If you have tried all other forms of therapy and they have failed you, maybe giving Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy a go is your best bet. This crazy form of therapy has long been used in shamanic rituals and consists of the patient being given the drug DMT (‘N, N-Dimethyltryptamine’ to give it its full name). The patient is then taken on a guided tour of their thoughts and feelings. If it all sounds like crazy talk you are probably right, but this is indeed a real therapy that is getting some rather interesting results. If you want to know more do read on…
What is Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy?
Psychedelic-assisted therapy is a combination of talk-based therapy, guided mediation and hallucinogenic drugs. This really is a kind of last-resort therapy and best taken by those who have had very little success with other forms of therapy. While it is mostly used for depression the methods could easily help those of us with BPD as all. Developed by a chief scientific officer of Small Pharma named “Carol Routledge” this form of therapy can be done as a one-off session, or as part of a much longer course
Does Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy Work?
The truth is the results so far are based on a small controlled group of people who have liked the therapy to “shaking a snow globe and letting the snow settle”. While at the moment the results are positive they are expecting to follow the patients for at least six months to see if they are any better and more in control of their own emotions. You can read a lot more about the results of the trials by clicking on THIS LINK.
How Can I Get Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy Here in the UK?
As I have already said, this is only just starting to perform small trials on people so the chances of getting into one of the control groups currently taking place in the University College London are slim. But if they are successful you could well see sessions being performed in clinical settings all over the UK, but for now, we will just have to wait.
As with any of these BPD treatments before you might need to try a combination of them before you find that winning combination, but do stick with it. If you want any help or advice relating to BPD do drop me an email via the contact us page and one of our writers will answer it ASAP.
