With an ongoing depression epidemic increasing suicide rates exponentially, it has become clear that revolutionary treatments are needed in psychiatry. Roots Behavioral Health is determined to address this mental health crisis by utilizing disruptive tools to deliver superior results.
Among these tools making waves in modern mental healthcare is ketamine: one of the most powerful and effective treatments in our field. We offer two approaches to ketamine therapy, both of which can support patients struggling with:
- Substance Use Disorders
Our approaches include:
Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy, or KAP, which is an intensive therapeutic process that combines the transformational experience of ketamine with the grounding presence of a trained therapist. This approach may be best for patients who do not have outside therapeutic support, and/or for those who wish to explore and process the ketamine experience with a psychotherapist who has specialized training and experience in this unique approach.
Ketamine Therapy is a treatment that involves the experiential and physiological power of ketamine, without the additional component of psychotherapy. This approach may be appropriate for patients with outside therapeutic support and those whose budget may not allow for the additional cost of psychotherapy.
Ketamine Integration Group is a weekly, therapist-led group that includes an opportunity to process ketamine experiences in a supportive environment, as well as learn mindfulness skills specific to making the most of the therapeutic ketamine experience. We strongly encourage all patients undergoing ketamine therapy to participate in this helpful and insight-nourishing group.
These approaches can provoke change at the most fundamental level. To experience ketamine in a safe, controlled setting greatly increases the likelihood of achieving a breakthrough, providing an opportunity to reduce or eliminate negative thoughts and, consequently, negative thinking patterns. A time outside of one’s ordinary mind can empower people to discover different perspectives and insights that can lead to improved mood, motivation, and overall functioning. You’re not just changing mood with ketamine, but the very lens of your perception.
