The center conducts an intake processPsychedelic Integration Therapy has an emerging evidence base for treatment of certain conditions (see below). It is best suited to those who have struggled with recovery under ‘usual care’ of counseling and/or medications. Assessment, review of contraindications, and expectations need to be assessed. Discussion of the legal and ethical issues will be covered.

The center provides a follow up integration processThe integration phase begins the day after the participant’s self-dosing session; it involves reviewing the participant’s experience during the dosing session thoroughly and applying therapeutic techniques to reinforce particular aspects of the experience so they foster sustained desirable patterns of thought and behavior. In other words, integration continues the therapeutic process that began during preparation sessions, and intensified during a psychedelic experience. The role of the therapist is to facilitate the integration process and help consolidate the newly developed mindset, including the actualization of insights and initiation of behavioral changes that foster recovery.
