What is Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)?

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is an innovative therapeutic approach that merges the transformative qualities of ketamine with the foundational principles of psychotherapy. At its core, KAP seeks to amplify the healing journey, allowing patients to delve deeper into their consciousness, confront past traumas, and foster sustained improvements.

By seamlessly blending the pharmacological effects of ketamine with therapeutic guidance, KAP provides a holistic pathway to mental well-being, unlocking avenues of understanding and self-awareness previously unattainable through traditional methods alone.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ketamine is a legal and safe medication used for treating mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Its potent antidepressant and mood-enhancing effects can start within 1-2 hours of administration and persist for up to two weeks.

This drug functions by modulating the brain’s NMDA and AMPA receptors, establishing new synaptic connections and reinforcing neural pathways that control stress and mood, thus fostering enhanced neuroplasticity for lasting symptom alleviation. Among its various administration methods, such as IV infusion, intramuscular injection, and nasal sprays, CRS, in collaboration with Skylight, exclusively uses the sublingual lozenge method.

Ketamine induces a unique experience that many describe as a detached feeling from one’s body, combined with expansive shifts in perception. This sensation typically endures for about 45 minutes. During the treatment process, we have all patients lie comfortably as their motor and verbal abilities are reduced.

Once these effects subside, the remainder of the appointment is devoted to reflecting upon and discussing the experience with your CRS therapist. While many people struggle to articulate exactly what they experienced during the session, many patients walk away with a sense of clarity of enlightenment. According to documented studies, the benefits of KAP, including mood and neurological growth, can last for up to two weeks.

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) at CRS begins with an initial 1-hour consultation with a CRS therapist to delve into your mental health history, explore current issues, and evaluate the suitability of KAP for you; this is potentially billable to specific insurance providers. Next, you’ll have a virtual evaluation with Skylight’s medical team to discuss your medical background, be educated on the procedure, and gauge eligibility for KAP. Eligible candidates receive a personalized ketamine prescription and a kit for their first two sessions, including guidance on self-administration and vital checks.

The core of the therapy involves preparation sessions to set intentions, followed by 2-3 hour dosing sessions, either in-person or via telehealth. Here, patients, under the guidance of their therapist, self-administer a ketamine lozenge, recline comfortably with an eye mask and headphones, and immerse themselves into a therapeutic and introspective experience. For safety, an at-home chaperone is necessary, and for in-office dosing, a designated driver post-session. After each dosing session, integration sessions help patients process and interpret their experiences. Skylight ensures regular post-session medical consultations, at least quarterly, to monitor progress and determine any prescription adjustments.

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy is an affordable, accessible modality. Although the medical intake and follow-ups with Skylight are not covered by insurance, they are eligible for out-of-network reimbursement. CRS Intake, Preparation, and Integration are billable to insurance with a covered diagnosis (CRS is In-Network with Aetna, Anthem BCBS, Cigna, and Friday Health Plans. Please note we are unable to accept Medicaid for KAP at this time). CRS accepts payment via debit/credit card, HSA, or cash.

  • Individual Hourly Rate for CRS Preparation and Integration Sessions: $150
  • Group Hourly Rate for CRS Preparation, Dosing, and Integration Sessions: $100

Dosing Session: $450 for a 3-hour session ($150 per hour). $225 deposit is due when scheduling the dosing session with your therapist (typically within a week of your preparation session). *Dosing session not billable to insurance.
