What is Ketamine?(click to expand)

Ketamine was originally formulated for use in hospital settings and in veterinary care as an anesthetic. It numbs pain, and at very high doses, puts you to sleep. However, over time, it was discovered to have a powerful healing effect on the mind. Ketamine is essentially brain fertilizer: it turns decaying, unhealthy neurons that have atrophied due to long term mental illness into healthy, connected neurons. It can even cause new neurons and new neuron connections to grow!

In addition, the doses of ketamine used in KAT keep you conscious while numbing emotional pain enough for you to process feelings that are too overwhelming to process in regular therapy. This cocktail of effects creates the perfect environment for curing mental disorders that otherwise would resist regular talk therapy.

What is Ketamine Assisted Therapy?(click to expand)

Traditional talk therapy and antidepressants are failing a large portion of the American public. Ketamine assisted therapy is poised to change mental illness from a lifetime of prescriptions and painful therapy into a 1 month treatment that heals for good.

Ketamine assisted psychotherapy is a breakthrough treatment for use in depression, PTSD, substance abuse, and other mental health disorders. Patients receive therapy while under the influence of prescribed ketamine. A therapist or trip sitter guides them through the experience and supports the client in processing the ketamine session afterwards.

Treatment is short term: 8 sessions over just one month. This short treatment can cause full remission, and the majority of patients require no therapy or ongoing anti depressants afterwards. This type of treatment is poised to revolutionize mental health treatment by offering a short, long lasting road to remission for disorders that previously would require medication and therapy across the entire lifespan.

What does the Research Say?

Backed by Research

Albott et al, 2018 found remission rates for treatment resistant PTSD and depression after ketamine in veterans to be 80% and 93% respectively.

This is one study among hundreds with similar results!

Ketamine is Hope for All

Ketamine assisted therapy has also been found to be effective at treating intergenerational trauma, racial trauma, minority stress, and sexual abuse, making it a game changer for BIPOC folks, women, queer folk, and other marginalized groups. 

Ketamine has also been found to be especially beneficial for Autistic and Neurodivergent folk
