Frequently Asked Questions
Ketamine assisted therapy combines the therapeutic benefits of Ketamine with psychotherapy sessions to create a comprehensive and innovative approach to mental health treatment. Unlike traditional therapy alone, this integrated approach targets treatment-resistant cases and offers breakthrough relief for conditions like depression and anxiety.
The effects of ketamine, which most patients find to be pleasant, typically last for around 45 minutes. These effects can make you feel “far from” your body, and facilitate shifts in perception that can often feel expansive in nature. Your motor and verbal abilities will be reduced a bit, so you’ll be lying down in a comfortable position during the experience. Once these effects subsided, your therapist spends the remainder of your appointment giving you space to process and discuss your experience. While it may feel hard to articulate what happened during the experience, people feel like the insights gained are still clear and helpful. Studies have shown that the benefits to mood and neurological growth can last up to two weeks after the Ketamine experience, and longer with repeated sessions.
