About Dr Reid Robinson
Dr Reid is the coordinating investigator for the MAPS MDMA-assisted Psychotherapy study of Eating Disorders. As an early adopter and researcher of Ketamine in psychiatry, Reid obtained his first grant to study ketamine in 2011. He has been principal investigator of over 100 clinical trials, and led the Utah site for the pivotal ketamine study for MDD by Janssen, leading up to the company’s recent FDA-approval of Spravato. To date, Reid has guided thousands of ketamine therapy journeys and hundreds of Spravato dosing sessions. He is co-developer of Emotion-Focused Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (EF-KAP), a theoretically informed treatment model to support the client in the processing and integration of insights gained through the ketamine experience.
Reid is adjunct faculty at the University of Utah, founder of the Polizzi Free Clinic, and provides medical support and psychedelic therapy at plant medicine retreats abroad.
Dr Robison is a firm believer that inside every person, no matter where they are in their journey, is an inextinguishable light, with the capability for a full human life. Dr Robison says, “Not all wounds are visible, and everyone has their unique struggle. Pain is real…but so is hope.”
