Ketamine, when used alongside therapy, has been shown to be effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, treatment-resistant depression and substance use disorder.
Alongside mental health practitioners and other care givers, there will be a medical team consisting of a physician, a nurse practitioner and/or a nurse who will be available to care for you through out your session which usually lasts between 1 – 2 hours. Our priority is that you are and you feel safe leading up to, during and coming out of the session.
KAP combines medicine prescribed by a prescribing doctor with psychotherapy by a registered clinician. We believe that the medicine of the therapeutic relationship helps strengthen and integrate the effectiveness of the ketamine, as the relationship provides opportunity for corrective emotional experiences, and thus new neural pathways to be developed.
- The process begins with an information and intake session with your therapist.. We will discuss your goals, what brought you into treatment, your history, complete intake paperwork, and answer your questions about KAP.
- Next a medical assessment
- A psychological assessment will be conducted. Prior to the psych assessment you will be asked to fill out and return a series of assessments for research purposes.
- If you and the KAP team agree that this treatment approach is right for you, the actual ketamine session will be scheduled with a therapist.
