What Are The Benefits Of Psilocybin?

Research suggests psilocybin may help address depression, anxiety, trauma, and addiction. Studies have also found it can increase a sense of spiritual well-being in participants. Studies on additional benefits of psilocybin are currently underway.

How Do I Qualify As A Client?

A screening questionnaire will be reviewed and discussed at your preparation session to determine if psilocybin services are a good fit. However, in general clients must meet these requirements:

*Must be 21 years of age.
*Must not have taken Lithium in the last 30 days.
*Some medical conditions that prevent one’s ability to participate in psilocybin services include conditions such as uncontrolled hypertension, severe cardiac conditions, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. Patients in poor physical or psychological health may be required to obtain clearance from the appropriate specialist for clearance. 

How Do Psilocybin Services Work in Oregon?

Oregon’s program is designed as an adult use model. Therefore, it is not covered by insurance, and services are provided outside of the medical model. Clients purchase and consume products directly from a service center, and the facilitator of their choice sits with them during their journey.  The facilitator will also provide a preparation session, and an integration session to help the client get the most out of their psilocybin journey. The client must remain on premises at the facility during the effects of the psilocybin. The length of your time spent at the facility is dependent on the amount of product consumed on the day of your journey. Any product not consumed is properly disposed of by the facility and the client is refunded for any unused portion.  Food and beverages may be consumed during the session is they are sealed and store-bought.  Items that are gentler on the stomach are recommended as some clients experience nausea with psilocybin.

Are Psilocybin Services Safe?

Psilocybin is a safe substance in most circumstances.  It has been found to be of a low toxicity and has not resulted in any reported deaths related to overdose.  It can increase blood pressure transiently, and so would not be a good fit for someone with a serious cardiac condition or uncontrolled hypertension. It is also known to increase the symptoms of schizophrenia and can lead to a greater chance of mania in patients with bipolar disorder. The screening in the preparation session is designed to rule out patients that would be at higher risk due to these conditions.  Additional clinical data is needed on the applications of psilocybin for these clients before it can be safely administered. 

Are Group Sessions Available?

Lindsey may accommodate small groups of up to 4 people. Reach out with any questions regarding arrangements for group sessions.
