For Immediate Release
Meet the Team: Brandan Adcock
Brandan Adcock serves as The Pearl Psychedelic Institute's Medical Director and as a Board Member.
Brandan is a student of life and is devoted to helping others. Currently practicing as a Board Certified Family Practice Physician, Brandan has devoted much of his professional career towards working with patients utilizing traditional approaches in conjunction with evidence based integrative therapies. His interest in integrative therapies began as a young adult while completing a BA in Wilderness Therapy and Holistic Health from Prescott College, AZ in 2000. During his undergraduate education he was fortunate to be exposed to the profound healing potential of non-ordinary states as they apply to Transpersonal Psychology.
Continued pursuits in understanding the relationship between mind and body led him to complete Asheville Yoga Center’s 200hr Teacher Training in 2001, followed closely by graduation as a bodywork therapist from the Center For Massage and Natural Health in 2003. In 2006, he obtained an Osteopathic Medical Degree from The Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine and, in 2010, graduated from UT Chattanooga’s Family Medicine Residency Program.
Brandan is currently passionate about the safe, ethical and transformative use of psychedelic therapies to treat patients with history of Trauma and/or Treatment Resistant Depression. He completed training in Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy with The Ketamine Training Center NYC in 2019. He is slated to complete an MDMA therapy training sponsored by MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) in the Spring of 2022.
The Pearl Psychedelic Institute is a nonprofit that aims to bring psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy into mainstream practice through research, treatment, and training while reducing the barriers to patient access.
The Pearl Psychedelic Institute has been designated as one of 10 sites in the United States that will be allowed to provide access to this investigational treatment. The Pearl Psychedelic Institute is the only clinic affiliated with this program currently operating in the Southeastern United States; and specifically strives to serve the rural areas of Western North Carolina.
