Zoom Webinar

What and where are the boundaries of support in psychedelic care? What are the limits of peer support versus clinical care, and vice versa? As increasing numbers of people access psychedelics through various means—whether through legal therapy or recreational use, and everything in between—these questions become increasingly important.

Join Fluence and Fireside Project as we explore the intersection of peer support and clinical care in a live webinar. Topics we’ll explore include:

The latest data around psychedelic use and the resulting need
Defining and demystifying peer support
Defining psychedelic harm reduction and integration as a clinical practice

Imagining an ecosystem of care that bridges both approaches

There will be an opportunity for webinar participants to participate in a live Q&A.

This webinar was recorded live/online March 20, 2023 @ 3:00 - 4:00 PM EST.
