Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy KAP

Consciousness Awakening Center


Have you tried conventional psychiatry and psychotherapy only to be disappointed? Disappointed with results that last only a limited time with side effects or worse, no results at all?  Do you feel you have run out of options? If you answered yes, let me tell you about KAP.


Just what is KAP, where did it come from?


Pathway To Mental Health is pleased to announce KAP as an additional option for treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress syndrome, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

KAP is Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy. Ketamine was originally produced in 1962 as an anesthetic, approved by the FDA, and used on and off the battlefield. As such, it is a very effective pain reliever.


“Off-label” use of Ketamine, per the FDA, is administered to treat many psychiatric conditions that are resistant to conventional psychotherapy as well as psychopharmacology.


At very low dosages Ketamine is an anxiolytic, meaning it decreases anxiety. Depending on you as an individual, your background, lifestyle, history, etc. Ketamine provides sometimes immediate relief from suicidal ideation, major depression, as well as anxiety. For others results of symptom relief are not immediate but continue to be noticeable from pre-ketamine states.

Will KAP work for me?

Everyone’s different and everyone reacts differently based on your unique biological makeup, therefore the results vary when using Ketamine. Some people respond immediately, others need maintenance ketamine to continue with their unique healing process. Still others, approximately 20 – 30% will not respond at all to the effects of Ketamine.

How is KAP administered?


There are Ketamine clinics providing Ketamine through intravenous or (IV).  Here at Pathway To Mental Health, Ketamine is provided two ways, through intermuscular injection in your deltoid (upper arm like a flu injection) and/or by mouth with either lozenges or liquid concentrations.

May I continue with my current therapist or psychiatrist?


Absolutely, in fact, if you do not have a current therapist or psychiatrist, (that includes psychiatric nurse practitioners, like me) you will need one, or Ketamine therapy will not be provided. Ketamine is not a (one-stop-shop). It will not be treated as such. Good brain/mental health starts with nutrition, followed by mental mastery of your thoughts. Are you up for the challenge? In your current therapy, I am sure you are being taught how to analyze your emotions, work to master your consciousness which in turn rules your subconscious or unconscious. If you are diligently working on your inner thoughts which create your outer world without results, Ketamine may be for you.
