NYU Study on Psychedelics as Treatment for PTSD

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Treatment with Psychedelic Drugs

NYU Langone

Objectives of this learning scenario, developed by NYU Langone’s High School Bioethics Project, are to understand post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and the symptoms it causes, learn how the chemical psilocybin, found in psychedelic drugs, can potentially help people who have PTSD, and discuss the ethical implications of using drugs that are often used recreationally as therapeutics.
