Entheon Biomedical

a new dimension in addiction treatment

Reasons To Believe

Entheon Biomedical is pioneering a leading-edge addiction recovery solution that harnesses and optimizes the therapeutic potential of the DMT molecule. Entheon exists to invert the addiction-recovery ratio, turning the ‘untreatable case’ and ‘lost cause’ from the norm to the exception.

We are committed to the legal development of regulated, safe & effective therapies, and in educating the public and medical profession as to the efficacy of psychedelic protocols when clinically administered in the optimum set and setting.


DMT and Addiction

When it comes to treating addiction, the rate of success is so low that society has been conditioned to accept – and even expect – failure. This manner of thinking is both unacceptable and counterproductive. There is a need for an alternative approach, that addresses the human cost of addiction for individuals, families and society at large.

We are developing a DMT-assisted therapeutic protocol that will be specifically tailored to address the core mechanisms underlying drug-seeking and using behavior. Our chief aim is to provide an effective and scalable therapeutic protocol that will serve as a vital resource for those afflicted with a substance-use disorder, and who are wanting to reclaim their lives. 



Entheon’s founders share a direct and personal understanding of the endless suffering and loss of human potential that comes with unsuccessful attempts to treat a disorder that has proven highly resistant to existing therapeutic models.


Entheon is collaborating with leaders in the psychedelic medicine space, in Canada and around the world. The meaningful inputs of our research and academic partners are validating our process, guiding our clinical trials and optimising the safety and efficacy of our product design.


Well tolerated with few adverse effects, pure DMT is the ideal molecule for advancing new models of psychedelic-assisted therapy. DMT is unique among hallucinogens in that it is endogenous in the human body. While other drugs in the class produce intense effects that last up to 12 hours, the effects of DMT are more gradual, less jarring and much shorter in duration.


Our unique proposed delivery system titrates DMT into the body allowing for a gradual, more comfortable transition to the psychedelic state. The ability to control the duration and intensity of DMT’s effects, along with the ability to rapidly end the experience, will allow clinicians to provide the therapeutic effects of hallucinogens in a safer, more controlled and patient-specific manner.


Our nuanced, individualized approach considers every aspect of the patient journey, including how the individual is informed and prepared, the comfort and ambiance of their treatment environment, and, following the psychedelic event, how they integrate the experience through talk therapy and post-care.
