Dr. Peter Silverstone breaks down the complex subject of psychedelics as a treatment for mental health

EDMONTON, Alberta – April 21, 2022 – (

Easy to read, yet backed by research, Dr. Peter Silverstone’s new book, The Promise of Psychedelics: Science Based Hope for Better Mental Health, published by Ingenium Books, tells us that combining psychedelics with new therapy can to be one of the most significant breakthroughs in mental health treatment in decades.

“We have a mental health system that is overwhelmed and underfunded, a psychiatric diagnostic framework that has major problems and does not allow for an individualized approach,” Dr Silverstone said. “One in five adults experience the negative effects of conditions such as PTSD, addiction, major depression or anxiety. Few therapies and treatments available today prove effective. We desperately need a new approach.

In The Promise of Psychedelics, Dr. Silverstone reveals why science tells us that combining certain psychedelics with the right psychotherapy can help people with a wide range of mental health issues, and why this multimodal psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy promises to revolutionize the treatment of mental health disorders.

Of course, psychedelics are not a panacea, and when taken alone without coordinated psychotherapy, they are much less effective and carry much higher risks. The Promise of Psychedelics is a guide to psychedelic therapy that introduces readers to the latest science advancing our understanding of psychedelics, including what they are, how they work, what are the risks, and which ones will transform health treatment mental illness for millions of patients. Dr. Silverstone also shares the science behind micro-dosing psychedelics, which ones hold the most promise for inclusion in mental health therapies, and why some psychedelics just aren’t ready for prime time.
