Nonprofit Launches Today to Integrate Psychedelic Therapy with End-of-Life Care
Sarasota, Florida May 18, 2023 (Issuewire.com) – Today, End of Life Psychedelic Care (EOLPC), launches a groundbreaking nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming the end-of-life experience through the responsible and therapeutic use of psychedelics.
EOLPC’s mission is to educate and provide patients with access to compassionate care and support during the end-of-life process. The organization believes that psychedelic-assisted care can play a pivotal role in easing anxiety, depression, as well as the emotional and spiritual challenges that often accompany a life-threatening or terminal illness.
In addition to educating consumers with a life-threatening illness, EOLPC seeks to provide a holistic approach by expanding the concept of an “end-of-life psychedelic care team.” The multi-disciplinary team would include psychedelic trained mental health therapists and facilitators, end-of-life doulas, hospice chaplains, and mind-body-spirit practitioners to support mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing at this time of life. To that end, EOLPC will offer a wide array of educational programs addressing psychedelic care and end-of-life issues.
“Everyone deserves compassionate care as they face a terminal illness, and that includes education and access to the transformative potential of psychedelic-assisted care,” said Christine Caldwell, Founder and Executive Director of EOLPC. “Our organization is dedicated to a psychosocial and spiritual approach, and I can’t think of a better type of person to support an individual and their family than someone who works as an end-of-life doula or a hospice chaplain or volunteer. These professionals, trained in supporting the emotional wellbeing of clients as they face a terminal illness, are beautifully suited to soothe clients’ concerns surrounding a psychedelic journey, hold space as they experience one, and then help them find peace and joy going forward.”
Stuart Sovatsky, PhD, EOLPC Advisory Board Member, a renowned psychologist and leading voice in the field of transpersonal psychology, remarked, “The launch of EOLPC marks a crucial step towards recognizing the profound healing potential of psychedelics in end-of-life care. By merging ancient wisdom with modern science, we aim to create a safe and sacred space for individuals to explore their inner landscapes, find meaning, and make peace with their mortality.”
EOLPC will offer a range of services, including educational classes in psychedelic and integrative wellness for end-of-life issues, an End-of-Life Doula training program, group preparation and integration sessions for consumers and their families, plus marketing programs for consumers to enable them to find professionals experienced in both psychedelic care and end-of-life issues.
The organization will also collaborate closely with regulatory bodies, research institutions, and medical professionals to advance the understanding of psychedelic-assisted care and advocate for responsible and legal access to these treatments for those in need. EOLPC is committed to adhering to the highest ethical standards and to fostering an environment of safety, integrity, and respect.
As EOLPC embarks on this transformative mission, the organization invites supporters, philanthropists, and healthcare professionals to join hands in creating a future where end-of-life care is marked by compassion, empowerment, and the profound potential for healing.
