Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)

Pearl clinic treatment room #1 (1).JPG

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy, otherwise known as KAP, has become a popular treatment option for individuals diagnosed with severe and intractable depression.  The consensus is that ketamine facilitates psychotherapy by encouraging emotional learning through enhanced neuroplasticity, evocations of emotionally arousing experiences, reductions in defensiveness, and enhanced treatment adherence and engagement.  KAP’s capacity to facilitate rapid clinically significant reductions of anxiety and depression has been observed in many studies. 

At The Pearl Psychedelic Institute, our Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy is conducted in a safe, supportive, and supervised environment.  Patients who are accepted into the program will undergo a detailed intake assessment and a medical screening followed by a thorough preparation session*.  KAP sessions are 3 hours in duration and patients are supported throughout by a trained therapist and a medical practitioner. An immediate post-treatment integration session is provided to help patients maximize the potential benefits of their work with ketamine.
