As interest in psychedelics has spiked in recent years, many people are referring to this boom as a “psychedelic renaissance”. Although psychedelics may have the potential to be an effective therapy for a variety of ailments, it is in everyone’s best interest to incorporate strategies for safe use, managed use, abstinence, non-judgement, and addressing conditions of use along with the use itself. This is where harm reduction, a set of practical strategies and ideas, comes in.
Join us for an informational webinar focused on understanding harm reduction and how its principles may be directly applied to psychedelic practices and therapy today! Our panel of professional nurses is ready to share their passion for harm reduction, why it is vital moving forward, and the current challenges with implementation.
