What is this all about? And where is it happening?

There is an increasing public awareness of the benefits of psychedelic medications, when used judiciously by professionals, to assist with healing from the conditions of depression, post traumatic stress, and anxiety. Since the 2018 publication of Michael Pollan’s best-selling book, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence, there have been numerous articles written and shows produced featuring the use of psychedelic substances. (See: New York Times, Forbes , Wall Street Journal, 60-Minutes).

As of now, most psychedelic substances are categorized by the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) as Schedule I drugs. Thus, they are not available for use by physicians. However, psilocybin (from “magic mushrooms”) and methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) have been studied extensively and the success of those studies have inspired Johns Hopkins, UCSF and UC Berkeley (among other institutions world-wide) to create new psychedelic centers. There are on-going clinical trials evaluating the appropriate protocols and doses to be used. We, as a healing community, are awaiting the evidence to persuade the FDA to make access to some of these medications legal. (See: MAPS.)

In the meantime, there is a psychedelic medication that is safe, legal and available, called ketamine. Be the Change in Mental Health is treating patients with this medication now and will add the other medications to our treatment options as they become legally available. Our flagship clinic is at 2800 Cleveland Ave. Ste C in Santa Rosa, CA. 96403
