Addiction, depression, trauma — these experiences can leave people trapped in a web of confusing and painful emotions. To find true healing, one must dive a little deeper into the healing journey. Ketamine-Assisted Therapy combines the power of Ketamine IV treatments with talk therapy, allowing you to explore the emotions, memories and experiences tying you to addiction or emotional and mental difficulties.
The Sanctuary offers Ketamine-Assisted Therapy, NAD+, and Vitamin IV Therapy as an add-on with additional cost to our holistic 30-day, residential drug, and trauma recovery program.
What Is Ketamine?
Ketamine is a synthetic compound and medicine that’s been used as an anesthetic and analgesic for decades. More recently, it’s becoming increasingly popular for its ability to benefit people struggling with addiction and mental health disorders.
Ketamine is a safe, well-researched medicine that is 100% legal and FDA-approved for many indications related to anesthesia. It is on the World Health Organization’s list of essential medicines and has been credited with saving lives when used as an anesthetic, pain reliever, and anxiety reliever. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of Ketamine treatment centers all over the U.S. as of 2021.
Ketamine is also used in hospices around the globe for treating end-of-life anxiety, pain, and fear. It is being investigated as an agent to treat other serious conditions, such as Parkinson’s Disease.
Ketamine is widely used in the mainstream medical system and is an effective treatment for:
- Drug addiction
- Alcohol use disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Chronic Pain
Because of its effectiveness within just a few sessions, ketamine therapy is becoming more widely available. But what makes it different at The Sanctuary is how it’s woven into our holistic treatment process.

WHAT IS Ketamine Assisted Treatment/Therapy?
Ketamine-Assisted Treatment (KAT), known more widely as Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), is a cutting-edge approach to traditional psychotherapy. Ketamine treatment works by modulating a neurotransmitter called glutamate. In the right dose, it amplifies the mind’s unconscious process.
Everyone has barriers and defense mechanisms they use to push away painful memories, emotions and fears. We repress unpleasant emotions and memories in the unconscious mind where they can’t be easily accessed. Ketamine lowers these barriers and opens clients up to the unconscious. This process is combined with psychotherapy, or talk therapy, allowing clients to examine and work through painful experiences in a safe and freeing environment.
Trained clinicians have been using KAT safely as an adjunct to psychotherapy for almost 20 years. Because of its effectiveness within just a few sessions, Ketamine therapy is becoming more widely available. But what makes it different at The Sanctuary is how it’s woven into our holistic treatment process.
