  • What is Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy? Exploring an Innovative Healing Approach
    Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy is an emerging and innovative treatment approach that integrates the use of psychedelic substances such as psilocybin, LSD, 5-MeO-DMT and ayahuasca with traditional psychotherapy techniques. This therapy aims to facilitate profound psychological healing and personal growth, addressing conditions like depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction. By altering consciousness and promoting deep introspection, it helps individuals confront and resolve deep-seated emotional issues, leading to transformative experiences and lasting change.

At MindScape Retreat, we ensure the safety and suitability of this therapy for each individual through a comprehensive pre-screening process. This includes a detailed evaluation of mental health history and current psychological state. Upon arrival at our facility, we conduct a thorough medical screening, including an EKG to check heart health, a full blood workup to assess overall physical condition, and a liver panel to ensure liver health. These screenings are crucial to ascertain that participants are physically and mentally prepared for the transformative experience of psychedelic-assisted therapy. It's important to note that psychedelic-assisted therapy is not suitable for everyone. People with certain mental health conditions, like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those with a family history of these conditions, may not be suitable candidates.

  • Are Psychedelics safe?
    Despite certain exclusion criteria, recent scientific research strongly indicates that psychedelic plant medicines are considerably safe, often presenting fewer risks than substances like alcohol, nicotine, and even cannabis. At MindScape Retreat, we use these non-addictive and non-toxic plant medicines, ensuring their safety and efficacy under the supervision of trained professionals in a carefully managed set and setting. For Ibogaine therapy, we acknowledge its potential heart risks, which is why we conduct a rigorous pre-screening process including an EKG, comprehensive blood work, and a liver panel. For individuals who may not be suitable for Ibogaine due to these risks, Psilocybin presents a viable alternative, especially for those seeking treatment for addiction, as it does not carry the same cardiovascular concerns. This careful approach allows us to provide personalized, safe, and effective treatment options for our guests.
  • Can I Use Psychedelic Medicines If I'm On Antidepressants?
    At MindScape Retreat, the suitability for psychedelic-assisted therapy is determined by our clinical team on an individual basis. Generally, individuals on antidepressants, including tricyclic antidepressants, serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), MAOIs, and St. John’s Wort, are advised to gradually discontinue their medication under professional supervision prior to starting psychedelic therapy. This precaution ensures safety and enhances the effectiveness of the therapy. Scientific evidence has increasingly shown that psychedelics can be more effective in addressing symptoms of depression compared to traditional antidepressants. Psychedelics offer a unique approach by potentially 'resetting' the brain, fostering healing and growth, as opposed to merely masking symptoms as some medications might. This 'reset' can be crucial for long-term recovery and well-being, making the gradual weaning off of antidepressants a beneficial step towards a more holistic and transformative healing experience.
