Peter Addy PhD, is profoundly interested in the relationships that people develop with psychoactive substances. As a postdoctoral associate in a psychopharmacology lab he gave people drugs, including salvinorin A, THC, and ketamine. As a psychology resident at a substance abuse treatment unit he helped people who wanted to stop using drugs.
