New research from the University of Alabama has found that “hallucinogen” use predicted a reduced likelihood of supervision failure (e.g. noncompliance with legal requirements including alcohol and other drug use. The results suggest that hallucinogens may promote alcohol and other drug abstinence and prosocial behavior in a population with high rates of recidivism.

The research can be found here: http://jop.sagepub.com/content/28/1/62.abstract
