The Importance of trained guides and personnel for psychedelic-assisted therapy

Medical guides and trained personnel are crucial for the safe and effective use of psychedelic-assisted therapy. Psychedelic substances such as psilocybin, LSD, and MDMA have the potential to cause intense psychological experiences and can have significant effects on a person’s mental and physical state. While these substances have shown promising results in clinical trials, they can also produce powerful and unpredictable effects, which can be difficult to manage without proper training and experience. Therefore, it is important to have knowledgeable and experienced guides who can help people navigate these experiences.

At ReWild Medicine we have developed a unique program of psychedelic-assisted ecotherapy using ketamine. Our experienced guides are highly trained and implement safety protocols at each step for patients to undergo medically monitored ketamine-assisted psychotherapy.

Trained personnel, such as therapists or healthcare professionals, can help individuals prepare for the experience, guide them through the psychedelic experience, and provide support and integration afterwards. They can help individuals process difficult emotions and experiences that may arise during the psychedelic experience, and provide a safe and supportive environment in which to do so.

Medical guides can also help ensure that individuals are taking the appropriate dose of the substance, that the substance is pure and of high quality, and that there are no contraindications or potential risks to the individual’s health or wellbeing. They can monitor individuals’ physical and mental states during the experience, and intervene if necessary to prevent harm.

Overall, the use of trained personnel and medical guides is essential for the safe and effective use of psychedelic-assisted therapy. It is important that individuals seeking psychedelic therapy work with trained professionals who have experience in this area, to ensure that they receive the support they need to have a positive and transformative experience.
