Ketamine assisted psychotherapy (also known as KAP) may be beneficial in various mental health conditions as well as supporting abstinence from substances associated with psychological trauma (e.g complex/developmental trauma, PTSD).

KAP may not be beneficial for everyone. There are certain conditions or drug interactions that would make it inefficient or even potentially harmful.
