Ketamine-Assisted
Psychotherapy (KAP) Services

How to begin your KAP Journey
at Widening Circles

STEP ONE:  PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH ASSESSMENT

At Widening Circles, safety is of paramount importance:

 

  • All patients new to Widening Circles must start with an initial assessment, which includes a medical evaluation, a mental health evaluation, and preparation for your journey.

  • Ketamine may not be safe for everyone; both medical and mental health assessments are required to determine its suitability for each patient's healing journey. Any concerns about the safety or indication of therapeutic ketamine will be addressed, and if deemed unsafe or not indicated, a medicine session will not be scheduled.

***Current patients of Widening Circles who have already had a medical and mental health evaluation within the past year do not need an additional evaluation and may schedule a follow-up KAP session according to their current plan or may purchase a new journey plan.

STEP two: Schedule a single KAP Journey

Once you have completed both your mental health and medical evaluations, and you and your team have determined that ketamine-assisted psychotherapy is appropriate for you, you may then schedule your first KAP journey.  Please see chart below for treatment options.   

*Please note that our team may recommend against your first experience with ketamine being in a group setting.

STEP THREE: FOLLOW UP KAP JOURNEYS

Ongoing research suggests an average of 6 ketamine medicine sessions for optimal improvement, though the required number of ketamine sessions varies for each individual. This may be influenced by factors such as the severity of depression, response to treatment, and tolerance. You may choose to pay for single journey as you go, or opt for a series. Choosing a KAP Series provides a 10% savings compared to paying for each journey individually. 


***3 hour ketamine medicine journeys can be scheduled upon request.  Please discuss with your treatment team.
