LSD-assisted Psychotherapy

Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) is a semisynthetic psychoactive compound initially used as an investigational drug for psychiatric research. In the 1950s, psychotherapy with psychedelic drugs such as LSD was used to induce a mystical experience with the aim of enabling individuals to work through difficult feelings and situations. LSD administration prior to individual psychotherapy recently was studied for its effect on anxiety.
