This video drama is presented by MAPS – the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies. We provide four basic principles to help someone having a difficult psychedelic experiences:
1. Create a safe space
2. Sit, don’t guide
3. Talk through, don’t talk down
4. Difficult is not necessarily bad
MAPS mission is to develop MDMA, LSD, Psilocybin, and Marijuana into legal prescription medicines for therapeutic applications. We are actively developing and funding clinical trials with human subjects in accordance to the guidelines set by the United States Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency. During this process we are training therapists to administer psychedelic drugs in therapeutic settings. We will open psychedelic therapy clinics around the world when these substances are approved as prescription medicines. We are also engaged in efforts to educate people about the benefits and risks of these substances and other psychedelics.
