After your assessment, you will be scheduled for a preparation session with one of our KAP therapists. This session allows you to become acquainted with the treatment room and build connection and trust with your therapist. During this time, the therapist will work with you to prepare for your first ketamine medicine session. You will discuss intentions, personal ceremony + ritual, choose an appropriate music playlist, review paperwork, answer questions, make safety plans, identify post-session escort, etc. 

KAP MEDICINE SESSIONS

To ensure your safety and comfort, both your KAP prescriber and therapist will be with you during the first KAP session. During following KAP sessions, the prescriber will be on site and the therapist will be with you to guide you through each ketamine medicine session.  KAP sessions generally last 2.5-3 hours, depending on the trajectory of the chosen route of administration.

 

Intramuscular (IM) injections tend to kick in within 3-5 minutes after administration and oral routes of administration (lozenges/troches/oral solution) tend to take 17-20 minutes for you to feel the effects of the medicine.  While IM injections are used most frequently in our office, we have found that clients with a significant trauma history sometimes prefer the slower engagement offered by oral ketamine. Your prescriber will talk with you about the optimal route of administration for you.

The typical outline of a KAP session starts with a provider recording your vitals - blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygenation level. We will verify that you have been fasting 4-6 hours and pretreat nausea as needed. Prior to ketamine administration, we will review your intentions, identify your chosen music playlist and make sure you are comfortable. 

Ketamine is administered and your providers are with you during the duration of the experience. We take notes about anything that comes up for you to discuss in integration sessions and are with you as the medicine begins to wear off to begin the integration process.

FLEXIBLE kap program 

Integration sessions allow time and space to make meaning of your ketamine experiences and to integrate valuable insights gained in KAP sessions into your daily life. "Ultimately and ideally, ketamine integration is interdisciplinary (drawing on dimensions of psychology, physical activity, and artistic expression), and clients are assumed to be multi-intentioned and seeking different outcomes along spectrums of healing and/or spiritual and personal growth." ("Understanding Ketamine" training by Fluence, 2021)

At Widening Circles, our basic KAP program includes an integration session with your KAP therapist shortly after each KAP session. We offer additional integration in the form of additional psychotherapy, neurofeedback, acupuncture, intuitive astrology, coaching, etc. Our program is unique in that you have a multidisciplinary treatment team that meets on a regular basis to coordinate care. 

INTEGRATION SESSIONS

FOLLOW UP WITH PRESCRIBER

At the end of your month of care, your prescriber will follow up with you to discuss your progress and overall treatment plan moving forward. At this time, you may decide to continue with the monthly treatment program, step down to a lesser level of care for maintenance, or resume care with your referring provider.
