Depression free for 1 year

Psychedelic therapy for depression still effective one year later

Johns Hopkins researchers followed up with patients one year after receiving psilocybin therapy. They found that 75% of patients sustained significant reductions in depression scores and 58% no longer qualified for a diagnosis. 

However, about a third of patients also used traditional antidepressants and 42% received additional psychotherapy at some point during the year.

So although psilocybin therapy can have rapid results, multiple treatment options can help sustain the benefits.
