Overview of Intake and Treatment Plan Process
Our program operates under a system of transparency and full disclosure. All of our services and our fees are included on this website for you to review before contacting us, and to refer to as a resource at any time.
We are an intentional Psychedelic Therapy Center that believes it takes time to create the necessary “set and setting” for safe and transformative Psychedelic Experiences. Our intake process and treatment recommendations reflect this by requiring a flexible “stepping into” process within our treatment plan. This allows us to adequately assess the level of necessary treatment over a series of stages instead of requiring a large initial payment in advance.
PAYMENT, RESCHEDULING, AND CANCELLATION POLICY
Payment is required to reserve your dates of service and sessions within a psychedelic therapy series should be booked all at once after the prepartion period. This will eliminate any potential pauses in treatment that could occur if you paid as you go. A psychedelic therapy protocol requires medical oversight and is a series of preparation, integration and medicine sessions based on your therapeutic goals. Generally, for efficacy, we don’t offer single medicine experiences, requiring an initial minimum commitment of two psychedelic sessions. We will work with clients who have specific financial needs to make our work as accessible as possible.
Regular, one to two-hour sessions require a 48-hour cancellation notice to reschedule or to receive a refund. Because psychedelic therapy sessions are sometimes a full day of work and are harder to reschedule quickly, these sessions require two weeks notice to reschedule or to receive a refund.
Our Psychedelic Therapy Process
Initial Inquiry & Free Consultation
The first step is to fill out our Initial Consultation form to let us know a little about your needs and interests. We would love to hear from you and will answer any questions you may have. After you submit the inquiry form, we’ll contact you to set up a free 20 minute call to discuss our services and to match you with a psychedelic service provider. The purpose of this call is to get to know you more, answer your questions, and to determine the required level of care.
30-60 minute initial consultation ($100-$150) and onboarding process
After you have your questions answered and you wish to join our program, we’ll match you to one of our facilitators to begin the preparation process. We will send you our intake form and universal disclosure document and these should be filled out before your first session.
Together we will assess if a Psychedelic Therapy Protocol is right for you. We are happy to educate you about different options and what the overall process can look like, as well as to begin exploring your treatment goals.
Initial session and paperwork
Once paired with a practitioner, you will begin with an initial 60-minute session with your practitioner at their hourly rate, and complete necessary paperwork based on the type of Psychedelic Therapy you are doing.
Preparation sessions ($150 each)
Before your first Medicine-Assisted Therapy sessions, you will meet with your therapist for 1-3 sessions to help you prepare for the experience. These sessions are an opportunity for you to deeply explore your goals and intentions for the work, learn skills for navigating your psychedelic terrain, build rapport with your therapist, share your history, and allow you to feel safe and resourced going into your psychedelic sessions.
60-minute one-time Entheogenic Evaluation and Medical Safety Assessment ($300)
If Psychedelic Therapy is recommended, our psychiatrist will provide medical oversight throughout the process. This initial evaluation allows our medical team an opportunity to review your history and develop treatment recommendations based on your specific needs.
Psychedelic Therapy isn’t for everyone. We are committed to keeping you safe, and will only provide these services to you if we are sure it’s safe for you physically and emotionally. If at any point in the process it becomes clear to us that the work is not appropriate for you, we are ethically required to discontinue services and will support you in finding other resources. If Psychedelic Therapy is NOT recommended, you will work in session to determine the best course of treatment with your therapist.
Psychedelic Therapy Series
If Psychedelic Therapy is recommended, you will work in session with your therapist to begin the preparation process and complete any additional disclosure processes and set up an initial Psychedelic Therapy Series. A Series is a set of psychedelic therapy sessions with an appropriate number of preparation and integration sessions. Typically we recommend a series of 2-3 weekly psychedelic cannabis sessions, or a series of 2-6 ketamine sessions, or sometimes a series of both. Intensive Retreats are usually a series of 2 to 4 medicine sessions in a 2 day to week long period. We generally don’t recommend single medicine sessions as a lot of important work happens on the second session of a series.
If Psychedelic Therapy is NOT recommended, you will work in session to determine the best course of treatment with your therapist.
Integration sessions ($150 each)
In the days and weeks after your Psychedelic Sessions, you will meet with your therapist to integrate your experiences. This is a crucial step in the process and creates the most lasting benefit. During these sessions you will review the content of the sessions, make meaning of them, and work to integrate them into your everyday life. Many clients report that their integration sessions are the richest part of the overall process and essential to their growth and transformation. We recommend one to three integration sessions after a psychedelic therapy session or series.
The initial consultation is for us to get to know each other, ask and answer questions, and determine if we might be a good fit to work together. This process includes reviewing the necessary informed consent forms, intakes, and other assessments
