Psychedelic Integration Therapy

What is a psychedelic experience?

A psychedelic experience is what an individual thinks and feels while a psychedelic drug is in their system, affecting their perception of the world and themselves. Some of the psychedelics that can cause a profound experience for the user include:

  • Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), also called acid
  • Psilocybin (derived from mushrooms)
  • Dimethyltryptamine (DMT)
  • Mescaline (derived from peyote cactus)
  • Ayahuasca

It’s not uncommon for people taking psychedelics to have profound experiences that shape their thinking. In fact, that’s why some cultures have a guide sit with the person ingesting the psychedelic substance to help shape their mental journey. 

Just because you didn’t have a guide present doesn’t mean you didn’t learn something important during your psychedelic experience. If you want help making sense of it, The Rose Center for Integrative Health is here. 

What do I do after my psychedelic experience?

Some psychedelic experiences are positive and uplifting, while others are painful and force the user to recall past traumas. Ultimately, the difference between writing the experience off as a “trip” and taking something meaningful from it often comes down to making sense of the experience afterward. 

At The Rose Center for Integrative Health, you find trained professionals who understand that these experiences have the power to dislodge the individual mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, creating an opening for new thinking but oftentimes also uncovering old scars.

Processing your experience with a trained, compassionate professional gives you the space to explore what you felt and what you learned. It’s a safe space to discuss any traumas in your life, and how you can make sense of them to move forward into your healthiest, most balanced self. 

What is psychedelic integration therapy?

Understanding your psychedelic experience is just the first step. Integrating it into your experience helps you put everything in its proper place. Whether you need to find your footing again, find a healthy way to deal with any uncovered pain, or find a way to ensure the vision you had of the best version of yourself becomes reality, The Rose Center for Integrative Health is here to help. 

The meaningfulness of your psychedelic experience doesn’t have to dissipate over time. Psychedelic integration therapy gives you space to consciously process it and learn to integrate any growth and healing lessons into your life moving forward.
