How it’s done

At this stage, clinicians are still evaluating the effectiveness of their treatments, so exact dosing, number of treatments needed, and the approach to psychedelic therapy will vary depending on who is guiding you.

That said, most psychedelic therapy in clinical settings is conducted via three stages:


The first step is usually a preparatory consultation to ensure that you don’t have any contraindications to the treatment. This is also a good opportunity to discuss your personal background and any goals or concerns you have around psychedelic therapy.



The second phase involves ingesting, either orally or via injection, the psychedelic substance under the supervision of a trained therapist.

There are usually multiple sessions, depending on the type of psychedelic and the treatment plan. For example:

  • MDMA-assisted therapy usually involves at least three sessions.

  • Ketamine-assisted therapy involves between one and 12 sessions.

  • Psilocybin- and LSD-assisted therapy typically involve at least two sessions.



The final phase is the integration process, when the therapist and client work together to integrate meaning from the psychedelic experiences.
