Fadiman, who was instrumental in founding Sofia University in 1975, co-teaches its courses on psychedelic research and clinical issues. The class covers clinical research on psychedelic drugs as adjuncts to psychotherapy for the treatment of addiction, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and existential distress at the end of life, as well as how to address psychedelic experiences that clients bring into psychotherapy.

Often referenced as the authority on psychedelic studies, Fadiman has been featured in The Wall Street Journal and has presented at numerous psychedelic science conferences, including the MAPS Psychedelic Science Conference 2013.
