Podcast 13: Josh Matthews Discusses Unconventional and Controversial Treatments for Addiction

Check out Josh Matthews' grounded-theory research project on the use of psychedelic and entheogenic substances for the treatment of addiction.  Josh's research is being done in the context of a doctoral dissertation, which is titled “Unconventional Pathways to Freedom: A Refined Conceptualization of Substance Addiction, Recovery, and the Transformative Process.”  This research takes the form of a qualitative, “grounded-theory” study.  Grounded-theory research generates theory based in observation (rather than theory generated simply by one’s intellectual abstractions).
