The Psychedelic Education and Continuing Care Program is designed to assist people who have had psychedelic experiences and seek support in connection with those experiences and people who would like to learn more about the therapeutic use of psychedelics. Our overarching intentions for the program include exploring how psychedelics can contribute to the healing process in dealing with substance use issues and trauma through education and community events. In keeping with the harm reduction approach that the Center for Optimal Living is known for, we also seek to reduce psychedelic use’s potential risks. Individuals who have had difficult experiences can benefit from a better understanding of the often-challenging feelings stirred by psychedelics. Those who have had positive experiences can use supportive therapy to bolster and integrate these insights into their daily lives.
We are currently offering virtual panel discussions, psychedelic integration groups, and trainings.
