A Woman and Minority-Owned Psilocybin Treatment Center in Oregon: The First of Its Kind

Attention all hipsters and seekers of alternative healing methods! Get ready to experience the power of psilocybin at the Ashland Healing Center, the first of its kind in Oregon. Co-founded by a mother and daughter duo, Denise Taylor (RN) and Laurie Thompson (experienced meditator), this center is breaking barriers and providing relief for mental health conditions, PTSD, anxiety, depression, addiction, and end-of-life concerns.

According to a May 21 announcement, the center will offer clients the support of a licensed Psilocybin Facilitator during their journey towards personal transformation. With the guidance of an experienced facilitator, patrons can avoid any unpleasant effects of the mushroom and its derivatives.

But that’s not all, folks. The Ashland Healing Center also partners with healthcare professionals to ensure the best results for their clients and patients. This makes their services especially appealing to medical professionals, therapists, counselors, integrative health care practitioners, and anyone interested in improving mental health. And for those curious about their services, complimentary consultations are available.

But wait, there’s more! The Ashland Healing Center is also the only black-owned legal Psilocybin service center, with a strong commitment to improving mental health outcomes for the black community. Taylor’s expertise as an RN adds an extra layer of safety and knowledge to the team, making sure potential interactions and safety issues are carefully considered.

So how does a psilocybin session at the Ashland Healing Center go down? It’s a four-step process: Consultation, Intake and Preparation (set and setting), Administration, and Integration. And while the Oregon Psilocybin Advisory Board has only approved a limited number of recommendations, the co-founders of the center point to studies from prestigious institutions like John Hopkins, UC Davis, Yale, and NYU that have shown a wider range of potential for psilocybin-assisted therapy.

But let’s not forget, psilocybin is not a magic cure-all. As the website states, “It is self-directed. Although success is often received with just one treatment, your intent and desire to change are of paramount importance.” The experience heavily relies on an individual’s set and setting, and the center emphasizes the importance of working with a trusted facilitator in a safe environment.

And for those wondering how to get to Ashland, Oregon, fear not. The center is easily accessible via the Rogue Valley International Medford Airport (code MFR). So pack your bags and get ready for a transformative journey.

In November 2020, Oregon made history by becoming the first state to decriminalize hard drugs such as heroin or methamphetamine through Measure 110. And now, with the Ashland Healing Center, the state is taking another step towards alternative and holistic healing methods. So why not give psilocybin a try and see the incredible results for yourself?
