The Psychedelic Society Of First Responders and Emergency Workers

The Psychedelic Society of First Responders and Emergency Workers is active and thriving on FaceBook!  Like and follow our page for first responders and emergency workers (i.e. paramedic, firefighter, police, military, nurse, doctor, crisis worker, counsellor, etc.) that use, or support the use of cannabis and psychedelics; for healing, or enhancing quality of life. This page is both for evidence-based education, harm reduction, and community support networks. Clinical research has shown that cannabis and psychedelics can be powerful tools for healing, when used correctly.

A growing number of first responders and emergency workers are using cannabis and psychedelics to explore who they are, prevent stress-related illness, or to heal from previous acute or accumulated trauma.  Join our psychedelic community if you work in a related field (or support those that do); and wish to connect, exchange information, and share experiences with others like you! Click the link in the title or e-mail psychedelic.frew@gmail.com  for more information.

Click here to watch my lesson to First Responders on effectively managing patients who are experiencing acute psychosis or an emotional crisis.  I presented this as Continuing Medical Education for Paramedics in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  It outlines two intense calls that I attended where we were able to use psychological harm reduction and crisis intervention techniques to help patients experiencing two different forms of altered states.  These techniques prevented police from having to use lethal force, allowing us to get the best outcomes possible for the patients involved.  Feel free to use this information or the techniques I teach in your daily life to help others!

Sébastien Clermont joins me to talk about his new short documentary on the rise of psychedelic medicines and the war against drugs; called Forbidden Fruits.  We discuss how we are overcoming the war against psychedelics and gaining the right to heal with these alternative medicines.  Why have psychedelics been demonized for so long?  What can they do for psychotherapy and spirituality?  
*
Sébastien shares what he has learned researching the human history of psychedelic use, various cultural perspectives, as well as his own experiences with Ayahuasca and DMT. We also discuss how we must respect these powerful substances and avoid the harm that may come from going into them without proper education.
*
Our conversation goes into how healthcare workers and first responders are using psychedelics to relieve trauma and compassion fatigue; including the police officers who seek Ayahuasca underground. Many psychedelic communities are sprouting up networking and connecting various psychedelic healers with enthusiasts and others.  Look for a psychedelic community in your area to learn more about psychedelic initiatives!

This podcast is uncensored and covers many topics considered “taboo” or difficult for some individuals. We do not condone any illegal activities, as this is a platform for harm reduction and open-dialogue.  Although the ideas are mostly evidence-based and honest, the lines of reality and comedy may be blurred at times...this is your trigger warning!
