This report is based on a thesis submitted by the first author in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts at McGill University. One study reviewed the use of LSD, peyote, ibogaine, and ayahuasca in the treatment of drug dependencies. Safety issues The potential for classic hallucinogens in addiction treatment requires an understanding of the risks and safety mechanisms to minimize all potential harm. In these patients, LSD gradually turned out to be a better drug [ Dutta, ]. J Psychopharmacol — Thus LSD use does not lead to physical dependence. The physical effects produced are: dilated pupils, higher or lower body temperature, sweating or chills, loss of appetite, sleeplessness, dry mouth, tremors, and so on.

STAI reductions were sustained for 12 months. After initial psychiatric investigations by Stoll [ Stoll, ], several case reports and studies in the s and s described different bizarre psychological effects of this drug in clinical practice [ Bercel et al.
Furthermore, it examines an inter-textual dialogue concerning the medical, spiritual and philosophical value of these drugs, which has a direct effect on the development of the aforementioned psychiatric research models. It was thus hoped to minimize the risk of harmful behaviors and consequences, which had received extensive publicity in the daily press, and unfortunate experiences resulting from self use and experimentation by the lay public [ Barnes, ].
