Ketamine is a medication that has been used for many years as an anesthetic for surgical procedures. More recently, it has been found to be effective in treating depression, anxiety, symptoms associated with trauma, and in recovery from addictions. This off label use of Ketamine is particularly effective in cases where other treatments have not been (resistant forms of anxiety and depression). In ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP), the medication is self-administered in a therapeutic setting with an intention set for healing and growth. The patient is then monitored during the treatment, and an integration session of talk therapy is scheduled soon after, with the therapist to help process any emotions or experiences that may arise during the treatment. It is thought that ketamine works by changing the activity of certain neurotransmitters in the brain, which can help to improve mood and alleviate symptoms of depression.
If you tried traditional treatments and yet still struggle with depression, PTSD, or anxiety you may feel frustrated, discouraged, or even without hope. Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP) is a promising new treatment option that can help you achieve the lasting results you’ve been looking for.
KAP is a new therapeutic intervention that addresses some of the most resistant and challenging mental health issues. When combined with traditional psychotherapy, ketamine-assisted therapy can be a powerful tool for healing.
Ketamine has been shown to be an effective treatment for depression, PTSD, and other mental disorders, and its use in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy can help clients achieve lasting results. In ketamine-assisted therapy, patients are given a small dose of ketamine during their therapy sessions. This allows them to reach a deeper level of understanding and insight, which can lead to lasting changes.
