Ketamine-Assisted Therapy for Neurological Conditions

A specialized rehabilitative program for those with neurological conditions, especially conditions that have not responded to treatment.

What Is Ketamine-Assisted Therapy for Neurological Conditions?

Ketamine-assisted therapy (KAT) is a type of treatment that combines ketamine (a psychedelic medicine) and psychotherapy. This approach aims to address the root causes of mental health conditions and their impact on neurological conditions, to help facilitate the potential for lasting change in your daily life.

Our team utilizes a multi-dimensional, team-based approach that prioritizes safety and individualizes needs and goals. You are supported by a team that consists of physicians, neurologists, psychologists, physician assistants, nurses and registered therapists trained in psychedelic and ketamine-assisted therapy.

Common Conditions Treated

Mental Health Conditions:

Neurological Conditions:

  • Functional seizures (i.e., psychogenic non-epileptic seizures)
  • Functional neurological disorder
  • Persistent post-concussive symptoms (i.e., post-concussion syndrome)
  • Migraine & chronic headache
  • Long-COVID with neurological features

How it Works

When experiencing the effects of ketamine in a medical environment, short-term changes in your state of consciousness can help process strong emotions and memories that could otherwise be too painful or difficult to access. This experience may lead to personal breakthroughs by clarifying and helping address the root causes of mental health conditions and their contribution to neurological illness.

Research has also shown that ketamine induces neuroplasticity, which means it increases and strengthens connections in the brain creating a state in which the brain may function more optimally.

The combined effect of the experience of ketamine and the changes induced in the brain, provide the potential to produce lasting change to mental health conditions and their contribution to neurological diagnoses and/or improvement in certain neurological conditions.

Frequently
Asked
Questions

Is Ketamine Safe?

Ketamine is a legal medication in Canada that has been used for over 50 years as an anesthetic agent for surgery, and for over 20 years as a treatment for depression. It has been found to be safe when administered by appropriately trained health care practitioners in a safe, medical environment.

How Does Ketamine Feel?

Ketamine is a medicine with psychedelic properties. It can affect perception and sensations in the body and mind, sometimes producing sensations of floating or “out-of-body” experiences, relaxation, changes to negative feelings, and dream-like states.

Do I have to pay to be evaluated for treatment?

All assessments are covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). This means that there is no cost to our clients for evaluations and consultations with our medical team.

How much does treatment cost?

If you decide to go forward with treatment, there are costs associated with the treatment sessions; some of these may be covered by private insurance that you may have through your employer.

Please feel free to contact us as we will be happy to answer questions on cost, as well as to help guide you in finding out if your existing insurance may cover this service.
