We are bringing cutting edge treatment from the bench to bedside through Canada’s largest network of purpose built psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy clinics.
CURRENT TREATMENT METHODS
Current treatment for most mental health concerns is often medications. More and more Canadians are prescribed antidepressants and less are accessing therapy. While many benefit, it leads to chronic and debilitating outcomes for many.
This all encompassing program includes national and international experts treating PTSD, depression, anxiety, addiction, and chronic pain.
Psychedelics alter the way we interpret internal psychogenic stimuli. Changes in neurotransmitter activity leads to down regulation of self awareness and inhibits recurrent negative thought patterns. New synapses are formed in your brain inducing an unprecedented state or neuroplasticity, that sets the stage for you to break old patterns and learn skills to improve your life.
Psychotherapy around the time of psychedelic treatment is a powerful tool that can help many re-frame the way their brain interprets internal stimuli, break harmful repetitive thought patterns, and provides a new lens through which patients can view their brain’s inner and often unconscious mechanics.
Our program has been curated by the expertise of our world-class medical professionals. We have carefully developed our curriculum based on the best available medical and complementary evidence to help you maximize benefits.
COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY FOR INSOMNIA
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for insomnia. (CBTi) is a first-line treatment for individuals struggling to fall asleep and/or maintain sleep. CBTi focuses on cognitive interventions, behavioural interventions, and education to restructure one’s sleep algorithm. It has been shown to be highly effective and is recommended as a first line approach for treating sleep difficulties in PTSD, anxiety and depression, and in some studies even more effective than medications.
DIALECTIAL BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) is a type of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) designed to help develop healthy coping mechanisms, improved regulation of emotions and improved communication and relationships. These skills are key to confront difficult situations and building longterm resiliency. DBT has been shown to help those living with severe mental health disorders including PTSD, depression, anxiety, addiction, and chronic pain. DBT has also been shown to resolve Acute Stress Disorder and prevent the onset of PTSD.
ACCEPTANCE COMMITMENT THERAPY
Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) is also a type of CBT, and along with DBT, is part of the third wave of CBT therapies. This wave looks more at comprehensive life goals rather than challenging thoughts and eliminating symptoms. ACT is a mindful approach to accepting the difficulties in life we all face in order to improve one’s future. One of the cores of ACT is living a values-based life. This means identifying, and allowing your values to guide behaviours and direction. ACT has also been shown to help those living with severe mental health disorders including PTSD, depression, anxiety, addiction, and chronic pain.
MINDFULNESS TRAINING AND RESILIENCY
Mindfulness is one of the core aspects of our curriculum and imbedded throughout all of our programming. On top of that we have developed a separate mindfulness course to learn more about the breath, living in the moment, and developing a mindfulness practice. Mindfulness Training and Resiliency Program (MTRP) based treatments are effective in reducing symptoms of PTSD, depression, and anxiety. The goal is to be able to respond to a situation rather than react with awareness. Overall mindfulness helps enhance long term resiliency and supports further growth and practice in self-care.
TRAUMA INFORMED YOGA
Movement is medicine and is a pivotal part of mental health recovery. Trauma informed yoga has been shown to improve sleep, concentration, negative thinking, and regulating emotions. The approach allows a safe and supportive space to enhance emotion regulation with use of the breath and body. The focus on the mind-body system is important to help calm the nervous system while moving towards recovery and building resiliency.
ACCELERATED RESOLUTION THERAPY
With Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), we say "Keep the knowledge and lose the pain". You will be reset and free from the past traumas which have haunted you. Anxiety, depression and nightmares become an experience of the past. ART is a cutting-edge evidence-based trauma treatment that is accelerated!
This is not talk therapy. Your brain and body become reset using the neuroscience of memory. ART is effective in resolving PTSD, co-morbidities of traumatic brain injuries, complex childhood trauma, psychological stress injuries, depression, anxiety, addiction, and chronic pain.
CHRONIC PAIN MANAGEMENT
Chronic Pain Self-Management is about taking control of your pain and helping increase self-efficacy. Research shows those who complete a self-management course increase healthy behaviours including strengthening and stretching exercises, progressive muscle relaxation, and visualization. More importantly, people living with pain report greater self-efficacy to manage their pain and mental health, important for building and maintaining resiliency.
RELAPSE PREVENTION ADDICTION TREATMENT
Substances of abuse (alcohol, cocaine, opioids) are commonly used by those with trauma and untreated mental illness as a way of self-treatment to avoid the difficulties of intrusive thoughts and unwanted memories. Avoiding the pain is a natural human condition, but for us to face our traumas we must learn to do so without avoidance. Relapse Prevention and Addiction Treatment (RPAT) helps individuals learn about addiction and how resolving mental illness like depression, anxiety, and trauma can help break the cycle of suffering, and avoidance that perpetuates the addictive behaviours.
FAMILY EDUCATION PROGRAMMING
If we think we feel alone, imagine what our loved ones are going through. Our world class team has developed a state-of-the-art educational program dedicated to our friends and families. Attendees learn about The Newly Institute, the curriculum, and about how trauma and mental health affects all aspects of our lives. We need everyone to recover from mental illness, as we are stronger together.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) is an evidence-based treatment that was developed in the late eighties for the purpose of treating trauma and other distressing experiences. This treatment follows strict protocols to process emotions. During the session you will be using your eyes to follow a light bar or the therapist's hand moving back and forth, replicating rapid eye movements (REM) that occur in the REM phase of sleep. The eye movement protocol is followed until eventually the emotional impact of the negative memories being processed have dissipated. This process can rapidly resolve suffering from underlying trauma and assist in treating the resulting mental illness, addiction, and exacerbations of chronic pain.
OUR TREATMENT OPTIONS
The Newly Institute offers intensive programs that work within hours and help you feel better now. While the effect of our treatment will be durable for many patients, those who suffer from relapses can revisit our clinics for booster treatments on an as needed basis.
