A proposal to evaluate mechanistic efficacy of hallucinogens in addiction treatment. American Journal Of Drug & Alcohol Abuse 39(5) 291-297. doi:10.3109/00952990.2013.811513 In their article Burdick and Adinoff (2013) evaluate the mechanistic efficacy of hallucinogens in addiction treatment to bridge the gap between various clinical comparisons of non-drug induced and drug-induced states for drug addiction treatment. Burdick and Adinoff begin by stating that hallucinogens are effective in addiction treatment although the strength of the mechanisms is yet to be interrelated with clinical effects and hence the previous study aims at addressing the gap. The authors draw the assumption that the psilocybin population will have considerably better clinical results than either the placebo group or Holotropic Breathwork. The authors also describe the use of a random assessment of consisting of a placebo group and two experimental a qualitative research design used a purposive sampling procedure to recruit participants (smokers non-smokers and a range of staff) from four government-funded drug centers in New South Wales. Wilson et al. describe how the participants provided data in various areas through interviews and focused group discussions which were analyzed using descriptive statistics. The study’s results demonstrate that both the staff and clients are willing to ensure effective tobacco cessation but are challenged by particular barriers which make the findings significant in designing effective cessation programs with motivating factors. The authors illustrate how these results concur with previous studies regarding perceptions of tobacco smoking and concludes by emphasizing the need to address the barriers through a comprehensive approach such as staff training. Besides the authors demonstrate how a holistic approach can result in effective tobacco treatment hence suggests new research on effective approaches to intensify tobacco cessation in treatment settings.
