15 Jun NY TIMES AYAHUASCA ARTICLE QUOTES HEFFTER BOARD MEMBER
An article in the New York Times “Fashion and Style” section covers the current popularity of the psychedelic beverage ayahuasca. The article features quotes from Heffter board member Charles Grob.
“‘It”s a fascinating compound with a great deal to be learned from its effects,’ said Dr. Charles Grob, a psychiatrist who is the director of the division of child and adolescent psychiatry at the Harbor-U.C.L.A. Medical Center and who helped administer a study in Manaus, Brazil, in the 1990s that linked dramatic positive transformations among alcoholics and drug addicts with ayahuasca use. But along with its positives, Dr. Grob is quick to list its dangers.”
