The Maudsley Psychedelic Society Integration Group

The Maudsley Psychedelic Society Integration Group

You are invited to attend our monthly Psychedelic Integration Group to share your story and learn more about psychedelics in a safe, warm and supportive environment.

The Maudsley Psychedelic Society Integration Group provides a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for those who have used psychedelics or are considering using them. The group is for people who are struggling to make sense of a challenging psychedelic experience, wishing to share a meaningful one or simply interested in learning more about psychedelics and meeting like-minded people.

The group is facilitated by therapists and clinicians who work with psychedelics in clinical trial settings. We aim to provide a safe, confidential, friendly and comfortable space where people can be open about their experiences and share them with others who may help them achieve a more integrated understanding. We acknowledge that recreational use of psychedelics continues despite a long history of criminalisation. The group does not encourage or condone recreational use but we do provide harm minimisation interventions and psychoeducation to those who make their own choice to do this.

The Maudsley Psychedelic Society Integration Group is held on the first Friday of each month (except for our inaugural January group which will be held on Friday January 18th) at the Jamyang Buddhist Centre between 7pm-9pm. Please arrive 15 minutes early to get settled. Meetings begin at 7pm - you may not be allowed to join the group if you arrive late.

Tickets for each group are £15 per person, warm refreshments will be provided. Discounted £8 tickets are available for those on low-income.

*Tickets are non-refundable.

Disclaimer:

Maudsley Psychedelic Society Integration Group does not provide psychoactive or illicit substances. We do not conduct or promote psychedelic assisted-psychotherapy or integration services outside of approved clinical trials and we do not provide referrals to “underground” (illegal) psychedelic services.
