What is Ketamine Assisted Therapy?

Ketamine Assisted Therapy (KAT) is a cutting-edge therapeutic approach that combines the powerful effects of ketamine with skilled therapeutic guidance to address a range of mental health conditions. Ketamine, when administered in a controlled and supervised setting, can create an altered state of consciousness that allows individuals to explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences more deeply. It works by modulating neurotransmitters in the brain, promoting neuroplasticity, and enabling the formation of new neural connections.

This unique process often leads to rapid and profound relief from conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and more. During a KAT session at the Oregon Center for Optimal Health, Dr Jorgenson provides compassionate support and guidance, helping patients navigate their inner landscapes, gain insights into the root causes of their challenges, and develop coping strategies. KAT offers not only relief from symptoms but also the opportunity for profound personal growth and transformation, making it a promising option for those seeking holistic and effective mental health care.

How does Ketamine Assisted Therapy Work?

Ketamine, when administered in a controlled and supervised setting, can profoundly impact brain function. It works by modulating neurotransmitters like glutamate, leading to the formation of new neural pathways and synapses. This neuroplasticity can help individuals break free from the patterns of negative thinking and emotions that contribute to their mental health challenges. During KAT sessions, patients experience an altered state of consciousness that allows them to explore their thoughts and emotions more deeply, guided by Dr Jorgenson.
