What are the Next Steps In Your Healing Journey?


Learn How to Safely Taper Antidepressants in Preparation for Psychedelic Therapies



Despite broad use and some benefits, antidepressants have several limitations


Their need for daily use, short and long-term side effects, as well as withdrawal reactions can complicate therapy and introduce risks to stopping 


This leaves people feeling dependent and stuck with antidepressants, even when benefits are unclear or side effects are present


Unfortunately, many professionals don't feel confident or comfortable helping persons taper antidepressants resulting in increasing and unnecessary long-term use


But what alternatives are there?

And how can you safely transition away from antidepressants? 


Psychedelic therapies are rapidly emerging as evidence-based alternatives for managing mental health conditions treated with antidepressants


This course aims to inform and educate about preventing the risks of antidepressant discontinuation, and strategies for proceeding safely


It also includes information on the interactions between antidepressants and various psychedelic substances
