Psychedelic Therapy in San Diego
Holistic. Legal. Safe.
State of mind affects the body; the body affects the state of mind. While the science behind this is still being studied, we know one thing is certain: when problems arise, we can't only treat the body. Our team can holistically treat individuals using psychedelics and altering one's state of mind.
If you've been failed by traditional medicine and are ready to explore alternative treatments with the potential for long-lasting relief, turn to psychedelic therapies at Resilience Integrative Wellness.
Psychedelics are defined as a subclass of hallucinogenic drugs that trigger altered states of consciousness. There are both legal and illegal types. Here at our psychedelic therapy center in San Diego, we only use legal varieties in controlled doses, all within highly controlled environments overseen by medical professionals.
Psychedelics can be classified in many different ways. Some of the classifications we use are “natural,” such as psilocybin, which is found in certain mushrooms. We also employ the use of synthetic psychedelics, like ketamine. With help from our team of professionals, you can get a psychedelic treatment plan that puts you on the path to wellness.
What to Expect
To help ensure positive experiences, our psychedelic-assisted psychotherapies are meticulously planned with curated elements. Comfort and safety are top priorities here at Resilience Integrative Wellness, and the entire process is supervised by an experienced medical professional.
During this time, we’ll determine your medical and psychosocial suitability for psychedelic treatment therapy.
Should you be cleared by our professionals, you’ll partake in an intention-setting exercise. Through reflection, communication with a facilitator, or even journaling, you’ll create a roadmap for your journey, noting what you hope to get out of the entire experience.
Now that you’ve set your intention, it’s time for the treatment itself. Your appropriate dose will be carefully administered in a private, relaxing treatment room. If at any time you need support, your wellness ally is there, ready to assist.
Now that your session is over, it’s time to process the emotions, thoughts, or feelings that arose during or in the time since your treatment. Our team is here with you every step of the way. Because the most integral part of your wellness plan is you, we’ll discuss the experience and how best to proceed with your treatment.
Reconnect for Life-Long Wellness
Experience new insights and ways of thinking and feel more invested in the life you’re living, all thanks to the introspection brought on by psychedelic-assisted therapy.
A clear, positive mind makes way for a healthy body. Through the use of psychedelics like ketamine, it’s possible to rewire the body, helping you find relief from physical symptoms.
Reconnect to yourself and the world around you, finding a renewed sense of purpose. Go beyond the mind and body, finding relief on a new, spiritual level.
How Do Psychedelics Work?
At its core, psychedelic treatments work by activating systems in the brain that are responsible for the regulation of anxiety, stress, and trauma. We all have connections that link neurons in the brain to neurons in the rest of the body. It’s possible for those connections to deteriorate or become altered, and with help from psychedelics, the brain increases its ability to form new connections and pathways.
It’s also believed that psychedelics have an effect on our Default Mode Network, a brain region associated with self-criticism. During treatment, that region is temporarily quieted, making way for deeper introspection. Once the treatment is over, that region has been shown to work with others more cohesively.
While the future of psychedelics as an alternative therapy treatment is promising, it’s important to note that efficacy is still being studied, with more research required before any guarantees can be made. Just like with traditional medicine, results vary from individual to individual.
Psychedelics affect a person's thinking and mood and can induce a number of psychological effects. What sets them apart from other psychoactive substances (like cannabis) is that they're capable of producing an "altered" or even "enlightened" state of consciousness.
There are both legal and illegal types of psychedelics. The kinds we use here at our clinic (mainly ketamine) are legal, safe to use within our controlled environment, and are not considered to be addictive in the small doses we use.
A number of disorders and their symptoms have been shown to be alleviated with the use of psychedelic-assisted therapy, including anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain, and substance addiction.
