GENERAL INQUIRIES

We do not really have recommendations for therapists. As a foundation, we specifically focus on scientific research, and a lot more research needs to be done before those substances will be broadly used in therapy, if that will happen at all. 
 
We would like to caution you to consider anyone offering psychedelic-assisted therapy with scrutiny, since some people may offer therapy with psilocybin or ayahuasca without a background in mental health treatment, which may possibly affect patients negatively.

Check out our resources page for the latest papers on the potential use of psychedelics. 

We envision a world where safe, beneficial, and accessible applications of psychedelics are ethically and responsibly integrated within science, healthcare, and society.

Founded in 2007, the OPEN Foundation is the leading non-profit organisation dedicated to advancing psychedelic research and therapy in the Netherlands and Europe. We bring together and educate professionals, policymakers, and the public through conferences, training and membership programmes, along with conducting and promoting rigorous interdisciplinary research into psychedelics.

The OPEN Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit, public benefit organisation. Your contribution helps envision a world where safe, beneficial, and accessible applications of psychedelics are ethically and responsibly integrated within science, healthcare, and society.
