If you are looking for a therapist in your neighborhood, begin your search with your own doctor. In the United States, any licensed doctor can prescribe maggot therapy. Maggot therapy is simple enough that most first time users have no problem with the procedure. If your doctor has any questions or concerns, the BTER Foundation will gladly assist them. This list contains contact information for maggot therapists, teachers and advocates willing to assist you. It is also available, arranged by region. For other types of biotherapy, including veterinary biotherapy, please refer to our Biotherapy Referrals page. If you are a health care professional and would like to be added to this list, please contact us by e-mail, fax, or phone. Inclusion in this listing does not imply endorsement.
