Discussion of risks facing health care professionals who offer psychotherapy-based "integration services" to people who are illegally using psychedelic substances (underground use). Gives examples of the types of public safety complaints a health care licensing board may receive, and the types of questions a licensee might expect to be asked. Encourages licensees to review current statutes and administrative rules governing their license and to work with their licensing board prior to offering integration services.
