OVERVIEW OF THE STEPS OF KETAMINE THERAPY Much of the intake and assessment will be over the course of the first 3-4 sessions. We can do this in 50 min sessions, or have extended sessions if that is preferable. You'll have a video call with the prescribing physician that I work with, Dr. Jesus Ramirez (Dr. Zeus). He will ask about your medical history and ask you to fill out some assessment scales regarding your mental health.
Then we will process your readiness for the medicine sessions. The length of ketamine sessions is 2.5-3 hours. You will be under ketamine’s influence for about an hour of these sessions. The choice of dose will depend on body weight, prior exposure to ketamine and other psychedelics, and sensitivity. Woven throughout your series of ketamine sessions, you will have follow-up sessions that focus on integration of your experience and may lead to further sessions.
