Kevin Franciotti: Psychedelics in Recovery

July 24, 2020

Kevin Franciotti is a passionate enthusiast of psychedelic medicine, who's work is informed by his own relationship to addiction.

Today I am speaking to Kevin Franciotti, founder of Psychedelics in Recovery, a fellowship of individuals in 12-step programs who wish to use psychedelics and plant medicines as part of their recovery.

On the show we discuss Kevin’s experience using ibogaine as a treatment for his own opiate addiction and how his work in recovery helped him become a leader in the community.. We talk about the history of Alcoholic Anonymous and other 12-step programs. We explore recovery with a harm-reduction ethos and finally how psychedelic therapists can collaborate with the recovery community.

Kevin is a journalist, a psychedelic researcher, a harm reduction educator, and a substance use recovery advocate.
