Frequently Asked Questions

What is OMC’s approach to care?

Our psychedelic-assisted therapy approach includes a thorough screening and assessment process to identify any psychological or physiological conditions that may impact treatment. Trauma-informed care is provided to ensure that patients are properly assessed and supported in managing any traumatic experiences that may arise during therapy. Preparation is a key element of our approach, and includes establishing a trusting relationship with patients, providing education and informed consent, and ensuring safety measures are in place. During the medication session, patients are supported by their therapist in a non-directive manner, allowing them to explore their experience without interference. Our approach also emphasizes the importance of set and setting, and ensuring patients are in a calm and reflective state of mind in a safe and comfortable environment. Ultimately, our goal is to support patients in their journey towards meaning, spirituality, and healing.
