Aftercare and Integration
Whilst we work on this section of our site please check out our dear friends at TRIPP Network for further information and support regarding psychedelic integration and aftercare.
Legal prohibition of psychedelic compounds has meant that psychedelic substances are still being used, but often in unheld and unsupported ways, or without adequate provision for post-experience integration. Casual practices that do not take place within a well-held and cared for setting, or without the appropriate preparation and psychological set can lead to difficult, disorienting, and sometimes traumatic experiences, which may be more difficult to understand and integrate without support.
TRIPP Network offers services that complement harm reduction initiatives, seeking to minimize the risks that can occur from the unsafe use of psychedelics, and from drug policies that contribute to the associated dangers. Research has shown that difficult psychedelic experiences that can be adequately processed and integrated can become powerful agents of positive psychological and spiritual transformation.
Psychedelic aftercare can cover a very broad spectrum, on one end assisting those that aim to support the insights and healing potential of their recreational/exploratory/ceremonial use into everyday life, and on the other end assisting those that seek support because they have had a psychologically harmful and traumatic psychedelic experience. TRIPP network is set up with the aim to assist those from across this spectrum that are seeking support.
TRIPP Network offers:
- A UK wide psychedelic aftercare therapist database
- A UK wide psychedelic research participation database
- A UK wide psychotherapist network that collaborates to develop and support psychedelic integration as a specialist field
