Psilocybin therapy cost may be out of reach for practitioners and patients

A Eugene, Oregon-based therapist is documenting the cost of psilocybin therapy from a practitioner’s point of view, and it’s higher than many people expected.

After having positive personal experiences with psychedelics, clinical social worker Cathy Rosewell Jonas was optimistic about training to become a psilocybin therapy facilitator. But the regulatory system the Oregon Health Authority has put in place is proving harder than expected to navigate.

In addition to the extensive bureaucratic hoops, cost is a major concern. All in, Jonas anticipates the cost of opening a psilocybin service center to be almost $30,000. Based on this, she says she’ll have to charge upwards of $3,000 per session just to break even – a cost that will put psilocybin therapy very far out of reach for most people.
