Beckley Psytech has partnered with Fluence, a New York start-up, which is focused on providing professional training in psychedelic therapy.
These organizations are seeking a specific therapy program tailored to the 5-MeO-DMT experience.
“The role of Fluence is to create the psychotherapy manual and to train the study clinicians on that manual to be able to deliver the treatment in a research setting,” said Dr. Ingmar Gorman, co-founder of Fluence, who has extensive experience training therapists to guide sessions with psilocybin and MDMA.
Gorman points out, however, that 5-Meo-DMT is very different. This is partly because of its administration but also because of its tendency to induce very powerful experiences.
The short duration, Gorman noted, can make experiences with 5-MeO-DMT especially challenging to integrate.
