Psychedelic-Assisted Healing & Harm Reduction

Getting the Most out of Every Journey

ONE-ON-ONE SUPPORT

Creative approaches to supporting the body, psyche, and spirit.

It’s no secret that psychedelic medicine is making a comeback. The recent years have seen an explosion of new research demonstrating the effects of substances like MDMA (the active ingredient in the street drug “ecstasy”) in helping individuals with treatment-resistant post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Psilocybin (the active constituent of “magic mushrooms”) has been shown in trials at NYU and Johns Hopkins to help relieve anxiety and depression, with long-lasting benefits. And yet other psychedelic substances like the Amazonian brew Ayahuasca, the Bwiti shrub Iboga, and even the American hippie generation’s LSD-25 may help individuals overcome addictions (including drug addictions) more successfully than the other programs and therapies currently available within the scope of Western medicine. (Fun fact: Bill W, the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous credited a psychedelic journey with his successful sobriety and in fact advocated for the use of psychedelics in the treatment of alcoholism.)

While the research is promising and will very likely result in many of these substances becoming legal in the United States within the very near future, the jury is still out. Theses substances are not without their risks, and they are certainly not foolproof.

That’s where chatting with a professional about psychedelic harm reduction may be a wise step in helping you make the smartest choices possible.
