We understand that each individual’s journey is unique, and so should be their treatment. Our therapeutic approach is personalized, addressing your unique struggles and strengthening your inherent capacities for resilience and growth.

      We believe in the power of innovation in medicine and the remarkable potential of treatments like Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy. This method involves the controlled use of ketamine—a medication originally developed as an anesthetic but now recognized for its profound therapeutic effects on the brain—to enhance the impact of psychotherapy.

      By promoting the formation of new neural connections and revitalizing the parts of the brain associated with mood and emotion, Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy can lift the clouds of the most severe mental health conditions, helping you see the sun on the horizon. This novel approach can be a lifeline when traditional treatments have fallen short, providing hope, relief, and a path towards better mental health.

      At Revitalist, we’re not just about treating symptoms; we’re about empowering you to lead a happier, healthier life. As we embark on this journey together, our team will be with you every step of the way, providing professional guidance, compassionate care, and unwavering support.

      Begin your journey towards mental wellness with Revitalist today and experience the transformative power of Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy. Because you deserve not just to survive, but to thrive.

      Understanding Ketamine

      Ketamine, despite its controversial reputation in the realm of recreational drugs, has been radically redefining the landscape of mental health treatments in a clinical context. First synthesized in the 1960s, ketamine was initially employed as an anesthetic for surgical procedures. Over the years, however, scientific exploration began to unearth ketamine’s profound potential for mental health treatment, a discovery that has since revolutionized our approach to various psychological conditions.

      In the human brain, ketamine exhibits a unique mode of action, unlike traditional antidepressants. It targets the glutamate system—one of the brain’s most abundant and vital neurotransmitters involved in neural activation. Through this interaction, ketamine facilitates the enhancement of neural plasticity, the ability of neural networks in the brain to change through growth and reorganization. This rekindling of connections, in areas of the brain instrumental in regulating mood and emotions, opens the door to rapid and substantial alleviation of symptoms in a variety of mental health disorders.

      The impact of ketamine is not simply a biochemical event but a transformative journey in itself. Patients often describe their ketamine experiences as profound, encountering new perspectives and insights during their sessions. This distinctive characteristic of ketamine aids in integrating these experiences in subsequent psychotherapy sessions, enabling individuals to work through their emotional blockages and distressing experiences more effectively.

      One significant advantage of ketamine over traditional medications is the speed at which it delivers results. While standard antidepressants often take weeks to months to exhibit discernible effects, ketamine can provide relief within hours of administration. This swift action can be a lifeline for individuals grappling with severe conditions like suicidal ideation or major depressive disorder, where every moment counts.

      It is important to note that the application of ketamine in a medical context is safe and controlled. At Revitalist, we administer ketamine under the careful supervision of our experienced medical team, ensuring that your health and safety are paramount during the process.

      We invite you to delve into the transformative potential of ketamine. Through Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy at Revitalist, you are not just receiving a novel treatment; you are embarking on a journey of healing and self-discovery, guided by a team of compassionate professionals committed to your wellbeing.

      Conditions Treated by Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy

      Revitalist utilizes the transformative potential of Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy to offer relief for a wide array of psychological conditions. The conditions we treat extend beyond the traditionally recognized mental health disorders. We firmly believe that mental health isn’t merely the absence of disease, but also involves comprehensive wellbeing, including coping with chronic pain and neurological conditions.

      In each case, our goal at Revitalist is not just to administer ketamine, but to use it as a powerful tool in a broader therapeutic context. Through our Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy, we aim to provide immediate relief from severe symptoms while also facilitating longer-term mental and emotional growth. We’re here to guide you on your journey towards a better, healthier life.

      Suicidal Ideation

      Living with constant thoughts of ending one's life is an unbearable burden. Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy has shown great promise in mitigating such destructive ideation. It provides not only immediate relief from the enveloping darkness but also a platform for longer-term therapeutic interventions. We're here to support you through this difficult time.


      Depression acts like a dense fog, obscuring joy and vitality. By promoting neuroplasticity and reactivating the brain's ability to adapt positively to environmental stimuli, ketamine lifts this fog. Coupled with our empathetic support, you can reclaim the light in your life.


