Group Ketamine-Assisted Therapy

What Exactly is Ketamine?

Ketamine, a widely used and well-understood medication, is currently being prescribed off-label to for individual and group ketamine assisted psychotherapy to address various conditions such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), addiction, pain, and other common health issues.

Ketamine aids in boosting neuroplasticity, facilitating the repair of damaged synapses—or neural connections—in the brain. These connections often suffer from deterioration over time due to prolonged stress and depression. Consequently, ketamine induces a shift in the brain, making it more adaptable and receptive. This shift allows individuals to disrupt old, repetitive thought patterns, enhance cognitive flexibility, and become more receptive to new experiences and personal growth.

Group Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy

Group Ketamine Assisted Therapy merges ketamine, psychotherapy, and communal support within a secure environment. Embracing a group setting can enhance your journey towards healing, allowing for deeper exploration. When we collectively experience moments of transcendence, delve into the depths of sorrow, embrace joy and spontaneity, we discover that we can bring these experiences into our daily existence. 

Whether it’s within our families, among friends, or within our community, we find ourselves better equipped to enrich these relationships. In our current cultural landscape, genuine connection often requires intentional effort. Gathering in purpose-driven groups offers us the chance to cultivate vulnerability and connection in ways seldom available in our day-to-day lives.
