Kosmicare UKSociety — Community organization
|About||Kosmicare UK is a service dedicated to helping people who are undergoing difficult drug-related experiences at festivals and music events.|
We set up a safe space where people in crisis can find tailored support by experienced therapists. This idea was born from a harm reduction program created by the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) and Diogo Ruivo (founder of Boom Festival, Portugal).
Presently Kosmicare UK is a constituted community group, run by a group of dedicated volunteers and funded through donations and gifts.
Although most drugs are banned by law, people still take them and and occasionally find themselves overwhelmed, especially at events. Such people need a safe space and support rather than medical intervention or security involvement. We provide this in a way that a negative experience may be turned into a positive healing experience or a process of self-awareness and self-discovery.
We do not encourage the use of illegal substances. We are non-judgemental, not pro or against personal choices, we are just here to care.
