Learn More About Provider Personal Experiences With Ketamine

Getting up-to-date on the research and practical application of psychedelic-assisted therapy from the co-founders of the Integrative Psychiatry Institute. Only half of the ketamine story is about its bioactive properties for treating depression, but it can also produce a powerful psychedelic experience that can be leveraged with psychedelic-assisted therapy.

In today’s episode, Keith and Will discuss their personal experiences with ketamine-assisted psychotherapy in an intimate look at the power of this medicine, how to integrate both uplifting and very challenging experiences, and ways to start to get involved in the psychedelic-assisted therapy revolution.


Self-care is never a selfish act - it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer others. Anytime we can listen to true self and give the care it requires, we do it not only for ourselves but for the many others whose lives we touch.


The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.
