LOS ANGELES, Sept. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With a staggering 59% increase in diagnoses in 2020, substance abuse is one of the largest - and most silent - pandemics affecting Americans.

Psychedelic-assisted therapy is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after treatments to aid with substance abuse disorders. Research shows that psychedelic-assisted therapy has serious potential to treat addictive disorders. A recent survey in which 343 people with alcohol abuse problems who took either LSD or psilocybin outside a clinical setting found that 83 percent no longer met clinical criteria for alcohol use disorder within three months of their psychedelic experiences.

Combining Western medicine with indigenous practices and wisdom, this healing speciality is significantly adding practitioners across the US, gaining interest among candidates and growing support for legalization in State legislatures. The increase in interest in psychedelic-assisted therapy has resulted in the need for education on these types of holistic health treatment options, as well as resources to safely connect clients to practitioners.
