After many years of prescription medications failing her, a suicidal young woman, Adrianne, turns to underground healers to try and overcome her depression, anxiety, and opioid addiction with illegal psychedelic medicines like mushrooms and iboga.
The story of drug addiction is all too familiar. This movie, about one woman’s fight for her life against all odds, is particularly resonant for our time. DOSED is a revealing documentary that follows the deeply personal journey of one woman’s attempt to free herself from the grasp of heroin. It’s an addict’s journey from rock bottom to early recovery primarily through the use of Psilocybin mushrooms and Ibogaine therapies.
Trapped inside a system that does not value her and offers only treatments that do not work, desperate and contemplating suicide, she decides to take a risk in order to heal herself.
