Ketamine Assisted Therapy (KAT) is an innovative treatment modality offering new hope for individuals battling persistent mental health issues. Unlike traditional therapies, KAT provides rapid relief from symptoms of conditions like depression, anxiety, and PTSD, where other treatments may have previously failed.


What is Ketamine Assisted Therapy?

Ketamine Assisted Therapy combines the administration of ketamine with supportive psychotherapy to facilitate a comprehensive healing process. By guiding patients using therapeutic techniques before, during, and after ketamine administration, our clinicians at Pothos Health help patients navigate the experience with mindfulness and introspection.


How Does KAT Work?

The therapy's success lies in ketamine's ability to promote the growth of neural connections, potentially reversing the damage caused by chronic stress and mood disorders. This neuroplastic effect, combined with the supportive structure of Individual Therapy, creates an environment conducive to profound personal change.


What to Expect from a KAT Session?

During a KAT session with Kayla Meyer, LCSW, patients are supported in a controlled environment, typically taking place at one of our Pothos Health locations. A therapeutic encounter begins with ketamine infusion or oral administration, followed by integrative therapy to make sense of any thoughts, feelings, or insights arising during the session.


The Benefits of Ketamine Assisted Therapy

Beyond the rapid symptom relief, many patients report a lasting sense of clarity and emotional liberation post-therapy. Some find that KAT helps with conditions that are traditionally resistant to treatment, utilizing our innovative approach as a catalyst for transformation. Our research at Pothos Health offers deeper insights into the potential long-term benefits of KAT.


Is Ketamine Assisted Therapy Right for You?

KAT isn't for everyone, and it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional to assess if it's the right path for you. If you're interested in learning more or considering this therapy, schedule a consultation with us at Pothos Health. We'll work with you to review your history, explore options, and determine if KAT aligns with your therapeutic goals.


In closing, Ketamine Assisted Therapy represents a remarkable convergence of traditional therapeutic modalities and modern medical interventions. It may not be a universal remedy, but for many, it offers a valuable option in the quest for mental health and a fulfilled life. To explore the possibilities of KAT for yourself, please reach out to our compassionate team – we are here to facilitate your journey toward healing and growth.
