Oregon has just become the first state in the US to approve a psilocybin service center, where adults can receive psychedelic treatment. This is a major milestone in the movement to legalize psychedelics, as it marks the first time a state has officially recognized the therapeutic potential of these substances. The Oregon Health Authority approved the center, which will be run by the Oregon Psilocybin Society.

The center will provide a safe and supervised environment for adults to receive psilocybin-assisted therapy. Patients will be able to receive one-on-one counseling and group therapy sessions, as well as educational materials about the therapeutic potential of psychedelics.

The center will also provide training for therapists and other healthcare professionals who are interested in providing psilocybin-assisted therapy. This is an important step in ensuring that patients receive the highest quality of care. The approval of the psilocybin service center in Oregon is a major victory for the psychedelic movement. It is a sign that the state is recognizing the therapeutic potential of psychedelics and is willing to provide a safe and supervised environment for adults to receive treatment. This is an important step in the movement to legalize psychedelics and could pave the way for other states to follow suit.
