Psychedelic Therapy & Professional Guides in Centennial, Colorado

When we dive into the world of psychedelics, our minds often drift to the great state of Colorado. Colorado is undoubtedly a leader in the psychedelic movement, being the first to pass groundbreaking psychedelic laws in the country.

With a strong sense of community, Centennial is the perfect place to dive into the psychedelic scene, conveniently located just 20 minutes away from Denver, which happens to be the first city in America to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms.

Recent milestones in Colorado, including the passage of Proposition 122 and Senate Bill 23-290, have reshaped the psychedelic landscape, as they have decriminalized all naturally occurring psychedelic substances.

And the good times keep on rolling with these new laws. Accessing psychedelics and psychedelic therapy will be easier than ever. Researching these substances will also be a smoother journey, unlocking the potential to uncover even more benefits of psychedelic therapy.

Today, we’re digging into what we already know about the benefits psychedelic therapy has to offer, along with how to determine if psychedelics are right for you.

Building upon our previous article on psychedelic therapy in Colorado, we’ll also provide you with legal options available for a therapeutic psychedelic experience, how you can find a psychedelic guide near you, and all of the areas we service in Centennial. Let’s get started!

The Benefits of Psychedelic Therapy

Lucky for you Coloradans, psychedelic therapy is just around the corner, set to become accessible within a year. In the meantime, let’s dive into the fascinating world of what psychedelic therapy can offer.

Between 1940 and 1960, psychedelics emerged as potential treatments for various mental conditions. Particularly, LSD took the spotlight due to its ability to alter a person’s perception of reality.

Under the brand name Delysid, LSD was initially used to explore schizophrenia. Psychiatrists would ingest LSD to better comprehend their schizophrenic patients’ experiences, given the belief that LSD mimicked the disorder’s effects.

By the early 1950s, LSD began to find a place in talk therapy, proving effective in treating depression and alcoholism. As time rolled on, more psychedelics joined the ranks, such as psilocybin, each offering insights into the treatment of even more mental disorders.

Unfortunately, psychedelic research came to a halt in 1970 when the Controlled Substances Act was signed into law, classifying all psychedelics as Schedule I substances.

Fast-forward to today, interest in psychedelics is resurging, and we’ve certainly learned a lot about the benefits of psychedelics over the years. We’ve discovered that LSD isn’t just for altering moods – research has proved its effectiveness in treating both depression and anxiety.

So, why are psychedelics so effective in treating depression and anxiety? Psychedelics work by promoting neuroplasticity in the brain, or in other words, the brain’s ability to change and adapt due to experiences and surroundings.

By essentially rewiring the brain, psychedelics are believed to restructure and create neural connections, leading to disruptions in negative thought patterns and promoting more adaptive thinking.

The altered consciousness and perception that psychedelics induce provide individuals with anxiety relief by breaking anxious thought patterns and creating a sense of detachment from their surroundings, themselves, and their anxious feelings.

The realm of psychedelics extends to those facing terminal illnesses, as these individuals often experience depression and anxiety. The use of psychedelics provides invaluable support and replaces the fear of death with peace, relief, and acceptance.

As life draws to a close, individuals often turn towards religion as a sense of peace and comfort. Psychedelic experiences have the potential to induce a mystical and spiritual experience, enhancing the quality of their remaining days.

Trauma and PTSD also lie within the sphere of psychedelic healing. By granting a new perspective on traumatic events, psychedelics promote emotional openness and help individuals process their memories in a less distressing way.

Take MDMA, for instance – it’s not just for parties. It’s proven effective in treating PTSD by releasing serotonin and dopamine, creating feelings of relaxation, love, and empathy. In addition to treating PTSD, MDMA is also effective in treating postpartum depression (PPD).

Unfortunately, many women suffer from PPD, and relief isn’t always easy to come by. The use of MDMA can improve intimate relationships by fostering a deeper connection with others, such as their baby (or babies) and other loved ones, by increasing feelings of empathy and love.

But it doesn’t stop at medical conditions. Psychedelics have the potential to expand the mind, opening you to new thoughts, a deeper appreciation of the world, and a stronger connection to those around you and even a higher power.

However, keep in mind that just like any medical treatment, psychedelics might not suit everyone. Thorough research is key before embarking on this therapeutic journey.

Are Psychedelics Right for You?

Without a doubt, the world of psychedelic therapy is brimming with benefits that have the power to reshape lives. So, why aren’t more people diving into the transformative waters of psychedelic therapy?

While effective for many, certain individuals are at a higher risk of experiencing negative effects when using psychedelics. So, let’s take a deep dive into who might want to skip the psychedelic ride.

