Reply to comment by __0 in Aa is a cult by TwentyFiveCharsOrLess

I mean it was born out of the oxford group so it has explicitly Christian origins.

Though its founder was also into spirits and did seances and thought the spirit of st boniface was helping him out. He also thought lsd would be helpful in overcoming alcoholism. (he basically became sober after having a vision so he saw lsd as an easy way to recreate vision experience in others.)

idk, just a random info dump i guess.

Psychedelics are useful in treating addiction, depression, and trauma when combined with therapy.

Or, without therapy. In my experience anyway. I don't like tripsitters anyway but especially would not like a therapist to do that.
