We are a nonprofit clinic providing affordable and accessible psychedelic-assisted therapies, as well as education and research.
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 services. With the roll-out of Oregon's Psilocybin Services Program (mid-2023), we plan to collaborate and consult with local psilocybin service sites to provide ancillary services (e.g., evaluations, treatment planning, integration, and other support services) for clients who may need a higher level of care (e.g., those with mental health or medical diagnoses who desire the support of a licensed healthcare provider to complement their engagement with psilocybin services). 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.
