We are developing evidence-based, patent-protected, synthetically-derived psychedelic therapeutics to transform the treatment of addiction, starting with synthetic Mescaline HCl (JOUR-5700) for the treatment of alcohol use disorder.

Journey Colab is a biopharmaceutical company unlocking the science of psychedelics

Our mission is to unlock the promising science behind psychedelics to provide durable remission to patients suffering from addiction

Backed by world class investors

We believe that delivering effective psychedelic treatments for addiction and other mental health disorders will also require medicine-induced behavioral modification therapy and community support.

Our long-term vision includes not just effective psychedelic products but also enabling a healing economy that includes on-the-ground specialists and the infrastructure that supports their work.
