A Clinical Primer on Making Treatment More Effective

Reviewed by Ampelis Recovery Medical Director Dr. Andrew Petersen, DO, and Clinical Director Dr. Trish Henrie-Barrus, Ph.D. 

Clinicians have used ketamine since the 1960s for anesthetic purposes and, more recently, to treat addiction. Often people with addiction are struggling with past trauma as well as depression and anxiety. At Ampelis Recovery, we use ketamine-assisted psychotherapy to help our clients work through past trauma and issues, allowing them to move forward to create a more meaningful life without those burdens of the past.

In this ebook, you will learn about:

  • Ketamine’s mechanism of action
  • What a standard ketamine infusion therapy regimen looks like
  • How ketamine makes psychological treatment more effective for co-occurring disorders like depression and anxiety
  • How ketamine helps to heal and replenish neuroplasticity
