Breaking the cycle of addiction with Ketamine-assisted Psychotherapy

What is Ketamine-assisted Psychotherapy?

Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy is a cutting-edge treatment that has shown promising results in addressing various forms of addiction. It involves the controlled use of ketamine, a medication with both anesthetic and dissociative properties, in conjunction with psychotherapy sessions.

How Does it Work?

Ketamine works by modulating certain neurotransmitters in the brain, leading to a rapid and profound shift in perception. This altered state can enhance the effectiveness of psychotherapy, allowing individuals to explore and confront the root causes of their addiction in a more profound way.

The Benefits of Ketamine-assisted Psychotherapy

Rapid Relief: Ketamine-assisted Psychotherapy often provides rapid relief from symptoms, making it a valuable option for those seeking immediate help.
Neuroplasticity: Ketamine has been shown to promote neuroplasticity, allowing the brain to form new connections and pathways, potentially breaking the cycle of addictive behaviors

There is another treatment option to KAP.
Have you heard of TMS?

Harnessing the power of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate nerve cells in the brain. It is an FDA-approved treatment for depression, and emerging research suggests its efficacy in addressing addiction.

How TMS can help in addiction treatment

  • Brain stimulation: TMS targets specific areas of the brain associated with addiction, helping to regulate neural activity and reduce cravings.
  • Non-invasive: TMS is a non-invasive procedure with minimal side effects, making it a safe and well-tolerated option for many individuals.
