The program was developed in conjunction with Interlaceda company specializing in growing the education, e-learning, non-profit and community impact verticals through the development of digital learning experiences.

In five modulesthe program covers a range of topics including psychedelic history, science, clinical research, therapeutic uses and harm reduction. Each module contains a series of short and easy to follow lessons complemented by MAPS’ new online community platform, where fellow learners and psychedelic advocates can connect.

The association ensures that experienced psychedelic users will also find this guide a useful resource with the latest news on psychedelic politicsas well as harm reduction strategies to increase the likelihood of an “ideal” treatment experience.

“Over the next few years, millions of people could be eligible for prescription psychedelic-assisted therapy. Having access to a science-based educational program, backed by nearly four decades of MAPS as the world leader in psychedelics, will give people share language and knowledge to better care for loved ones who may be considering these treatments“, explained Noble.

MAPS is a longtime advocate for correcting misinformation spread for decades by the war on drugs Strategies. This course is a response to a growing public demand for information about psychedelics.
