Interest in using psychedelic substances for mental health is rising, and the wealth of research shows how beneficial psychedelic medicine can be. This research frequently emphasizes the importance of preparation and integration therapy, and the amount of research has increased dramatically over the last decade and continues to accelerate.
Numinus is proud to be at the forefront of making innovative and safe psychedelic-assisted therapy treatments accessible and legally available to those who need them. However, we also recognize that some people may use psychedelic substances without the proper support. Our intention in offering psychedelic integration is to provide education and harm reduction for those who have already had a psychedelic experience and need help integrating that experience into their lives.
At Numinus, our team of experienced psychedelic integration practitioners is here to support you in a non-judgmental and compassionate way. Whether you need help processing a challenging psychedelic experience or want to connect with experts to unpack what you’ve learned, we’re here to help.

Psychedelic harm reduction and integration (PHRI) is a therapeutic framework and psychoeducation for addressing various kinds of psychedelic use. It brings together harm reduction practices around substance use more generally, and an emphasis on the importance of “integration” work around psychedelic use more specifically.
It does not involve the use of any psychedelic medicines; rather, it represents the support that a therapist or coach might provide to an individual who has had or intends to have psychedelic experiences on their own, outside of therapy. For example, an individual who is exploring the use of psilocybin mushrooms may seek the support of an integration specialist to help them plan for experiences they undertake on their own, to minimize risks and increase the likelihood of positive outcomes.
PHRI therapists do not refer clients to underground therapists, and are in no way involved with the sourcing of psychedelic substances, nor do they conduct therapy while individuals are under the influence of psychedelics.
Except for ketamine, which is legal in a medical setting, most psychedelic substances are regulated and can only be legally accessed through clinical trials or through special government approvals. However, the social and political climate around psychedelic medicines is changing as research continues to demonstrate clear benefits to those suffering with mental illness.
It is important for medical and public health care practitioners to provide information about ways of reducing harm for persons who use substances. We are aware that psychedelic use is increasing, and that many people require support.
No. Psychedelic harm reduction and integration sessions are intended to help individuals benefit from past psychedelic experiences, or plan for safe future use. They are not intended as exploratory sessions. If you are interested in psychedelic-assisted therapy sessions, please see our ketamine-assisted therapy page.
