Memorable Quotes

“I think psychedelics fit into an integrative and functional framework is that they represent one facet of what needs to be addressed here. You can help a person get out of a ditch with their depression or their PTSD with these tools, but, and I like to use this analogy a lot in my practice, you don’t want to be dragged around by a tow truck for the rest of your life. And it’s the same situation with these tools. We got to get under there, pop the hood. We need to look at all of the aspects of wellness that got derailed as you went deeper and deeper into this mental health challenge.” [00:13:31] – Dr. Will Van Derveer

“What’s exciting about these tools is that they’re evocative treatments. They bring forward what’s underneath that needs to be looked at versus a suppressive treatment, which is most of what the medications I was taught to prescribe as a psychiatrist involved. It’s not a value judgment.” [00:15:35] – Dr. Will Van Derveer
