Dr. Radowitz has a wealth of experience seeing the effects trauma can have on our physical health firsthand. He joined Nushama to oversee and develop treatment modalities, believing psychedelics are the future of mental wellness as current solutions treat symptoms, not underlying issues.

Originally from Montreal, he completed his M.D. at Chicago Medical School. He worked at St. Vincent’s in general medicine and HIV/AIDS units and was Medical Director of the inpatient alcohol and opiate detox and treatment unit.
Dr. Radowitz’s focus is preventive medicine, getting to the underlying source before it manifests as “dis-ease,” a misalignment of mind, body, and spirit.

At Nushama, he leads one of the most experienced teams in psychedelic medicine.
