Psilocybin & Psychedelic Assisted Therapy in Florida

Psychedelic healing can be one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences a person can go through, and we want to honor your decision to take these initial steps. You may be thinking: Florida has only recently legalized cannabis. How can I possibly have a safe psychedelic experience?

If you’ve arrived here after reading about psychedelics in the news or because of Michael Pollan’s book, How To Change Your Mind, then it’s likely you’re seeking psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, or the use of psychedelics under the guide of a trained therapist.

Unfortunately, this kind of healing is currently only available through participation in a clinical study. The reason is that therapists are mental health professionals licensed by their state governments. In order to keep their license to practice emotional healing work, they must abide by the rules of the state— i.e. no psychedelics.

However, a therapeutic psychedelic experience is still possible. Therapeutic simply means “to have a beneficial effect on the body or mind.” Someone experienced with psychedelics and trained in a healing discipline like shamanism or somatic release can thus guide someone through a psychedelic journey without facing the same legal repercussions as a licensed therapist.

At Psychedelic Passage, our network is committed to providing a safe, supportive container for therapeutic psychedelic experiences. Our network of pre-vetted facilitators has an extensive background with psychedelics, and they have been trained in various disciplines to create safe containers for this kind of transformational healing.

Psychedelic Therapy: A Revolutionary Approach to Mental Health

Psychedelic therapy is a relatively new therapeutic approach that involves the use of psychedelic drugs such as magic mushrooms and ketamine to treat various mental health conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), mood disorders, treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, and addiction. 

This innovative approach has gained popularity in recent years due to its highly effective results and the growing awareness of the limitations of traditional treatments for mental illness. One of the most significant benefits of psychedelic therapy is its ability to treat PTSD. PTSD is a severe anxiety disorder that can occur after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. 

Traditional treatments for PTSD, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication, have limited effectiveness in treating this condition. However, psychedelic therapy has shown promising results in treating PTSD. Studies have shown that the use of psychedelics such as psilocybin can help reduce symptoms of PTSD, such as flashbacks, nightmares, and anxiety.

Ketamine therapy is another type of therapy that has been found to be effective in treating mood disorders such as depression and anxiety. Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic that has been used for decades in medical settings. 

However, it has also been found to have a rapid antidepressant effect when used in lower doses. Ketamine therapy has been shown to be effective in treating treatment-resistant depression, which is a type of depression that does not respond to traditional treatments such as antidepressants.

Psychedelic psychotherapy studies have shown that psychedelic psychotherapy can help individuals gain a deeper understanding of their emotions and thought patterns, leading to a more profound sense of self-awareness and healing.

Another benefit of psychedelic therapy is its potential to treat substance abuse. Substance abuse is a severe problem that affects millions of people worldwide. Traditional treatments for substance abuse, such as medication-assisted treatment and behavioral therapy, have limited effectiveness. 

Though research into psychedelic therapy is still in its early stages, preliminary results suggest that this type of therapy has the potential to revolutionize mental health treatment. 

But psychedelics are not just for those who are struggling with a mental health disorder. Through the practice of microdosing, or taking small doses of a psychedelic substance a few times a week, emotionally healthy people use these substances to enhance creativity, optimize work performance, and step into more compassionate leadership.

The Current Legislation on Psychedelics in Florida

Psychedelic substances have been controversial for decades and have undergone strict regulation in most states in the US. Florida is no exception, and the current legislation of psychedelics in the state is quite restrictive.

As of now, Florida law prohibits the possession, sale, and use of most psychedelics, including LSD, psilocybin (found in magic mushrooms), mescaline, and DMT. These substances are classified as Schedule I drugs, which means they are considered to have no medical use, which has evidently been disproved by emerging studies.

Recently, there has been a push to legalize the medical use of psychedelics in Florida. In March 2021, State Representative Michael Grieco introduced a bill to legalize the use of psilocybin mushrooms for medical purposes. The bill proposes that qualified medical professionals be allowed to prescribe psilocybin to patients suffering from conditions such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

While the bill is still in the early stages of the legislative process, its introduction is a positive sign that the conversation around psychedelic substances is changing in Florida. If the bill passes, it would make Florida the fourth state in the US to legalize psilocybin for medical use, after Oregon, California, and Washington.

Your Legal Options for Therapeutic Psychedelic Experiences in Florida

In Florida, you have two options for psychedelic healing: ketamine clinics and guided psychedelic journeys. It’s important to note that if you do decide to pursue a guided psychedelic journey, you are responsible for sourcing your own medicine. 

1. Ketamine Clinics

Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic, and although it’s not a traditional psychedelic, it can provide rapid transformation. Used most commonly for depression, ketamine can take a person out of their negative or limiting narrative and gift them a new perspective.

Almost all clinics administer ketamine through an IV, while some use oral lozenges. Because the medicine can elicit very powerful experiences, you’ll want to make sure you’re given adequate support. Clinics can vary widely, with some providing an in-house therapist in a mutli-week program and others providing no support at all.

Despite the illegality of psychedelics in Florida, there are many therapists and non-therapists alike who are trained in helping people integrate their psychedelic experiences without actually providing the medicines themselves. Before choosing to connect with a ketamine clinic, we suggest you learn more about the benefits and pitfalls of ketamine therapy.

2. Guided Psychedelic Journeys with Psychedelic Passage

At Psychedelic Passage, we have a deep commitment to sharing the benefits of psychedelic healing with everyone. We believe that these powerful medicines are not meant to be kept for oneself, but should be shared for the betterment of all.

Our comprehensive 5-week program is designed to facilitate personal transformation and is tailored to meet the unique needs of each client. We take great care in matching each client with the most suitable facilitator, and we also offer the option to participate in psychedelic ceremonies from the comfort of your own home.

You have a wide range of psychedelic options to choose from and a large network of pre-vetted, local facilitators to connect with. Our network of skilled and compassionate facilitators is dedicated to supporting you through every stage of your journey, from preparation, to ceremony, to integration, and in whatever way best suits your needs.
