Company Profile

The Newly Institute believes that mental health treatment is in drastic need of a paradigm shift and our practice was founded to provide long-lasting change within this industry, our community, and with our clients. By fusing a bio-psycho-social-spiritual treatment model with psychedelic-assisted therapies, patients can overcome deeply embedded traumas that prevent them from living fully in their everyday lives. Our programs are based on evidence and data but our approach is personal because we know it is vital that people feel safe to be vulnerable during this process.

With locations opening in Calgary, AB and Fredericton, NB, as well as several more Canadian cities, The Newly Institute’s goal is to become Canada’s largest and premier operator of psychedelic assisted psychotherapy clinics.  The Newly Institute is committed to helping veterans suffering from PTSD, first responders suffering from depression, and First Nations suffering from addiction.
