Psychedelic Integration, offered by qualified mental health professionals, typically utilizes a harm reduction model. For patients that intend to have a psychedelic experience, be it with psilocybin, MDMA, ayahuasca, or other substances, this means we provide a space to discuss reasonable expectations, intentions, safety issues, and much more.
In the event that a patient moves forward with their psychedelic experience, we might then have sessions afterwards to integrate emotions often stirred up by an experience. Some need guidance & support to make sense of challenging aspects of their journey, while others learn how to take the positive benefits of psychedelics into their daily lives.
Most of the Psychedelic Integration in our practice involves supporting those who have OCD and Anxiety & related disorders. For many patients, we are providing Psychedelic Integration paired with conventional treatments for these disorders, such as ERP, ACT, & other forms of CBT. However, we do offer Integration as a stand-alone process as well.
Although there is no specific timeline, we typically see patients for 2-3 sessions pre-experience, and an additional 2-3 after. This is very flexible as needs from person to person are different. Currently, we are able to support patients in Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Tennessee & various countries around the world.
Developments in the world of psychedelics, particularly for mental health & end of life care, are rapidly increasing. We are honored to have the training and passion to offer this service and believe psychedelics will be an integral part of mental health care in the years to come.
