Seemingly hopeless drug addict Adrianne is at the end of her tether, suicidal and despairing of ever freeing herself from heroin and methadone – or the opioids prevalent around Death Alley in downtown Vancouver. She seeks the help of a network of alternative healers who provide the psychedelic medicines psilocybin (magic mushrooms) and the rainforest shrub iboga. The use of these to treat depression and anxiety is a growing area of research, and the application of “micro-dosing” has been found to have remarkable success in even the most intractable cases.

Dosed follows Adrianne on her journey to hell and back as she undergoes numerous “trips” – including psychotherapeutic and shamanic sessions – in her struggle for sobriety. Tyler Chandler’s directorial debut manages to be both a compelling investigative documentary, while remaining an intimate and sensitive portrait.
