Trip Sitters & Psychedelic Guides in Massachusetts

We Provide Trip Sitting Services in The Following Cities:

The decriminalization of psychedelics in certain states and cities has allowed us to trip sit for people like you while drastically reducing the risk of criminal repercussions (psychedelics are still federally illegal substances). The one caveat to us being able to provide trip sitting and guiding services in decriminalized areas is that you must procure your substance of choice for personal consumption—we are unable to help with sourcing.

We are here to facilitate intentional psychedelic experiences where you feel supported along the entire journey—from preparation to sacred ceremonial experience to integration. We facilitate your inner healing by holding a safe, comfortable, non-judgmental space.

**Psychedelic Passage does not provide psychoactive or illicit substances nor are we licensed therapists. We are a trip sitting service operating within the legal realm as individuals who identify as being knowledgeable in personal development, non-ordinary states of consciousness, and harm reduction techniques.**

The Future of Psychedelics in Massachusetts

Psychedelic reform in Massachusetts will continue to gain momentum. Interestingly, this isn’t the first time that psychedelic-focused initiatives have been centered in Massachusetts. In 2011, John Halpern, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, published findings of an MDMA-assisted psychotherapy study that focused on long-term effects of the substance as well as response in cancer patients with anxiety.
 
In 2021, Mike Connolly, who is a State Representative for 26th Middlesex District that includes parts of Somerville and Cambridge, expressed intent in filing a bill that would create a committee “to study whether Massachusetts should decriminalize natural psychedelics and legalize their administration in therapeutic settings statewide.” Massachusetts voters may have the ability to vote on these issues as early as 2022.
