Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy For Anxiety & Depression

A nxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other mood disorders can be treated effectively with Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP). The KAP method combines psychotherapy with ketamine treatment – both of which are effective for many people. They may be extended or improved when combined.

The KAP may be particularly useful for patients suffering from depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders. At Zen Integrative Care, we offer KAP to benefit our patients.

Advantages

Ketamine treatments may be enhanced by psychotherapy, but it is not required. Talk therapy and psychotherapy are both reliable and common ways to improve mental health. These treatments are likely to enhance the results of ketamine treatment. During psychotherapy, the experiences of ketamine treatments can be processed so that they can be better understood.

A limited amount of research has been done in the field of psychedelic assisted
psychotherapy (KAP) and other forms of psychedelic assisted psychotherapy, yet the available results are encouraging.

Why It Works

Psychotherapy and ketamine treatments are probably compatible for several reasons:

  1. It is likely that therapy is beneficial at any time, including when receiving
    ketamine treatment. Talk therapy is generally highly effective in treating
    depression and anxiety.
  2. According to our best information, ketamine increases a patient’s
    neuroplasticity, enabling you to escape unhealthy ruminations and ruts, and
    opening your mind to new ideas. A therapy session around ketamine
    treatments might be particularly effective, in theory.
  3. Approximately 70% of patients who receive ketamine infusions experience
    clinically significant reductions in negative symptoms – even those who have
    severe symptoms and are resistant to treatment. Keeping the positive
    momentum going as much as possible when you are experiencing positive changes is the best time to implement positive lifestyle changes and talk therapies, like KAP.
  1. A therapeutic setting can benefit from investigating insights and themes
    uncovered during ketamine sessions.

Schedule

Patients typically schedule three therapy appointments around their initial series of ketamine treatments. Therapy appointments are typically scheduled around patient’s initial series of ketamine infusions.

During the consultation with the therapist and the practitioners at Zen Integrative Care, you can decide how to proceed following the initial series of therapy appointments and ketamine infusions.

How do I know if Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy is right for me?

There are many people who can benefit from KAP, a novel approach to treatment. It can offer a new approach to mental health issues if you are struggling with intense or chronic mental health issues. People looking for a unique therapy experience or who want to see rapid results will also find KAP very helpful.

In case you aren’t sure if KAP is for you, don’t worry! You can always start with traditional talk therapy first, and then use KAP later in the treatment process if necessary. We provide you with the most appropriate treatment options possible, based on your choice.

The KAP may be particularly useful for patients suffering from depression, anxiety, and
other mood disorders.
