Healing through Entheogenic Plant Medicines
Project Triangle supports legislation that ensures research on psychedelics for veterans. We work hard to provide a safe space for veterans and family members choosing to use these modalities to share their experiences and ask questions to other veteran peers within the private community. Like most non-traditional eastern modalities, many stigmas must be overcome to allow the freedom to choose a personalized healing journey. .
Due to the war on drugs, the benefits of entheogens (psychedelics) are not readily available. Research has shown powerful physical and mental health benefits to those utilizing psychedelics safely and with proper support. BVN has learning modules available for veterans to learn more about these natural alternatives at a basic level. Additionally, the organization has a private discussion area specifically for discussions related to this topic, so search for Project Triangle when you join the private online community to learn more.
Additionally, we are an ambassador organization supporting the Heroic Hearts Project, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit that connects veterans struggling with mental trauma to psychedelic therapy options, including ayahuasca, psilocybin and ketamine. HHP prioritizes support and professional counseling to veterans with military related trauma throughout the process. Due to high volume of applications, HHP currently works with veterans of all service type who can trace a major part of their trauma to their time in service – combat trauma or MST.
BVN is the only current nonprofit organization with a focus on providing it’s main support to all conventional forces veterans that make up 95% of the veteran population. With such a large portion of the veterans also seeking psychedelic support, BVN has struggled to provide proper resources in an impactful manner. An unfortunate reality is that in the veteran psychedelic space, conventional forces veterans receive an estimated $0.01 per veteran while special operations veterans receive around $3.14 per veteran. This estimate is based on the more than $3 million received by special operations nonprofits on GuideStar compared to the $150k received by conventional forces. This is because we currently receive around 3% of the funding that special operations forces receive, while serving 95% of veterans – and this is why we need your help!
