Drew shares his journey from abandonment as an adopted child through traumatic combat experiences in Iraq, to the darkness of addiction, and his eventual healing and transformation through psychedelic plant medicine. Beth and Drew discuss the role of plant medicines including Ayahuasca and Bufo in assisting individuals with PTSD and other mental health issues.
