Why a Psychedelic Interventionist?
The why is easy. We’ve desperately needed psychedelics to be available in the medical community for decades.
In today’s mental health and addiction treatment, “Interventionists” all except the Transformational Model of Intervention exclude psychedelics from their practices, training, education and or support.
The good news is things have significantly changed and the science has caught up with the experience of the people.
All providers are now on notice: It is now required that all models of addiction and mental health treatment must include qualified psychedelic education, training, and support for their certificate holders.
We are currently organizing how to implement the education and support protocols while people like Awakn Life Sciences are taking care of the medical protocols.
From my perspective, the field of mental health and addiction treatment do not want people to consume things that “feel” good in fear of the Johnson model of intervention of “once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic”. This way of thinking is not soundly based.
I really wish that the news of A.A founder, Bill Wilson, utilizing psychedelics as a part of his own mental health was highlighted and spoken about more. It’s such important information in for the recovery field. Things are changing and quickly and its true a lot of people are living in psychedelic recovery! 🙂
Also the term Intervention itself has drastically changed in the last 80 years. I believe the “intervention” model was to validate pseudo professionals to be able to access what a medical provider can accept as a valuable person to provide service. Before Interventionists were introduced into the medical model The addiction recovery community itself used to help one another who struggled in particular ways because they shared their likeness. When the medical system started adjusting what is accepted, they needed to validate regular people by creating bodies of educators to oversee pseudo professionals or said differently Interventionists’.
A concern for consideration is the criteria that these other interventionists teach families is not of today’s science. Should it be questioned is up to you. Who actually gives the disease for life diagnosis anyhow?
My question to you is, who decides if a person is an alcoholic and can these providers ever change their mind?
It’s a big shift to consider so a lot of providers are moving into the psychedelic coaching communities until they can realize that they are safe to do so in other networks. How do you find them?
There’s a lot of different perspectives so the main advice that I teach people, is how to take responsibility of their lives, be accountable for the things that they choose, and help themselves find a solution.
Myself specifically, with the original transformational model of intervention in consideration, have learned that helping people come together to create a solution has much more value than pointing out the differences or focusing on the problem as a constant point of engagement . It’s more about acceptance, understanding, and options toward the solution as the constant point of engagement instead of debate.
For me, one the most exciting things about being a psychedelic interventionist is the ability to finally feel safe to share with the world that psychedelics are being supported through science and mental health leadership around the world!
People thought I was out of scope in 2005 when I shared that psychedelics will soon be viewed as highly valuable tool to help people in recovery; more so than the current “disease for life” model. In the same way people used to hear Interventionist and would think, drugs, alcohol, behavioral health, and so on.
Now when you hear The Psychedelic Interventionist™ you automatically think solution, health and well-being.
Helping people learn the difference, Including psychedelics are not the best thing for everyone. People can only teach you what they know. For the last 50 years there has been an alternative narrative around psychedelics that is not sound in science. It took all these people to take a risk and have the experience so science would have a chance at considering it; thank you, to all those that continue to lead the way.
Keep in mind that some licensed professionals with training just over the last 5 years on psychedelics should not be given full rein as there may be more qualified unlicensed people that are yet to be accredited. Either way, we are very short on qualified providers no matter their accreditation.
There are a lot of different kinds of psychedelics and depending on what psychedelic you choose and the belief system of what surrounds the experience. It’s important to consider things before using psychedelics that originated from indigenous medicines and molecular medicines. After all there is a difference.
There’s a lot to learn and the learning process cannot be rushed.
One way to teach psychedelics is to make it simple and teach people the “simplicities of psychedelics”. Simply stating and scientifically speaking, almost all psychedelics are non-harmful if consumed within a varied amount that’s known to not cause harm.
With all this said, I’m not here to tell you to do psychedelics as the only choice over alcohol and other depression medications as there is value in both methods. Some people don’t know how so they need a medial professional to walk them through it. Its ok we all need support.
Now why you would hire The Psychedelic interventionist™?
It’s simple; to help you Learn the Difference in all these considerations and to help guide you through; The medical field is overcoming stigma about psychedelics and that’s a good thing but most inpatient addiction and mental health providers are getting qualified people on staff as fast as possible.
Humanity has been going for thousands of years and we are in this together. New ways and technologies have always been a struggle for humanity.
We’re growing together and thriving together, and I truly welcome you to join our community.
