Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy Q&A

What is Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy?

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is a holistic method of treatment where Natalie uses ketamine as a complement to psychotherapy. KAP can help you experience frequent breakthroughs and sustained improvement in your mental health concerns and symptoms. 

Ketamine is a legal, safe medication that has effectively treated a variety of mental health conditions. It has rapidly acting antidepressant and mood-enhancing properties. 

Natalie conducts the psychotherapy portion while Journey Clinical’s medical team supports you on all medical aspects. Journey Clinical is a platform for licensed psychotherapists to incorporate science-based psychedelic therapies in their practice safely and effectively. 

The Journey Clinical team determines your eligibility, develops a custom treatment plan, prescribes the ketamine, and monitors your outcomes. 

What can Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy treat? 

You may benefit from KAP if you’ve been diagnosed with a mental health condition like anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), or a mood disorder like depression. 

KAP can also treat symptoms, such as:

  • Sadness 
  • Guilt 
  • Mood swings 
  • Fatigue
  • Lack of motivation 
  • Concentration issues
  • Overwhelming or persistent worry 
  • Sleep issues
  • Obsessive behaviors or thoughts

You may also benefit from KAP if you’ve experienced a traumatic life event or illness.

How does Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy work? 

Before beginning treatment, you’ll have an initial consultation with a Journey Clinical team member who confirms your eligibility and prescribes the ketamine. You then undergo a preparation session to align on the process and set intentions for your KAP appointment. 

During your KAP dosing session, you self-administer your ketamine lozenge at the office or remotely. 

The effects of ketamine are painless and pleasant and last for approximately 45 minutes. You can expect to feel “far from” your body and experience shifts in perception. Ketamine reduces your motor and verbal skills, so you lie down during your session. 

Once the ketamine effects subside, you spend the remainder of your session with Natalie processing your experience and reviewing any memories, thoughts, or insights that arise. 

You’ll have follow-up consultations with a Journey Clinical prescriber and receive prescription refills if you’re eligible. 

Although the KAP medical intake and follow ups aren’t covered by insurance, they’re eligible for out-of-network reimbursement. You can discuss psychotherapy hourly rates with Natalie directly. 

Journey Clinical can provide information on the cost for your initial and follow-up consultations and medication.
