Personalized Treatment Plans

Before starting ketamine therapy for anxiety or depression, you can expect an in-depth consultation with your therapist to discuss your expectations and goals. Together, you will determine the initial dosage and administration method that best suits your needs. This personalized approach ensures that your therapy journey is tailored to what you’re working toward.

Therapeutic Experiences

Once the medication is administered (sublingually, subcutaneously, or intramuscularly), you will enter a dream-like, altered state of consciousness within minutes. This unique state provides a profound opportunity for therapy, typically lasting between 45 minutes to an hour. Your therapist will guide you through this ketamine treatment experience, offering support and assistance.

Integrative Support

As you transition out of the altered state, you may feel a sense of euphoria and introspection. Our therapists will help you process and integrate the insights gained during the therapy session, empowering you to make tangible changes in your daily life based on your newfound awareness. We are committed to providing ongoing support as you navigate this transformative journey.

Safety First Always

While the effects of ketamine therapy wear off within a few hours, we prioritize your safety and well-being. We recommend arranging for a rideshare or having a companion drive you home after the session, as you may be technically impaired to operate a vehicle. Your safety is our utmost concern as you embark on the path to unlocking hope through Hill Family Medicine.
