Unlock a New Horizon in Healing with Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)

Experience Relief, Rejuvenation, and Restoration

What is Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)?

KAP is a cutting-edge therapeutic process wherein low doses of ketamine are administered in a controlled, therapeutic setting, accompanied by psychotherapy sessions. This combination aims to catalyze mental health breakthroughs, offering not only symptomatic relief but also facilitating a deeper understanding and resolution of underlying psychological issues.

What Does Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy Work?

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is an innovative and profound therapeutic intervention designed for individuals battling treatment-resistant depression. With its unique approach, KAP combines the potent effects of ketamine—an NMDA receptor antagonist—with the guiding presence of psychotherapy, paving the way for breakthroughs that have remained elusive with traditional treatments.


KAP is a self-pay treatment

We offer multiple packages for a Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy treatment series ranging from $3600 to $8000. Please contact our team to learn more.

Where can I get Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)?

We offer Esketamine (Spravato™) nasal spray and Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) at our Clearwave Mental Health clinics. 

We currently offer these services at our Poughkeepsie location and will soon branch out to our other locations.

How Can Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy Help You?

For those who have found little to no relief from traditional antidepressants, Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy offers a beacon of hope. Here’s how KAP can transform your path to healing:

  • Breaks the Cycle of Treatment-Resistant Depression: By directly influencing the brain’s chemistry and communication pathways, ketamine provides rapid relief from depressive symptoms, offering patients a chance to break free from the cycle of treatment-resistant depression.

  • Enhances Neuroplasticity: Ketamine is known to stimulate neuroplasticity—the brain’s ability to reorganize and form new neural connections—empowering patients with fresh perspectives, behaviors, and coping strategies.

  • Deepens Therapeutic Insights: The psychotherapeutic component of KAP allows patients to explore and address psychological challenges with enhanced clarity and openness, facilitated by ketamine’s unique cognitive effects.

The Promise of Ketamine in Therapeutic Settings

Ketamine’s promise as a therapeutic tool lies in its unique action on the brain. Unlike traditional antidepressants, which primarily target the brain’s serotonin and noradrenaline systems, ketamine acts on the NMDA receptor, offering rapid-acting relief from depressive symptoms. Its ability to enhance neuroplasticity not only provides immediate symptomatic relief but also opens the door to longer-term improvements in mental health.

What is Ketamine Assisted Pyschotherapy (KAP)?

KAP involves using ketamine in a therapeutic context. It combines the administration of ketamine with psychotherapy to address conditions like depression, anxiety, PTSD, and chronic pain.

Is KAP the same as esketamine treatment?

While both involve ketamine, KAP specifically integrates it with psychotherapy sessions. Esketamine treatments are typically administered without concurrent therapy.

How does ketamine work in KAP?

Ketamine affects brain pathways related to mood regulation. It may help alleviate symptoms by promoting neural plasticity and enhancing emotional processing.

Is ketamine addictive?

When used under clinical supervision, ketamine is generally not addictive. However, adherence to safety protocols is crucial.


How many KAP sessions will I need?

The number of sessions varies. Some individuals respond well after a few, while others may require more extended treatment.

Do I need to take time off work for KAP?

Sessions are typically scheduled during flexible hours. Contact us at Clearwave Mental Health to plan accordingly.

What medical conditions might disqualify me from KAP?

Conditions like active mania, ongoing psychotic symptoms, or uncontrolled hypertension may be contraindications.

Do I need a referral from my doctor for KAP?

No, a referral is not required. Before KAP, our team will perform a history and evaluation to confirm candidacy. 

Will my insurance cover Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy?

Insurance does not currently cover KAP. 

How long does Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy take to work?

The response time to Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy can vary greatly from one individual to another. Some patients report experiencing benefits almost immediately after treatment, within hours or days. Others may notice gradual improvements over the course of several sessions. The treatment regime can be tailored to each individual’s needs, and adjustments may be made based on your response to the therapy. It’s important to have an open and ongoing dialogue with your therapist about your progress and any adjustments that may be needed.
