What is Integration?
Integration is a common phrase within the psychedelic community. Integration is the process of understanding the insights that you have gained through psychedelic experiences and applying them in a lasting way to your life. The word “integrate” means “to make whole.” In other words, when we integrate, we take the pieces of our experience and bring them together in a way that makes sense and that can produce a permanent change in perceptions or behavior.
Psychedelic therapy remains an experimental treatment, which means that people can usually only access this treatment via clinical trials. Some types of psychedelic therapy include:
- Drug-assisted therapy: This is when a provider offers traditional treatments, such as psychotherapy, alongside psychedelics.
- Psychedelics alone: A provider might only give a person a psychedelic drug, with no additional treatment.
- Guided therapy: In some forms of psychedelic treatment, a person guides a person through the psychedelic “high,” offering therapeutic suggestions and helping the person remain calm.
Taking entheogens can be like air travel: people do it all the time, it’s usually fine, but when it’s not fine, it’s sometimes very bad. We’ve been there. And that’s where an experienced GUIDE can make the difference in the outcome.
