Getting Started with Ketamine Therapy
We'll ask a few questions to get to know you and your mental health history and find out if Ketamine Therapy is right for you.
You'll meet with your Psychiatric Clinician to conduct a comprehensive evaluation and determine if ketamine therapy is right for you.
You'll be refunded if there is a decision not to proceed.
Our trained guides will sit with you on a zoom call during the session. From there you'll start the introspective therapy that will last 1-2 hours.
Ketamine allows you to disconnect from ordinary reality. It may provide insights, inspiration and an openness to new ideas while also enhancing feelings of purpose and creativity.
Integration is a critical part of the experience. After the experience, you’ll reflect on your session and refresh your mind. Journaling immediately in your notebook, will allow you to solidify and grow on your experience.

What happens during a ketamine therapy session?
Ketamine has a dissociative effect. This means that it creates a separation of mind and body, also commonly referred to as an out of body experience. While ketamine is not a true psychedelic, it does have psychedelic properties and creates an altered state of consciousness, allowing the mind to be outside of its normal waking status. In this state, the mind can access subconscious information.
Ketamine is a powerful disruptor of limiting beliefs around ourselves and our world, allowing one to see themselves truly without all the labels and limitations. It often creates a euphoric feeling for people and many people report having a sense of oneness and connectedness to others and to something bigger than themselves. Ketamine can also allow people to revisit times or memories of trauma and reconsolidate the memories around those events in a less painful, fearful or traumatic way.
Who is a good candidate for ketamine therapy?
Choose Ketamine was created for anyone seeking to take control over their anxiety or depression. Whether you're looking to enhance your current treatments or other treatments haven’t provided relief, Choose Ketamine can help develop a treatment plan specifically for you.
Although many people are good candidates, ketamine assisted therapy isn't for everyone. Choose Ketamine always puts the patient's health first and treatment decisions are made at our clinician’s discretion.

What Is ketamine and is it safe?
Ketamine is a legal medication, originally used for anesthesia. It was developed in the 1960s and was commonly used in the Vietnam war because it could be used in the field safely and effectively. Ketamine does not suppress the respiratory drive or paralyze muscles the way other anesthetics do, and its dissociative properties provide for rapid pain relief.
Ketamine has been used in mental health for more than 20 years, and as a result we know the medicine itself is extremely safe for most individuals. It’s also used as an off-label medication for pain and a variety of mental health conditions.
Can I continue taking antidepressants while undergoing ketamine therapy?
Yes. Ketamine can be used safely with many antidepressant medications. Always discuss medication plans with your primary physician to determine if any adverse effects may be possible. You can also discuss your options with the clinical team at Choose Ketamine.
In which States is Choose Ketamine available?
Arizona, Colorado, California, Texas, Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Connecticut, Washington State, Michigan, Massachusetts, Iowa, and Minnesota.
