Get Rid of Your Depression Symptoms with KAP

Beating depression is no easy feat. It requires diligent effort, consistency, and the right support system to overcome. Research has suggested an episode of clinical depression on average lasts about 10 months. That is a very long time to being feeling so low and disconnected with yourself. Some will suffer from depression on and off their entire lives, while others may feel better after short-term therapeutic and pharmaceutical intervention.

Using ketamine is a new type of pharmaceutical and therapeutic intervention. Over 10 years of research has been conducted on Ketamine and its effects on depression, beginning with a ground-breaking research study from Yale. All the research has found Ketamine is effective at reducing (and sometimes eliminating) depression symptoms just after one dose – particularly treatment-resistant-depression. Ketamine has also been found to be more effective than long-term antidepressant uses in treating and managing depression symptoms.

The reason ketamine can be more effective than antidepressants is because it targets a different kind of neurotransmitter, enabling it to reduce depression symptoms rapidly. So, what does this have to do with therapy?

Well, a micro-dose of ketamine used in session along with psychotherapy has been shown to reduce, and even eliminate depression symptoms for up to 10 days. Now this may not seem like a lot of time, but the use of the ketamine allows people who feel stuck, to get unstuck. If you are suffering from depression, you already understand how profound this is. Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy enables you to think in a more positive and hopeful way, which can be difficult to do otherwise.

With the help of psychotherapy, the reduction/elimination of symptoms allows you to heal from long-lasting depressive issues and enable them to make necessary changes to make the effects last even longer.

Offering Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) at Safe Space Counseling is one way I want to help those suffering from depression to significantly reduce their symptoms, allowing them to feel hope and providing them a new chance at beating their depression.
