Trip Sitting & Guiding in Oregon
We Provide Trip Sitting Services in Every Major City:
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.**
Trip Sitting in Oregon
On November 3rd, 2020, Oregon became the first state to decriminalize all federally scheduled substances with the passing of Measure 110, which was approved with 58.46% of votes in favor of the measure. Measure 110 makes personal possession of a controlled substance no more than a Class E violation, resulting in a maximum fine of $100. Previously, the violation would be considered a Class A misdemeanor, with a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a $6,250 fine.
This is a paradigm-shifting event because it moves the conversation surrounding drug abuse and addiction from a criminal conversation to a mental health conversation. Measure 110 also means that all psychedelics are decriminalized in the entire state of Oregon.

The Future of Psychedelics in Oregon
Also on November 3rd, 2020, Oregon became the first state to approve a therapeutic Psilocybin Services Program with the passing of Measure 109, which was confirmed with 55.75% of votes in favor of the measure. Measure 109 legalizes, regulates and taxes the manufacture, sale, and administration of psilocybin for mental health purposes.
Though the program won’t roll out until 2022, it would allow licensed facilities and service providers “to legally manufacture psilocybin products and provide psilocybin services to persons 21 years of age and older,” with services defined as “a preparation session; an administration session; and an integration session.”
Perhaps what’s most interesting is that the measure would create an Oregon Psilocybin Advisory Board that would include representatives from diverse backgrounds, including a federally recognized Oregon Indian tribe; the Addiction and Mental Health Planning and Advisory Council; a licensed psychologist; a licensed naturopathic physician; a mycologist; and a person experienced in psilocybin harm reduction, to name a few.
