Today, the NY Times published an article captioned “In Brazil, Some Inmates Get Therapy With Hallucinogenic Tea.”
The article is here: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/29/world/americas/a-hallucinogenic-tea-time-for-some-brazilian-prisoners.html
The article discusses use of a ritual hallucinogenic tea and meditation as a treatment for inmates. It’s fascinating. There is no chance at all that anything this progressive would happen here (very few programs that are empathetic to the plights of inmates proceed in the US). But it is hopeful that other countries – more evolved in the care of treatment and inmates – are pursuing genuine means for rehabilitation.
