Brazil’s psychedelic rehab center treats addicts with ayahuasca

Vice featured a 2013 UBC study for a story on ayahuasca, a non-addictive tea found to eliminate drug cravings.

The study from UBC’s school of population and public health found that ayahuasca therapy lowers cocaine, alcohol and tobacco cravings, and increases mindfulness, quality of life, hopefulness and empowerment.

The tea can also cause hallucinations about past traumatic experiences.
