Our psilocybin assisted therapy program (PaT) is for individuals with a terminal diagnosis who are experiencing end-of-life distress and anxiety. The complexities and trauma surrounding end of life can get ‘stuck’ in the body, guarded by our nervous system to help keep us safe. Psychedelic medicines like psilocybin help to cultivate the non-attachment and self-compassion necessary to access areas of ‘stickiness’ that are otherwise difficult to reach. From here, we work around the nervous system, granting us a greater ability to access and release stored trauma.
The program is moving from exemptions attained through the Health Canada approved Special Access Program to exemptions attained through a Clinical Trial process.
If you are thinking of applying to be a participant in a Roots to Thrive program, here are some questions to help you decide if this is a good fit for you.
Please consider supporting those with terminal health conditions who are facing end-of-life distress, and help us advance psychedelic research in the process!
