Pa. veterans will help study psychedelic drugs to treat trauma, prevent suicide

A movement led by military veterans has embraced using psychedelic medications to treat conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder and severe depression, citing an urgent need to make them widely available in Pennsylvania.

They further say treatments and medications prescribed for veterans by the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs commonly provide little or no relief, often worsening problems including depression and suicide. Standard treatments for severe depression haven’t changed in decades, and psychedelic medications have the potential to revolutionize treatment, said veterans and others who spoke at the state Capitol on Wednesday.
