Session 320: Utilizing Psychedelics for Chronic Pain
The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.
When you think of psychedelics, you may conjure images of magical mushrooms and colorful hallucinations, but did you know that psychedelics are being used in the healthcare space to treat individuals who suffer from chronic pain, anxiety, and depression? To dive into the world of psychedelics and their medical utility, this week I'm joined by Dr. Danielle Doyle, a double board-certified anesthesiologist and pain doctor dedicated to providing comprehensive integrated wellness, psychedelic education, and services for individuals dealing with chronic pain. During our conversation we discussed how psychedelics such as ketamine are effective for patients who deal with chronic pain, how Dr. Doyle and others are working to increase equity in psychedelic care, and how to discover if ketamine care is the right course of treatment for you.
