What is Ketamine-Assisted Therapy?

Ketamine is a drug that has been used for decades as an anesthetic and pain reliever. In recent years, therapist have been found Ketamine to be effectively treating a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, and OCD. Our therapists help you integrate your experiences during and after ketamine therapy to make the most of the treatment.

How Does Ketamine-Assisted Therapy Work?

Ketamine therapy is thought to work by increasing the levels of glutamate and BDNF in the brain. Glutamate is a neurotransmitter involved in learning and memory, while BDNF is a protein that promotes the growth of new neurons.

During KAT, the patient is given ketamine in a controlled setting, usually with a therapist present. The patient may experience various effects, including dissociation, hallucinations, and altered states of consciousness. These effects can be helpful for some people in processing trauma and other challenging emotions.

Benefits of Ketamine Therapy for Mental Health

  • Rapid relief of symptoms: KAT can provide immediate relief for some people. In studies, people who received KAT reported significant improvement in their symptoms within a few days or weeks.
  • Long-lasting effects: KAT can last for weeks or even months. This means that people receiving KAT may not need to continue with Therapy as often as other treatments.
  • Few side effects: KAT has few side effects versus to other treatments for mental health conditions. The most common side effects are dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. These side effects are usually mild and go away on their own.
  • Easy to administer: KAT can be administered in a doctor’s office or clinic. This makes it a convenient treatment option for many people.
