This open-label, phase 2 trial (n=18) will investigate the safety and preliminary effectiveness of MDMA-assisted therapy (MDMA-AT) in military veterans with co-occurring Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
This double-blind study (n=128) will investigate if LSD (150-250μg, 2x) will be effective in treating alcoholism (AUD). This will be compared to an 'active' placebo of 10μg LSD. The study, when conducted, will be the largest modern study of LSD for AUD.
The purpose of this project is to assess the treatment efficacy of a single high dose of psilocybin administered within a protocol of psychological support to patients diagnosed with alcohol use disorder (AUD).
96 recently detoxified alcoholics will be randomized to receive either 3 sessions ketamine (0.8 mg/kg IV over 45 minutes) or placebo plus manualised psychological therapy, or 3 sessions of ketamine or placebo plus simple psychoeducation.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether psilocybin, a hallucinogenic drug, is effective in reducing depressive symptoms and amount of drinking in patients with co-occurring Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD).
The purpose of this project is to assess the feasibility and safety of administering a single dose of psilocybin to patients diagnosed with alcohol use disorder (AUD). In addition, the investigators will establish the pharmacokinetic properties of the active metabolite psilocin. This is the first step in a research project that has the overall aim to evaluate the efficacy of a single administration of psilocybin as an intervention for the treatment of AUD.
This open-label study (n=14) investigated the effect of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy in treating patients with alcoholism (Alcohol Use Disorder, AUD). The patients were first detoxified and subsequently underwent eight weeks of therapy, including two high doses of MDMA (125mg + 62.5mg booster) plus therapy.
This open-label trial (n=20) investigates if psilocybin (n=25mg) and Visual Healing (an 'optimised' set and setting using VR with a nature theme) will be significantly better in treating those with alcohol use disorder than a 'standard' set and setting.
This project aims to evaluate the potential rapid and sustained antisuicidal and antidepressant effects of a single intranasal dose of ketamine in inpatients during a mood episode in Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) or Bipolar Disorder (BD) with or without comorbid recent abuse of alcohol.
The investigators will compare 3 treatment groups (ketamine plus naltrexone vs. ketamine alone vs. placebo) for treating major depressive disorder (MDD) and alcohol use disorder (AUD) in an 8-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, between-subjects trial.
Several lines of evidence suggest that classic hallucinogens such as psilocybin can facilitate behaviour change in addictions such as alcohol dependence. The investigation is a multi-site, double-blind, active-controlled trial (n=95, 47 per group) contrasting the acute and persisting effects of psilocybin to those of diphenhydramine (placebo) in the context of outpatient alcoholism treatment.
This trial is an open-label pilot study (N = 10) designed to assess the effects of psilocybin in alcohol dependent participants, demonstrate the feasibility of the integrated behavioral/pharmacologic intervention, and provide preliminary outcome and safety data.

Find Psychedelic Trials
Browse through all psychedelic trials that have been done or are ongoing. These trials, usually double-blind, placebo-controlled studies, are the core of psychedelic research. The outcome of these trials will determine the future of psychedelics as medicine.
The trials included in our database come from ClinicalTrials.Gov and from the various companies pursuing psychedelics as medicine. Most of the trials have been funded by universities, though companies and governments are currently starting to ramp up their involvement.
