“SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES CAN OCCUR DURING ALTERED STATES.

Some people experience altered states with a spiritual component that can support the journey toward wellness and recovery. 

For some, this can be a life-changing event.

Too often, this spiritual component has been ignored, labeled, or confused with delusions or other symptoms.

Providers should respond respectfully and appropriately when clients ask for assistance with these experiences.”
