What: Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) combines the use of ketamine, a dissociative anesthetic, with psychotherapy to produce rapid and sustained improvements in symptoms.

How: KAP is thought to work by altering the brain's glutamate system, which is involved in mood regulation. Ketamine also produces a unique state of consciousness that can facilitate introspection and emotional processing.

Research: There is a growing body of research supporting the efficacy of KAP. Studies have shown that KAP can produce significant reductions in symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD. KAP has also been shown to be effective in treating patients who have not responded to other treatments.

Physical: KAP is generally well-tolerated, with the most common side effects being nausea, vomiting, and dizziness. These side effects are usually mild and transient.
