The Heroic Dose

The Heroic Dose is a one-day virtual conference that will explore the use of psychedelic therapies and ketamine in military veterans and first responders in an effort to combat the alarming rates of PTSD, substance abuse and suicide in this valuable yet underserved demographic. Topics discussed include the therapeutic potential of psychedelics over opioids for pain management, reducing the graduation of acute pain to chronic pain, and preventing suicide in the long run. The Heroic Dose will cover the intersection of clinical care, research and investment arenas.
