AMHERST, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, January 11, 2023/ / -- Cambridge Biotherapies, the Boston area’s leading mental health treatment center, announced the roll-out of innovative ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP) options at both of their locations, branded as the “KAPstone Psychedelic Therapy Program”.

With locations in Cambridge and Amherst, Cambridge Biotherapies has been pioneering evidence-based and innovative treatments such as ketamine infusion therapy. Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP) is widely considered the most powerful and potentially transformative way to use ketamine in the treatment of depression and anxiety. KAP is a form of talk therapy that integrates the powerful and transformative effects of ketamine infusion to allow for greater psychological healing and neural growth.

At Cambridge Biotherapies, KAP sessions are split into three phases: Getting Started, Ketamine Infusions and Integration, and Follow-Up. Getting Started preparatory sessions work through the patient’s life history and help them understand their symptoms and intentions.


During the infusion + integration sessions, Cambridge Biotherapies’ experts work with the patient to administer the ketamine infusion, and afterwards, interpret the content of the experience by identifying insights or analyzing thoughts that arose during the experience. This process of understanding leads to meaningful, long-term changes. In the follow-up scheduled about a month after the final infusion, overall outcome is evaluated as a part of a discussion about possible next steps.

Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy can be a transformative experience. It does not need to replace any current therapy or treatment. KAP often works best as an adjunctive treatment to ongoing psychotherapy. Nevertheless, some patients benefit from a course of KAP even though they are not currently engaged in another psychotherapy or treatment plan.

In addition to providing this new treatment option, Cambridge Biotherapies is paving new ground in the use of psychedelic therapy. New research into these treatments will soon open up vital and much-needed options for those struggling with mood disorders and mental health conditions.