Suppose you’ve been diagnosed with certain mental health conditions, such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or psychosis. In that case, it’s best to refrain from using psychedelics, as these substances have the potential to intensify symptoms of these disorders, like delusions and hallucinations.

It’s important to note that engaging in psychedelics isn’t a one-way ticket to developing a mental disorder. However, if those disorders run in your family, the use of psychedelics can bring out underlying symptoms in you.

Statistically, there is a 10% chance you’ll develop schizophrenia if you have a first-degree relative with the disorder, 40% if both of your parents have schizophrenia, and 50% if your identical twin was diagnosed with it. Using psychedelics may increase these chances.

You should also use caution when using psychedelics if you have a heart condition, as the effects of psychedelics can induce hypertension and tachycardia. If seizures run in the family tree, psychedelics may not be in your favor, either.

It’s also best to steer clear from psychedelic use if you’ve undergone a traumatic event recently or have suicidal ideations. Being in the wrong state of mind during a psychedelic experience can heighten your chances of experiencing a “bad trip.”

Additionally, it’s best to avoid using psychedelics if you currently take antidepressants, as this combination can lead to blunted psychedelic effects. You may be tempted to increase the dosage to compensate for the lack of effects, but this also increases the risk of developing serotonin syndrome.

Other medications that shouldn’t be combined with psychedelics include mood stabilizers, stimulants, antipsychotics, and other recreational drugs.

Additionally, it’s best to stay away from psychedelics if you’re under the age of 25, as your brain hasn’t fully developed, and psychedelics’ touch on neuroplasticity might shake things up a bit more than you bargained for.

Of course, if you choose to engage with psychedelics, make sure you consult with your healthcare provider beforehand. Their job is to keep you healthy and safe!

Options for Legal Psychedelic Experiences in Centennial, Colorado

Thanks to Prop 122, a world of possibilities is now open to you when it comes to finding a legal therapeutic psychedelic experience. Although psychedelic healing centers won’t be available until late 2024, you don’t have to wait until then to get started on your healing journey.

In Centennial, the two options available to you now include ketamine clinics and guided psychedelic journeys with Psychedelic Passage.

1. Ketamine Clinics

The buzz around Ketamine therapy is on the rise across the nation, as ketamine is the only FDA-approved psychedelic treatment. If you’re grappling with treatment-resistant depression, ketamine therapy may be a good choice for you.

Ketamine is appealing due to its quick onset of effects, regardless of the administration route. The effects of ketamine are typically felt within 5 minutes and can last up to an hour, with the immediate effects subsiding between 1-3 hours.

As of now, ketamine must be administered by a healthcare provider at a licensed facility. And because multiple sessions are required in order to maintain the benefits of your experience, accessibility may become an issue.

It’s also not recommended to drive after your ketamine session concludes, meaning you’ll need someone to drive you home, leading to even more accessibility issues. In addition, not all ketamine clinics offer integration, which is crucial to the healing process.

While searching for a ketamine clinic near you, make sure you explore what services they offer. To ensure you’re fully informed about ketamine, we encourage you to listen to our discussion on the additional benefits and pitfalls of ketamine therapy.

2. Guided Psychedelic Journeys With Psychedelic Passage

Psychedelic experiences are like doors to transformation and healing; opening up pathways to personal growth you might have never imagined. We understand how important this is, and that’s why we at Psychedelic Passage are committed to making this journey a reality for you.

We recognize that everyone’s route to healing is unique, which is why we’ve crafted our programs to be completely tailor-made, ensuring all your specific needs are catered to.

Our 5-week ceremonial program includes preparation and integration sessions, trip-sitting from your psychedelic guide, resources on the psychedelic therapy process, microdose coaching, and text/email support.

Our network of guides span across the country, so regardless of where you are, they can travel to you. Their years of experience with psychedelics allows them to effectively work with a wide range of psychedelics, giving you the freedom to choose any medicine for your journey.

We also offer a microdosing program where our network of psychedelic guides provide microdose coaching sessions on Zoom, resources on microdosing, and additional support over text/email.

If you’re having trouble sourcing your medicine, then you’re in luck. In the state of Colorado, your psychedelic guide can gift you with a natural psychedelic substance for your journey. However, you cannot pay them for this, as this would be considered as selling.

That being said, the price of your program will remain the same regardless if your psychedelic guide gifts you with the psychedelic substance or not. This is because you’re paying for the service and not the psychedelic medicine.

When it comes to costs, we are devoted to making sure everyone has an equal opportunity to experience the powers of psychedelics, which is why our network of guides offer income-based pricing for our programs and financial assistance if needed.
