedelic medicine and integrative health, their origins, definitions, and safety.
