IV Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy
sessions starting at $349 per session

After years of data collection, we estimate that greater than 80% of the people who have completed our treatment process, no longer report levels of distress within the clinically diagnosable range. 

The majority of our clients will achieve these results within 6-8 sessions. The main factors that play into how many sessions one might need are the current severity of symptoms, the specific condition being treated, and how long it has been resistant to other treatments but there are many other factors.

We believe it is important to give the process a chance and commit to the entire recommended treatment plan we establish together with you in intake, but we also understand that it is difficult to sign up for an involved process when one might have reservations about getting started in the first place.

Our lowest cost options for treatment starts at $349 but session prices vary depending on the experience level of the therapist you work with and if you are seen in an individual or group format. 

Group KAP is half-price the normal cost of a therapist’s session rate and is by no means a less effective option. Group KAP is Transcends favorite format to facilitate KAP. For conditions like problem drinking, depression, and PTSD the group format may have some benefits over individual KAP. 

For conditions like, OCD, anxiety, and CPTSD, it is often best to see clients individually. 

When you meet your therapist they will advise you which format has the best chance of success for you and will be the most cost-effective.

Frequently Asked Questions.

We are here to answer your questions regarding ketamine assisted therapy.

Ketamine Infusion Therapy/Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy is ideal for people suffering from treatment resistant depression, anxiety, suicidal ideations, OCD, PTSD and chronic pain conditions with no relief from other medications or therapeutic interventions.

Ketamine is a very short acting medication. Generally speaking, any side effect experienced from Ketamine will be short-term and will subside after the infusion has stopped. It can be normal to have slight increases in blood pressure and heart rate during an infusion. A small percentage of patient do experience some nausea during or right after the infusion. Nausea, elevated blood pressure and heart rate are easily managed through IV medications during the session should these arise. Most patient who do not eat for three hours prior to the session, and keep their eyes closed or use eyeshades during the session, will not experience any nausea.

In high doses and or with very frequent administration Ketamine can be irritating to the bladder. For the purposes of facilitating KAP, doses of ketamine are low and most patients will only do one or two sessions per week. In this dosing and frequency there an extremely low risk of for developing bladder irritation caused by the administration of ketamine.

During your medical intake, we will determine if you need to alter your medication regime prior to treatment. There are only a few medications that should be altered prior to initiating treatment. For instance, stimulant medications, benzodiazepines, and medications like Lamictal may need to be held or adjusted prior to treatment.

We request that you don't eat a meal within 3 hours of the start of your appointment time.

After receiving a ketamine infusion, it is normal to feel slightly tired or loopy for several hours. It would be unsafe to drive after a session so we do require that you arrange a family/friend to pick you up or utilize a taxi or other ride service.

It is best to provide time to fully process the therapeutic content that may have been worked through in the session. We encourage our clients to journal and integrate in the time following the session.

At Transcend, it is our goal to have this treatment be a highly transformative, short term intervention for you.

One of the reasons to undergo the KAP process with a therapist vs. receiving Ketamine infusion or injection only is because most people are more able to avoid needing maintenance treatment longterm with KAP. When symptom reduction has occurred through the chemical effects of ketamine only, there is often a need to re-administer ketamine every 20-40 days to keep symptoms at bay. With KAP, symptom reduction is more often secondary to therapeutic progress which does not dwindle in time, and therefore maintenance treatments are often not required.

The majority of our clients will reach sub-clinical levels of distress after an average of 5-6 sessions. Most of our clients will discharge from our care after these sessions and need any form of maintenance therapy. Some people do benefit from revisiting KAP intermittently throughout the year following the initial series as needed to continue therapeutic progress but this is not the most common treatment plan at Transcend.

For chronic pain treatment, it is more difficult to keep baseline pain levels down and flair-ups without maintenance infusions ongoing. The majority of patients with chronic pain will do sessions every 3-6 weeks to keep the pain reduced.

You can expect to be at the clinic for approximately 1.5-2 hours. There are many factors that influence the length of the infusion but most patients will receive a 35-45 minute ketamine infusion. Your Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy trained therapist and medical provider will be by your side throughout your entire time in the clinic.
