It means emotional support by people who understand what you’re going through because they’ve been there themselves.
Peer support does not include medical care, medical assessments, psychotherapy, or professional care of any kind. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911. If you need medical care or treatment, please call a doctor or other professional. If you need mental health care, please contact a mental health professional.
No. Sometimes it’s just nice to connect with another human being, even if your trip is going just beautifully.
Nope! It’s all up to you. You can give us your real name, a made-up name, or no name at all.
We’re people who get it. We’ve been there ourselves.
But, we’re here for emotional support only. We’re not doctors or therapists, and we don’t provide medical advice or medical assessment. If you think that you or the people you’re with may be having a medical emergency, you should call 911.
People working on the Psychedelic Peer Support Line are volunteers who are providing non-professional, peer-to-peer emotional support only. We want to be explicit about what the relationship is not. The relationship between support line volunteers and callers is not a doctor-patient relationship, a therapist-client relationship, a therapist-patient relationship, an attorney-client relationship, or any other type of professional relationship. This is true even if, for example, a volunteer happens to be a lawyer or a doctor or a therapist in their life outside of the context of the support line. We train our volunteers never to disclose their profession to any person with whom they communicate on the support line. No matter what the volunteer does outside of the support line, when volunteers are on the support line, they provide non-professional emotional support only.
No. We provide peer support only. If you are seeking medical care, medical screenings, or medical assessments, please contact a doctor or other medical professional.
If you believe you or someone you are with may be experiencing a medical emergency or you believe you or someone you are with are in danger, you should immediately call 911.
Fireside Project is not a suicide hotline. Callers who are intending to die by suicide, or who have a plan or the means to die by suicide are beyond the scope of the support line. Such calls are promptly transitioned to other resources, including emergency services or the National Suicide Hotline, depending on the specific circumstances. If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
If you are experiencing a clinical or long-term health issue, you should consult a medical or mental health professional. The support line is not a substitute for professional health care, mental-health treatment, psychiatric care, or therapy of any kind. We provide no professional services of any kind, including but not limited to medical care, medical assessments, medical treatment, and psychotherapy.
No. We provide peer support only. We do not provide medical care, psychotherapy, psychiatric care, or any other professional service.

No. We do not recommend or endorse any particular product, person, or service. We may refer you to sources of information. But it’s up to you to decide whether to rely on that information. We haven’t independently vetted or verified that information.
We currently only offer service to people in the United States. But we hope to expand internationally soon, starting with Canada.
We hope so! It all depends on demand and fundraising. To make a tax-deductible donation, please click here.
Yes, please! It can take time to process a psychedelic experience. You can call us back as many times as you’d like. We hope to support you during your journey of integration, whether that takes weeks, months, or even years. In the coming months, we hope to offer everyone weekly follow-up calls.
No. To protect everyone’s privacy and safety, volunteers are instructed not to communicate with callers outside the context of the support line.
