Franklin King IV, MD, a psychiatrist at Massachusetts General Hospital, will discuss psychedelic drugs and their potential for treating addictions and severe depression.
He will define “psychedelic”; discuss psilocybin, LSD and other psychedelic drugs; walk through their history and biology; give an overview of the scientific research; and describe an innovative therapeutic model that is unlike any other. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
Dr. King is a staff psychiatrist at the Center for Anxiety and Traumatic Stress Disorders and the Director of Training and Education at the Center for the Neuroscience of Psychedelics, both at MGH.
The free event is presented by the Friends of the Needham Public Library. All are welcome.
