Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy in Westlake Village
What is Ketamine?
Ketamine is a legal, safe and effective medicine used to treat a variety of mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety and PTSD. Ketamine has quick-acting mood-enhancing effects, which take effect within one to two hours after treatment and last for up to two weeks. Its properties work in the brain to help form new connections and boost neural circuits that regulate stress and mood. Ketamine has also been shown to enhance overall neuroplasticity for lasting symptom improvement.
This means old, rigid defense patterns get softened, allowing for new connections and deep healing.
Ketamine can be administered in a variety of ways, including IV infusion, intramuscular injection, via nasal spray and using sublingual lozenges. In my work with Journey Clinical we only use the sublingual lozenge form.
