Foundational Healing Pyramid Ibogaine

What is Foundational Healing?

Psychedelic therapy is not a miracle cure. Instead, psychedelic therapy can provide a foundation for ongoing psychological and neurological recovery.

Through its Foundational Healing Grants, VETS provides funding, coaching, and additional resources for veterans and their spouses seeking treatment with psychedelic-assisted therapies.

VETS supports treatment and research with these science-backed psychedelic therapy modalities:

  • Ibogaine
  • Ketamine
  • Psilocybin
  • MDMA
  • 5-MeO-DMT
  • Ayahuasca

VETS is committed to ensuring maximum potential for success for veterans seeking transformative, holistic health solutions. Expert-led preparation and integration are key to setting the intentions which lead to meaningful changes after treatment.

Each Foundational Healing Grant recipient receives:

  • Grant funding for psychedelic-assisted therapy
  • International travel support
  • Five individual preparation and integration coaching sessions
  • Group integration coaching for veterans and spouses
  • Weekly yoga classes
  • Ongoing access to community support network

All Foundational Healing Grant recipients participate in scientific research to contribute to existing knowledge of the safety and efficacy of psychedelic-assisted therapies.
