Once an addict always an addict? Ketamine as therapy for alcoholism? Cocaine drops as toothache remedy? Could great minds such as Albert Einstein, Francis Crick, and Sigmund Freud have been drug users? And why were jet pilots high on amphetamine?


Together we will dive into how psychoactive substances act on the brain, body, and mind. We will also take a look at the use and abuse of these drugs throughout history and around the world and their impact on society now and then.
Finally we will explore current research outlining potential for a therapeutic role of psychoactive substances.
