    Support Center

    Assistance with challenging experiences

    ICEERS Support Center has extensive experience supporting people going through difficult processes with psychoactive plants.

     

    • The sessions (up to five) are free of charge and are conducted by trained professionals with ample expertise in the field.
    • This support service is a complement to —but not a replacement for— medical, psychological or psychiatric attention.
    • We do not offer ayahuasca or iboga sessions, nor can we recommend centers or people who do.

    If you have questions about interactions between psychoactive plants and pharmaceutical drugs or medical treatments please visit our Drug Interaction Information service.

    This is a free service operating on limited resources. We attend inquiries according to availability, while giving priority to the most grave cases. Thank you for your understanding.

    Due to the large number of requests being handled at this time, the waiting time may be significantly longer than normal.

    About the Support Center

     

    ICEERS Support Center began its work in 2013 and since then has attended more than one thousand cases, accompanying people who have doubts or difficulties integrating processes related to psychoactive plants. 

    In order to minimize the risks and maximize the benefits of these processes a team of experts with extensive experience in integration offers their skills.

    We believe that integrating the work with psychoactive plants in our societies necessarily includes a response to the emergencies and accidents that might emerge. A response that should be accessible, culturally sensitive, and community rooted.

     

    • Accessible: Our attention is free of charge up to a total of 5 sessions.
    • Sensitive to ethnobotanical culture: We do not stigmatize users for their use of these plants. We do not psychopathologize by default, we believe instead that these are complex experiences that may be of another order.
    • Community rooted: We understand that the answers to the challenges derived from the use of ethnobotanicals often can be found in the community itself. We consult and collect the best community practices to integrate them into our practice.  

     

    An effective integration process means the difference between clarity and confusion, safety and risk, balance and imbalance.

    In 2022 the Center will open a training program aimed at those who want to accompany processes of preparation and integration of experiences with psychoactive plants.
