Why Use CIT Clinics To Provide KAP?
If you are trained and would like to provide KAP to your patients but don’t have a medical license, we can help. We are set up to provide all aspects of the KAP experience - you can use our space, anesthesiologists, nurses and administrative staff. All you need to do is book your session and bring your patients to one of our clinics. Let us handle all of the details so you can focus on your patient.
At this time Ketamine is the only psychedelic medicine used at CIT Clinics. This only is because Ketamine is the only legal psychedelic medicine in the United States. As other medicines such as MDMA and psilocybin become legal we will also be using these medicines in our treatment protocols.
Yes. We require all providers to have an active professional liability insurance policy per their licensure requirements.
Yes, we offer treatments 7 days a week. Your ability to provide KAP on weekends or evenings is limited only by schedule availability.

Treatment cost depends on the duration of the session and whether or not your patient wants other Combination Infusion Therapy medicines such as NAD+ and/or Glutathione in addition to Ketamine. For our standard Ketamine plus IV nutrients infusions you will be charged the following:
- 45 minute session – $495
- 60 minute session – $595
- 90 minute session – $745
- 120 minute session – $995
We can adjust the duration of your KAP session to any desired length of time. One of the benefits of administering Ketamine intravenously is that we can be very precise about both the dose and duration of the treatments. We can provide a 45 minute experience or a 4 hour experience. Studies indicate longer 4-hour sessions are for Chronic Pain management, while 1hr sessions are for mood disorders. Since every patient is different and every infusion experience is different, intravenous access allows us to personalize the treatment session from one treatment to the next. We have noticed that throughout the typical 6 infusion protocol (delivered over 2-3 weeks), patients are best served by adapting the treatment protocol to what they are experiencing on any given treatment day by adjusting the key variables of dose and duration.
It will depend on mental health insurance and how patients are paying for their therapy visit, but as a medical clinic, providing a documented clinical procedure allows us to help patients submit reimbursable records to their insurance. Patients heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate and O2 saturation are wirelessly monitored and recorded throughout. While we can’t guarantee reimbursement, we have found that being able to document the administration of several medicines (IV Nutrients for fatigue, NAD for alcohol or opioid cravings/withdrawals, etc.) within any given treatment for a multitude of diagnoses, dramatically increases the likelihood of it being viewed as a reimbursable procedure.

Dose increase – Imagine yourself nearing the end of a therapy session with a client who appears to be on the edge of a breakthrough. They just need a subtle nudge of dissociation to really dig into what has been holding them back for years. You simply press the call button and a CIT Anesthesiologist visits the treatment room with a small 5mg IV bolus of ketamine. Your patient is able to explore the issues further, the session extends 15-20 minutes, and they are able to conclude a successful session that would have otherwise been unachievable had the Ketamine been administered orally or via intramuscular injection.
Dose decrease – Conversely, consider a PTSD patient that you have been working with for years: They are in the midst of a session when their experience begins to darken as past memories are re-visited. You press the call button and a CIT Anesthesiologist arrives to turn down the Ketamine infusion rate and explores the option to administer a small amount of benzodiazepine medication (Versed). A small dose is given, the experience softens for the patient, just enough so that they can continue exploring the thoughts and emotions that just surfaced. Compare this to a dark experience with oral or IM Ketamine whose administration cannot be rescinded.
