Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy

What is Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy?

Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, also known as ketamine therapy, is a cutting-edge treatment for various mental health conditions. This form of therapy involves using ketamine, an FDA-approved medication, in combination with traditional talk therapy.

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy

How Does it Work?

Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy combines ketamine with talk therapy with the goal of increasing Ketamine’s antidepressant effects. Ketamine can create a heightened emotional openness and introspection, allowing for deeper exploration and understanding of oneself. The therapy sessions also provide an opportunity for individuals to develop coping mechanisms and strategies for managing symptoms in the future.

Many patients report that topics that are usually difficult to discuss, are much more accessible under the softening effects of ketamine. Many patients also report access to more self compassion which can be a powerful healing force. Ketamine assisted therapy is divided into three stages: preparation, the ketamine session (voyage), and integration.

How is it Administered?

Ketamine therapy can be administered intravenously (IV), intramuscularly (IM) or Oral. IV administration is typically done in a clinical setting, whereas IM administration can be done in a clinical or home setting. Oral ketamine is held in one’s mouth for 15 minutes where it is absorbed transbuccally.
