Sobriety/Abstinence of psychoactive substances & drugs
Psychoactive: A drug or other substance that affects how the brain works and causes changes in mood, awareness, thoughts, feelings, or behavior.
Examples of psychoactive substances include alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, marijuana, plant medicines & pain medicines.
Many illegal drugs, such as heroin, LSD, cocaine, and amphetamines are also psychoactive substances.
Natural substances, such as hallucinogenic mushrooms (psilocybin), cacti peyote/san pedro (mescaline). and the leaves, flowers, and buds of certain plants (ayahuasca, rape) are also psychoactive.
Some of these natural plant substances although aren't necessarily psychically addictive, they can be mentally & psychologically addictive.
They can have serious short or long term side effects, such as psychosis & permanent flashbacks.
We believe in other strategies to meet human needs of connection with nature, inspiration, healing, psychological support & addictions recovery rather than the use of substances that alter the consciousness, human behaviour & perception and carry potential health risks.
Sobriety, clarity, focus, & presence in this reality is required in our center.
