Supportive and Specialized Care

This year, millions of people will use psychedelics outside of supervised medical contexts, many of them for the first time.  Taking psychedelics can result in overwhelming and uncomfortable experiences, more likely with high doses, amongst first-time users, and without adequate preparation or setting. Psychedelic harm reduction includes a variety of methods to help prevent and transform difficult experiences while in a non-ordinary state of consciousness.

The Zendo Project

  • Reduces the number of unnecessary psychiatric arrests and hospitalizations.
  • Creates an environment where volunteers can work alongside one another to improve their harm reduction skills and receive training and feedback.
  • Demonstrates that safe, productive psychedelic experiences are possible without the need for law enforcement-based prohibitionist policies.

Mission

The mission of the Zendo Project is to provide a supportive environment and education to help transform difficult psychedelic and emotional experiences into opportunities for learning and growth.

Vision

We envision a world where communities are engaged in providing safety and support for people having psychedelic and emotional challenges; and harm reduction principles are used foremost to reduce the risks associated with substance use.
