Proudly Supported by The Chacruna Institute for Psychedelic Plant Medicines and the Educational Foundation of America
As we await approval for 501(c)(3) status, we are incredibly grateful to have the Chacruna Institute for Psychedelic Plant Medicines as our fiscal sponsor and EFA as a founding donor. We are honored to be allied with such incredible organizations as we work hand-in-hand for inclusive, sustainable, and equitable psychedelic-assisted therapy.
Sequoia Center was founded as a response to the growing disparity between the need for psychedelic-assisted therapy and access to affordable services. As boutique for-profit psychedelic retreat centers continue to proliferate across the country, many people who are most in need of services find them financially out of reach. Our goal is to remedy this growing gap by pouring our funding into the services we provide, as an investment in our community.
To ensure that the future of psychedelic-assisted services is ethical, accessible, and evidenced-based, we value conducting outcomes research in addition to providing services to the community. We aim to help the psychedelic services ecosystem define best practices, develop clear ethical standards, train new practitioners, and educate the public.
We currently provide ketamine-assisted psychotherapy as well as psychedelic preparation and integration .
With the roll-out of Oregon's Psilocybin Services Program (mid-2023), we are collaborating and consulting with local psilocybin service sites to provide ancillary services (e.g., evaluations, treatment planning, integration, and other support services) for clients who would benefit. We do not provide access to psychedelics (aside from ketamine), but can support clients who wish to engage with these substances on their own, in order to reduce harm and ensure maximum healing benefits.
