Psychotherapist Rick Scott Ph.D. talks about his experiences providing Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) at CIT Clinics.
I have a Ph.D. in psychology, a Master's, and Specialist degree in counseling and so I'm a psychotherapist in mill valley private practice and I've been doing it for 30 years. Find a great place, I mean this is a great place. It's the go-to place for me because it's trustworthy, I love the people here and if anything comes up they're on it, right they're addressing it. You can't really do that in your office you know, you don't have that kind of staff necessarily. I think, if you're starting out you want to be fully supported. I wouldn't do it with somebody one-on-one first, not for a while. There's a lot of ketamine out there, I mean people are doing it through various online, they do lozenges so I got exposure to all of that.
The reason I come here is it's very professional, it's super compassionate, it's set up we have a nurse, we have the anesthesiology and the setting is already perfect the music even is already ready to go and then if anything goes it's a setting that provides a lot of trustworthiness. So for a person to let go on a psychedelic, like on a dissociative anesthetic like ketamine they have to really feel comfortable they have to really trust where they are. So that's the biggest part coming here, plus the IV versus lozenge IM rate(Intramuscular Injection).
Much more regulated right, and plus then you're getting the vitamins and the rest of it. It's just a really comfortable professional place to do it you know, there's no nowhere else around that I know like that, I do some stuff with people who do lozenges and it's not the same.
