Clarion Clinics Reception

Australia’s first purpose-built, dedicated psychedelic-assisted therapy (PAT) clinic has officially opened its doors following a launch campaign led by Icon Agency.

Located in Abbotsford, Clarion Clinics will provide a highly specialised course of PAT for people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or treatment-resistant depression (TRD). The opening follows Authorised Prescriber approval for its Head of Psychiatry, Professor Suresh Sundram, from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).

Currently, the clinic is the only purpose-built and dedicated PAT facility in Australia, specifically positioned and designed to create the ideal setting for PAT.

A course of treatment involves approximately nine months of psychotherapy and psychiatry. This includes two full-day psychedelic-assisted treatments, individual therapy, group therapy, and tailored aftercare. All treatments are conducted on-site in a clinical setting, with two experienced and qualified therapists present throughout.

“This treatment is potentially life-changing for many people in Australia. Clarion is at the leading edge of mental healthcare, has the right protocols, and an experienced team ready to help people through these challenging conditions,” Peter Widdows, Incannex Director responsible for Clarion Clinics, said.
