If you’ve been following Psychedelic Assisted Therapy in Oregon, you may be surprised to see how much cost is going into being licensed.
“Together, those two licenses will cost her $12,000 a year. On top of that, she must spend thousands on a security system, liability insurance, and a 375-pound safe. All in, Jonas estimates she’ll spend $60,000 to open her service center and, at $3,500 a session, she expects to barely break even. “They have really made this hard,” Jonas, 56, says.”
For now I’m watching how this surge will find balance within the medical model.
I remember attending my first Psychedelic Conference in Portland a few years ago. One of the talks “Birthing and Psychedelics”. The inquiry of how birthing babies became a medical procedure when before that it was natural and at home. Hmmm. Personally I guide psychedelic journeys in people’s homes. Home is where the healing is. And yes, I was homeless as a child. And yes, most of my trauma occurred inside home.
I’d love to hear your insights, concerns, wishes as Psychedelics Spore around the globe.
I love this and that I’m stumbling upon your readings suddenly!
I also love how you were there for me with my second birth. 💕
I just wrote a short analysis for my statistics class last term in a research paper about the midwifery model of care and how midwives could easily be trained to administer psychedelic therapies to people as they are already in a sense doing this work already minus the psychedelics.
