SECTION 56 APPLICATION FOR PALLIATIVE CARE
Begin Your Process Here
Welcome! This page will allow you to review your initial eligibility and fill out the form below for consideration.
Health Canada has oped the doors for Section 56 Exemption applications for psilocybin therapy for palliative care and end of life distress.
ATMA is a neutral collator of extant research on psilocybin. We do not promote the use of illegal drugs or encourage patients to seek Health Canada exemptions, only facilitate their self-directed efforts.
You ARE a good candidate for consideration if:
- you are dealing with a terminal diagnosis or in remission from a life-threatening diagnosis, or receiving palliative care;
- you are experiencing psychological distress because of your terminal diagnosis and have not responded to other treatment for emotional distress.
You are NOT a good candidate if:
- you have been diagnosed with Schizophrenia, Borderline Personality Disorder, or Bipolar Disorder;
- you have experienced traumatic brain injury, experiencing active uncontrolled medical conditions (such as unstable angina, unstable diabetes, uncontrolled asthma/COPD) or experiencing active uncontrolled addictions. We believe that with more study, these conditions may allow for the safe use of psilocybin treatment in the future, but at this time we are not able to process applications with these conditions.
Treatments for approved applications will be offered at ATMA Journey Centers. At present, we are located in Calgary, Alberta, and will soon have locations in Ontario and British Columbia.
Please fill out the following preliminary intake form if you feel you are a good candidate based on the above parameters and we will review this preliminary application and send the next steps for the application process.
