Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy KAP NeuConnections November 29, 2022

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is an amazing opportunity available to us and a transformative tool used to enhance the outcomes of Ketamine Infusion Therapy. Combining Ketamine and Psychotherapy we are able to address various mental health conditions in a completely different way. KAP is extremely beneficial for those who have experienced trauma, grief, treatment resistant depression, post-traumatic stress (PTSD), addiction, and anxiety. KAP helps you dive deeper into your psyche and feel safe and protected when it comes to addressing the root causes of mental health issues. KAP can amplify the outcomes of all the therapy you have ever done and can lead to achieving lifelong results.

NeuConnections offers KAP as part of our comprehensive and holistic approach to wellness. In addition to Psychotherapy and Integration Coaching, we may recommend diet, lifestyle, and bodywork therapies to support opening to the experience, moving blocked energy, and integrating the experience to prolong the curative effectives of ketamine.

The KAP Process:

  • Educational call to get to know each other and determine how KAP may benefit you.
  • Medical and Mental Health Assessment and Intake
  • If approved, you will be scheduled for at least one talk therapy session to get to know your therapist. Here you can collaborate and create goals, set intentions, and focus on what you want for yourself.
  • During your KAP session, you will first meet with your therapist prior to your session to plan and discuss what you would like to work on.
  • Ketamine is then administered through and IV with and your dosing will be adjusted depending on what you are looking for in your session.
  • Your therapist will be present and engaged throughout the experience and will help you integrate your insights after the infusion is complete.

The Experience

During the peak of the ketamine experience, clients often find themselves in a realm of consciousness described as “cosmic,” “ego dissolved,” “boundless,” or “ineffable.” Due to the intensity of these experiences, it is helpful for clients to be well prepared and supported during their journeys.

KAP practitioners seek to do this by:

  1. Intentionally preparing the environment (setting) to foster a sense of safety, trust, and relaxation
  2. Preparing the your mindset (set) psychologically and emotionally to navigate the trip before inducing this altered state
  3. By being present with you throughout the experience so that you always have an experienced, knowledgeable person to assist you in navigating any challenging parts of the journey
  4. Assisting you in deriving meaning and creating change from your experience.

Upon reentering waking consciousness, there will often be much to process, and not all of it will immediately make sense. This initial stage of returning and remembering is a vital aspect of KAP, where insights can be brought back, processed, and digested into takeaways that can be implemented into your daily life. Having a therapist familiar with your journey can significantly enhance the long-term impact of your experience along with helping you find equilibrium and sense of feeling grounded after coming back from such a profound journey.

After Your KAP Session

You may wish to participate in stand-alone integration sessions in which we will help you process your experience during your ketamine session. We will discuss how you responded to the medicine, and determine an individualized course of treatment moving forward. Generally, multiple ketamine sessions are required to dive deep enough to address and heal the root causes of trauma to experience lasting effects. We recommend a commitment to a minimum of six ketamine infusion sessions, as the medicine has a cumulative effect and is most beneficial after multiple treatments. You and your care team will determine the exact number of KAP sessions based on need.

How Ketamine Works

Rapid Antidepressant Effect

Regulates glutamate, a vital neurotransmitter that helps us process thoughts and emotions.

Increases Neuroplasticity

Boosts neuroplasticity, which promotes the brain’s ability to adapt, heal, and learn new behaviors and patterns.

Stimulates Neural Pathways

Stimulates the growth of neural pathways leading to new perspectives and increased mental bandwidth. Disrupts looping thoughts and behavioral patterns that often contribute to depression, anxiety, and addiction.

Balances Chemicals in the Brain

Helps balance mood regulation and decision making chemicals in the brain. Allows for clearer thought and access to more emotions rather than rapid responses to triggers.

A New You

Ketamine Therapy is a Catalyst for Change and offers new hope for lasting life change for those suffering from anxiety, addiction, depression, trauma, OCD, and more.

Denver Ketamine

Our approach to treating ketamine as more than just medicine nets extremely positive and lasting results. We have found that when ketamine treatment is paired with therapy and integration coaching, our clients are using as many avenues as possible to address the issues plaguing them. Relief from mental health issues can begin to be experienced in as short as the first infusion session. However, longer treatment regimen found by researchers and approved by our medical director is required to achieve the longest-lasting results.

Our robust program and individually tailored treatment regimen will reactivate and reconnect neural pathways, balance the chemicals in your brain, and ideally give you the realization that you can change your life to exactly what you want for yourself. We want to help you achieve the life you have dreamed for yourself.

KAP Frequently Asked Questions

KAP FAQs

“It varies.” is the simple answer. Every person is different and while most people may see results after their first infusion, sustained, life-changing results generally take a regimen of six infusions. While the research points to this number, there is something magical that tends to happen with our clients as they learn to navigate this process. Occasional booster infusions may be needed, but we do our best to ensure a minimum amount of maintenance sessions. We offer a comprehensive program that combines integration coaching, a thorough understanding of the medicine, expert dosing skills, and may add talk therapy and other tools to assist you in finding lasting results.

Yes! Ketamine is considered a World Health Organization (WHO) essential medicine and is one of the most commonly used anesthetics in the world because of its safety profile. Ketamine is used world-wide because it easily administered without advanced equipment. Ketamine does not inhibit the respiratory or cardiac functions of a patient like most anesthetics. Our Medical Director, Anesthesiologist Dr. Trevor Peck, reviews all intakes and is available to speak with you directly if you have any concerns.