      Anxiety creates a constant state of apprehension and fear. Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy provides a calming counterbalance to this incessant turmoil, offering you a newfound sense of control and tranquillity.


      Post-traumatic stress disorder often leads to an unwanted replay of past traumas. Ketamine can help unlock these loops, providing a therapeutic space to safely process these experiences. We offer an empathetic, supportive environment to guide you on your healing journey.

      Chronic Pain

      Chronic pain is not just a physical issue—it reverberates through your emotional and mental health as well. Ketamine's potential in managing pain symptoms while also addressing the associated mental health conditions provides a holistic approach to well-being.

      Substance Abuse

      Substance abuse is a multifaceted issue, and combating it requires a comprehensive approach. Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy can act as a potent ally in this battle. It aids in "resetting" certain areas of the brain, working alongside other treatments to help you regain control over your life.


      Obsessive-compulsive disorder can often feel like a prison, trapping you in a cycle of recurring thoughts and compulsions. Ketamine therapy offers a key to this prison, breaking the cycle and presenting new perspectives for personal growth.

      Bipolar and Unipolar Disorders

      Bipolar and unipolar disorders can result in distressing mood swings and emotional distress. Ketamine therapy acts as a stabilizer, reducing distress and offering a pathway towards emotional equilibrium and a more balanced life.


      Migraines are severe neurological conditions that can severely impact daily life. By acting on the brain's pain pathways, ketamine therapy can help reduce the intensity and frequency of migraines, thus improving your quality of life.

      Postpartum Depression

      Postpartum depression can steal the joy of motherhood during a time that should be filled with happiness. Ketamine therapy can offer rapid relief, assisting in re-establishing a loving bond with your newborn and yourself.


      Fibromyalgia, characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain and fatigue, can be debilitating. Ketamine's dual-action mechanism—targeting both mood regulation and pain—can offer comprehensive relief for those grappling with this chronic condition.

      The Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy Process at Revitalist

      At Revitalist, we are devoted to providing you with a personalized and effective Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy process. Our dedicated professionals have designed a comprehensive procedure that places your wellbeing at its core.

      Our therapeutic journey begins with an in-depth consultation and assessment. This step is crucial as it allows us to gain a thorough understanding of your specific situation, the challenges you face, and your overall medical history. It is during this consultation that we establish the foundation of the personalized treatment plan we’ll create for you.

      This treatment plan is far from static; instead, it’s a dynamic blueprint that adapts to your needs as you progress through therapy. Our team continuously reviews and refines this plan, ensuring that it remains in tune with your changing needs and therapeutic responses.

      Administering the ketamine is done under strict medical supervision. We maintain stringent safety protocols throughout this process. Dosages are carefully calculated, ensuring you receive the right amount of medication that is both safe and effective for you.

      Our psychotherapy sessions occur in a safe and comfortable environment, typically during the heightened state of awareness induced by ketamine. This unique combination allows our therapists to guide you through introspective journeys, helping you explore your inner self and work towards personal growth.

      Post-treatment, we don’t just send you off into the world alone; you’re not left to navigate the complexities of your everyday life without support. We offer post-therapy support, including integrative sessions to help you process your experiences and apply the insights you’ve gained into your daily life.

      Our integrative sessions are an essential component of our therapy process. They help you understand and assimilate your ketamine experience. Each insight gained during these sessions could be a potential turning point in your life, allowing you to break free from the cycles that have been holding you back.

      Our commitment to you extends beyond your therapy sessions. We’re dedicated to ongoing support and care, ensuring you have the tools you need to continue the healing process independently. Your therapy journey may also involve supportive activities like mindfulness, meditation, yoga, or other self-care practices. We offer guidance on these practices, fostering a holistic approach to wellbeing.

      We understand that entrusting your mental health to us is a significant decision. That’s why we prioritize transparency and communication throughout your therapy journey. We’re here to answer any questions you may have, addressing your concerns and providing you with all the information you need.

      At Revitalist, our Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy is more than just a medical treatment—it’s a therapeutic journey designed around you. With our dedicated team, rigorous safety measures, and individualized care, we’re here to guide you towards hope, healing, and a revitalized life.
