What is Ketamine? What does it do?

Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic first synthesized and tested in the 1960s. Combat medics used it to sedate injured soldiers on the battlefields of the Vietnam War. It became a common anesthetic for medical emergencies and war zone surgeries.

Ketamine appears to have powerful influences on the brain’s neurotransmitters, reduces inflammation, and has positive impacts on mood. It appears to counterbalance cortisol levels and effectively lessen depressive symptoms linked to a build-up of long-term stress hormones.

What is the desired outcome?

The desired outcome of our ketamine assisted therapy program is for clients to begin to experience a decrease in depressive and trauma symptoms, to gain understanding into their experiences, to help shift their perspectives and to focus on moving forward to a post-traumatic growth mindset
