Ketamine FAQs

KETAMINE ASSISTED PSYCHOTHERAPY (KAP)

Ketamine is a dissociative medicine. It is an unblocking medicine when used in mental health. Ketamine helps removes the walls our mind places around trauma or mental illness. When these are removed a licensed and trained mental health professional can use talk therapy to help patients. Ketamine has been found to help treats depression, even in individuals who have not responded to other interventions. It has a unique effect, in that it can work very rapidly, with individuals frequently seeing improvement in their depression within hours. The ongoing beneficial effects of ketamine that can be realized include general mood improvement, lessening of anhedonia (inability to feel pleasure). Ketamine offers improvements to levels of anxiety and behavioral pattern of sleep, appetite and energy. Ketamine has also demonstrated benefit in anxiety conditions, including PTSD, and may yield gains to patterns of obsessive thinking or rumination. Coupling these biological effects with Treatment and behavioral change is designed to maximize benefit and sustained gains.
