    Ketamine TherapyUnderstanding Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) and How it Can Help You.

    Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP) is an innovative treatment that combines low doses of ketamine, a medication known for its quick-acting antidepressant effects, with supportive psychotherapy. Originally used as an anesthetic, ketamine has gained acclaim for its ability to swiftly alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health conditions, especially when traditional methods haven’t been effective.

    The Journey Through Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy

    Here’s what you can expect during the ketamine-assisted psychotherapy process:

    Initial Assessment: Our first step is a conversation with a psychiatrist to assess if this therapy aligns with your needs.

    Preparation Sessions: You’ll engage in preparatory talks with one of our therapist, setting the stage for your ketamine experience.

    The Ketamine Session: Self-administered in a comfortable, controlled environment, the ketamine is taken with continuous monitoring.  These sessions are generally just under 3 hours in length.

    Integration Discussions: Post-experience, you’ll process and discuss your journey with a therapist, integrating insights and images into your therapeutic progress.  After this, the ketamine and integration sessions will happen repeatedly until your symptoms lift.
