Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy

Psychedelic-assisted therapy refers to the therapeutic use of psychedelic drugs such as LSD, psilocybin, DMT, mescaline, and MDMA under strict professional supervision. Clients are prepared in advance by the therapist and then helped afterward to integrate and understand their experience with the drug. In a psychedelic-assisted therapy session, the client is administered the drug and then, as the drug takes effect, guided by the therapist to explore their feelings and experience. Both client and therapist remain in session until the drug wears off completely. Follow-up sessions help the client fully integrate their experiences. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
