    it's not happening, but it has happended. back when acid was still legal it was considered a bit of a breakthrough drug. and many psycho-analysists of varying stature used LSD in some of there sessions.

    Try and find 'Storming Heaven' by Jay Stevens, and 'The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test' by Tom Wolfe.

    I thought the psychiatrial reseach
    involved in MK ULTRA was directed towards reprograming of subjects
    [this was mostly done at the canada facility ] and adminestering lsd to
    mental patients without informing their doctors, or to unknowing
    civilians and military subjects.



    Yet another reason why we should all thrust the goverment blindly, they know what's best for us...[​IMG]

    There were two kinds of therapy. Psycholytic therapy...where a patient was gven a series of small doses of LSD as part of an extensive and on-going therapeutic regimen. Psychedelic therapy...where a large dose was given in the hopes of inducing a dramatic breakthrough.


    My understanding is that LSD therapy was discontinued because when it was made illegal it became too difficult to obtain even for medical research. Too many government hoops to jump through, paperwork etc. This is especially a shame because so much promise was shown. I too really liked 'Storming Heaven' by Jay Stevens. 'Electric Koolaid Acidtest' is a classic, of course. But if you are interested in LSD therapy itself, you might like "The Human Encounter with Death" by Stanislav Grof. Not sure if it's still in print, but it's excellent.

    lsd psychotherapy was indeed quite widely studied in the 1960's. most
    studies, however, had only begun when lsd was criminalized and
    virtually all research using human subjects was forcibly terminated.



    one of the pioneering researches in this area is indeed stanislav grof,
    who supervised over one thousand lsd experiences in a therapeutic
    setting in czechoslovakia and the united states. grof's book 'lsd
    psychotherapy' is a very good description of the psychedelic therapy
    process and potential results (which appeared to be extremely
    promising, as in the work numerous other therapeuts as well). a new
    edition of the book was published in 1994 and should be easy to find. i
    can highly recommend this book as a groundsetting work on lsd
    psychotherapy. grof has also authored numerous other books on lsd
    psychotherapy, the psychedelic experience and the human mind and
    consciousness in general.

    yea, real promising stuff: fifty percent of hofmann's patients being treated for cronic alcoholism never drank another drink with a rip on the acid trip. but go figure, the government goes out of it's way to legalize the most dangerous drugs and percecute psychedelic psychoactives.

    Didnt they also use E/MDMA in the "meetings" with the councelors where
    the patients were undergoing theorpy and they could talk more about it
    when they were rolling... i swear i heard that, or am thinking things
    up (i'm sure i'm right)

    yea you are not making things up. psychologists have been researching mdma for twenty years or so. MAPS.org is a great place to research this topic. The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studiesis a membership-based non-profit research and educational organization.They assist scientists to design, fund, obtain approval for and report on studies into the risks and benefits of MDMA, psychedelic drugs and marijuana[/B]. i can't wait till i can find twenty extra bucks to buy a student membership and support research for psychedelics!

    The goverment will only fund lsd research that will benefit chemical warfare...mind control. But lsd as therapy for suffering "patients," oh no, God forbid that.


    Timothy Leary conducted research with psyilocybin on inmates in the Concord prison. Forgot where exactly it was at....Massachusetts I believe.....correct me if I'm wrong. But he had a 75% success rate.

    lsd : alcohol :: methadone : heroin; i believe so. using one substance to withdraw from the other seems illogical to some people, but ituses very few experiences (esp. lsd)with the treatment of the withdrawal drug (lsd and methadone) this leads to very high success rates tocuring alcoholism, an almost unheard of task until lsd psychotherapy was conducted.

    LSD therapy could also benefit world affairs and prevent wars. I mean would a dictator, king, president, or other political figure have the same ideals after an Awakening EGODEATH?
