Regain control with KARE

Ketamine-Assisted Therapy for Alcohol Relapse Prevention

The journey to recovery from alcohol dependence is often fraught with challenges and setbacks. Recognizing this struggle, Be the Change in Mental Health (BTC) has introduced KAREKetamine for the Reduction of Alcohol Relapse—a transformative program that integrates the use of Ketamine as an adjunct to psychotherapy. This structured, 4-week outpatient protocol is not only clinically validated, but can offer a significant advancement over traditional methods of relapse prevention.

Within the case study published by Awakn Life Sciences, KARE distinguished itself by being exponentially more effective than conventional treatments.  It can, in some cases, be more cost-efficient compared to many inpatient programs. Addiction, akin to conditions such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD, stems from ingrained patterns of neural behavior. BTC‘s innovative use of Ketamine in conjunction with psychotherapy disrupts the neurological circuits associated with destructive behavior patterns. By diminishing these entrenched neural connections, the KARE program paves the way for clients to establish positive, lasting changes in their response to life’s stressors.

The treatment involves a delicate synergy between Ketamine administration and psychotherapeutic techniques, creating an environment conducive to emotional relearning. Patients are given the opportunity to adopt healthier responses to addictive impulses, cravings, and the fundamental issues driving their addiction. The KARE process is an odyssey towards sustained abstinence, empowering individuals to overcome the cyclical nature of addiction.

With a focus on circuit mechanisms rather than just receptor activity, the KARE program by BTC can enable individuals to break free from the shackles of addictive thoughts and behaviors. This approach can foster durable, positive transformations, ultimately reducing the likelihood of relapse. It is a beacon of hope for those seeking a life liberated from alcohol dependency.

At BTC, we are not just treating addiction; we are reshaping lives. Experience the KARE difference and take the first step towards a relapse-resistant future.


Disclaimer: Treatments provided by BTC do not constitute a detox program or substitute for residential comprehensive treatment for severe substance use disorders. For individuals struggling with severe alcohol dependency, it is imperative to understand that abruptly ceasing alcohol consumption can pose significant risks. Delirium Tremens (DTs), a severe withdrawal syndrome, typically manifests 48-72 hours after the last drink and necessitates intensive hospital care to prevent seizures and potential fatality. Quitting alcohol can be deadlier than quitting heroin, and withdrawal from alcohol without proper medical supervision can be life-threatening. At BTC in Mental Health, we specialize in providing treatments tailored for individuals who have successfully completed supervised detoxification programs. Our treatment constitutes the next phase of the extensive journey toward complete recovery from Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD).
