About the treatment

Ketamine

Ketamine is an extremely safe anesthetic agent used off-label to treat a variety of mental health issues.  Research supports that Ketamine may be beneficial for:  Treatment Resistant Depression, PTSD, Anxiety, Bipolar Depression, OCD, and Suicidality.

There are multiple routes to administer Ketamine, including intravenous, intramuscular, subcutaneous, oral, and intranasal.  At Voyage Healing, we are currently offering intramuscular, subcutaneous, and oral Ketamine in the form of lozenges.  We plan to offer intravenous Ketamine in the near future. We will go over the pros and cons of each treatment with you, and collaboratively tailor the treatment to best suit your diagnosis and preferences.

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)

KAP is a growing therapeutic modality that weaves therapy into the Ketamine treatment.  This is accomplished in three components:

Preparation

Therapists and patients collaborate to ensure the patient is in a prepared mindset for Ketamine. Also, patients often set intentions for healing during this stage.

The Voyage

Therapy during the Ketamine experience we term "Voyage" therapy. Anxieties and inhibitions may be softened with low dose Ketamine, allowing entry into deeper therapeutic work.

Integration

Integration refers to processing the Ketamine Voyage, with an eye towards deriving personal meaning and integrating new knowledge into everyday life.

To keep both our Voyage Healing team and our patients as safe as possible, COVID-19 vaccinations are required prior to entering our space.
