Your treatment session will deliver you to new awareness about yourself and your power in your life. In the weeks that follow, you will likely feel a positive boost in your mood and general outlook. However, it’s vital to remember that you are the empowered force responsible for maintaining forward movement on your path toward healing.
To crystallize the therapy’s transformative effects, it’s essential to take intentional steps after your treatment to digest, embody, and apply the insights and discoveries from your inner exploration. Consistent, ongoing follow-up with your primary doctor and/or mental health provider during and after ketamine therapy is paramount to successful treatment and creates the best chances for long-term recovery. You can do this post-treatment processing alone or with the support of our in-house therapist or your trusted mental health clinician. Research suggests that cognitive behavioral therapy can extend the antidepressant effects of the treatment, thereby reducing the frequency of maintenance infusions needed.
We use the Osmind platform and mood-tracking app to stay in touch between appointments. Via secure message during business hours, we’ll ask you to submit brief surveys to track your feelings after sessions so that we can appropriately adjust your doses in ensuing appointments. Such measurement-based care (MBC) improves patient satisfaction, outcomes, and adherence to the treatment plan and thereby enhances ketamine therapy’s effectiveness and efficiency. Journaling—in Osmind or elsewhere—is another productive way to gather and record thoughts and lessons from the treatment experience. Finally, Osmind allows you to easily submit superbills for possible out-of-network insurance reimbursement. For details, see our Osmind page here.
Incorporating healthy sleep, diet, exercise, and social connections into your journey is beneficial. We can point you to additional resources to help you reap the most benefits from your treatment. We partner with specialists in nutrition, acupuncture, movement, bodywork, breathwork, and mental health care to help you adopt and adapt wellness into your larger soft reboot experience.
