What is ketamine-assisted psychotherapy?

Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP) utilizes a range of talk therapy techniques in combination with the medication ketamine.

Ketamine is an anesthetic that offers pain-relieving benefits. The drug also has psychedelic properties that trigger a dissociative state. Using ketamine during psychotherapy sessions gives you a sense of safety while you navigate painful memories or intense emotions.

Peak Interactive Wellness provides medically supervised ketamine-assisted therapies to help you address underlying trauma like abuse, sexual assault, and grief. The experienced medical team creates a comfortable, safe environment where you can address deep emotions without enduring additional trauma.

What can I expect during a ketamine-assisted psychotherapy session?

Peak Interactive Wellness offers ketamine-assisted psychotherapy sessions in a relaxed, supportive space. During your initial visit, your provider completes an evaluation and guides you through setting an intention for your session.

They help you get comfortable in a quiet room and administer a precise dose of ketamine. The medication is available as an intramuscular injection, an oral solution, or a sublingual tablet that quickly dissolves under your tongue. Many people feel the dissociative effects of ketamine begin soon after.

Your provider continues to monitor your vital signs while they help you explore past or current traumas while you’re in a trance-like state. This relaxed state allows you to let your guard down, so you can deal with intense emotions without being attached to them.

After your session is complete, your provider discusses the issues that came up and recommends strategies you can use to manage emotional triggers and responses in a healthier way.

When should I consider ketamine-assisted psychotherapy?
