The Scottish Psychedelic Research Group are based at the University of Edinburgh, within the School of Health in Social Science – however the plan is to make links with those who have an interest in this area of research throughout Scotland. We hope to attract people from a range of professional and academic backgrounds. Some of our aims as a group are to conduct a clinical trial into psychedelic-assisted therapy for addiction, to research the historical use of psychedelic plants in Scotland, and to conduct research in individuals already planning on taking psychedelics (such as in a legal retreat setting abroad).
