Oregon Approaches 2023. What's happening Now? EPIC Healing Eugene's Progress Update regarding Ketamine Services and with Offering Psilocybin in 2023.
What's New With EPIC 12/5/2022
What's New with EPIC?
1. Our business, Eugene Neurofeedback, has expanded our services. We continue to work through our wait list, and have been able to transition several of our clients from regular neurofeedback services to a less frequent maintenance neurofeedback tune-up schedule, making room for more people to start services.
Cathy continues to offer specialized psychedelic preparation & integrative services coupled with neurofeedback. (New discount Scholarship Program Added- See Below).
2. Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is still coming. We're working on it. Current timeline is delayed from our anticipated January 2023 launch, due to efforts to grow our Ketamine Provider Network, staff training, and other logistics including a possible move to a larger space. We will hold off on our timeline predictions for now, until we have confirmed start dates from our interested ketamine prescribers. Though, best guess right now is Winter/Spring 2023. Hopefully sooner than later. Thank you all for your continued inquiries. We are happily accepting more inquiries from medical professionals to join EPIC's Ketamine Prescriber Network.
3. Psilocybin Services. Likely this will also happen in Spring 2023 (March-May), due to numerous logistical aspects being sorted out including a larger space for a Service Center (we need a larger group space), licensing process with the State of Oregon, staff training, and coordinating with others for our large services roll-out.
4. Healing Group Offerings are delayed for now, until we roll out our ketamine services. We plan to offer Ketamine (in addition to Cacao) during some of our healing group mini-retreats. We anticipate offering a variety of individual, small, and larger group experiences, including for medical professionals experiencing compassion fatigue, depression, anxiety, and burnout.
Behind the Scenes:
Our Healing Team is having another EPIC Visioning Get-Together on December 10th, so more updates will be coming after this. We are excited to roll out lots of great offerings in 2023, including immersive experiences with ketamine.
Cathy is actively exploring Cooperative Models with others (including Subtle Winds) for providing local psilocybin services in 2023 and beyond, in hopes of creating a sustainable business model for psilocybin service center(s) for years to come.
Some of our staff continue their training in Psychedelic and Ketamine Assisted Therapy.
EPIC continues to explore local and national funding resources and partial scholarships for low-income individuals for future ketamine and psilocybin services.
Both Eugene Neurofeedback and EPIC Healing Eugene have just added a new Scholarship discount rate for those interested in working specifically with Cathy for neurofeedback services with psychedelic preparation and integrative counseling, and/or with trauma counseling support. This special scholarship program is for clients who do not have insurance or are covered under an insurance plan that Cathy is not paneled for. Scholarship funds will pay a sliding scale scholarship rate up to $60 towards Cathy's $185 counseling session rate, bringing the cost down to $125 a session. Eugene Neurofeedback will continue to provide a discounted rate of 90/session for neurofeedback, with services being provided by one of our male or female neurofeedback clinicians. Cathy will continue to accept several insurance plans, including local Medicaid and certain Medicare plans.
We're looking for additional space to offer a variety of individual and group offerings. Cathy also plans to keep her beautiful offices for neurofeedback in the Trillium Professional Building, and for some of our individualized ketamine work.
Cathy continues to add more You-Tube Videos documenting her progress and other historical psychedelic events related to the Oregon 2023 Psilocybin Services roll out.
You can visit Cathy's You-Tube Video page for her updates on Oregon Psilocybin Services, personal updates and educational tidbits about ketamine and other services, how neurofeedback can be helpful in the preparation and integration process, and more.
Please contact Cathy if you are interested in supporting EPIC Healing Eugene's healing endeavors.
