2. The Ketamine Administration Process

The ketamine administration process follows the initial consultation. In California, at-home ketamine treatments often involve a sublingual tablet method, where the patient places the tablet to dissolve in the mouth for 10 to 15 minutes. 

The effects of sublingual ketamine are generally experienced within minutes after the tablet has dissolved and the residual substance is expelled.

Dosage schedules for ketamine treatments are personalized, taking into account the patient’s metabolic rate and sensitivity to the medication.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Ketamine, traditionally used as an anesthetic, has seen off-label application in addressing mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, and PTSD. This medication exhibits rapid-onset antidepressant and mood-elevating effects, often appearing within 1-2 hours post-administration and persisting for up to 2 weeks. Its mechanism involves blocking NMDA receptors in the brain while also stimulating AMPA receptors, believed to foster the formation of new synaptic connections and enhance neural circuits governing stress and mood regulation. Additionally, Ketamine demonstrates the ability to augment overall neuroplasticity, contributing to sustained symptom amelioration.
  • Various administration methods exist for Ketamine, including IV infusion, intramuscular injection, sublingual lozenges, and nasal spray. In partnership with Journey Clinical, we exclusively offer the sublingual lozenge format. This option proves advantageous for individuals ineligible for Spravato and tends to offer greater cost-effectiveness compared to IV or IM alternatives in the long term.
  • The effects of ketamine, which many patients describe as enjoyable, typically endure for around 45 minutes. These effects may induce a sense of detachment from the body and lead to shifts in perception that feel expansive. During this time, your motor and verbal skills may be diminished, necessitating a comfortable reclined position. Following the subsiding of these effects, the remaining portion of our session will be dedicated to providing you with the opportunity to reflect on and discuss your experience. While articulating the events of the encounter may prove challenging, patients often find the insights gained to be profound. Research indicates that the mood-enhancing and neurologically beneficial effects of ketamine can persist for up to two weeks following the experience.

Breaking Negative Thought Patterns

A notable attribute of ketamine therapy is its potential to dismantle negative thought patterns. Ketamine helps to repair neurons in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex that are damaged by stress by increasing brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) levels and promoting glutamate release.

Ketamine treatment activates the brain into a state of heightened neuroplasticity, becoming more receptive to forming new neural connections. This presents a crucial window for positive mental changes. Successfully integrating new insights and healthier thought patterns during this peak neuroplasticity period can result in profound and enduring improvements in mental wellness.

Beyond Symptom Relief

The benefits of ketamine therapy extend beyond mere symptom alleviation. Ketamine-induced breakthrough experiences or moments of ego dissolution can lead to the emergence of new self-narratives and personal insights. Patients have found that ketamine therapy allowed them to redefine their identity and outlook on life, which had long-term benefits beyond symptom relief.

Furthermore, integration sessions, including post-session discussions with a guide and reflection through journaling, play a key role in helping patients apply their therapy insights to everyday life. Virtual integration coaching is designed to support sustainable personal growth and the application of insights from ketamine therapy into one’s daily routine.
