Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is an intensive experience that can bring about change by lowering a patient’s defenses and providing the opportunity to explore their story as they work closely with the support of a psychotherapist.  This modality provides an avenue for deeper processing and gaining insight.  KAP utilizes a lower dose of ketamine through a sublingual lozenge and can result in rapid improvement in symptoms related to depression, anxiety, suicidality, PTSD, and other psychiatric conditions.

What you can expect in a KAP session:

  • Your first session is an intake that will consist of a medical evaluation by our medical team, a mood survey, dose setting, and goal setting. The course of therapy will continue with six subsequent individual KAP or group KAP sessions.
  • Each individual session will follow a similar routine. You will take your prescribed ketamine lozenge upon arrival and wait fifteen minutes. Once this waiting period has passed and the medication has taken effect, you will begin your forty-five minute therapy session.
  • Allow yourself an hour from the time you take your lozenge until the time your medication wears off. Driving an automobile or engaging in hazardous activities should not be undertaken until all effects have stopped. You will be required to have someone pick you up from each KAP session.
