The Healing Advocacy Fund, a Portland-based nonprofit organization, has given $50,000 to the first group of “trip guides” in Oregon, as part of the state’s new psilocybin therapy program. Measure 109, which passed in 2020, allows people over the age of 21 to use psilocybin at a licensed facility under the supervision of a licensed facilitator or guide. The fund has said it will donate another $100,000 for training later in the year. The money will go to three schools that are training students in Oregon: InnerTrek, Synaptic, and Fluence.
