We specialize in assisting those who have a chronic (long-lasting) condition, such as an autoimmune disorder or cancer. Suitability for certain treatments, such as ketamine-assisted therapy, is determined on a case-by-case basis following a thorough assessment.

What is ketamine-assisted therapy (KAT)?

Ketamine-assisted therapy is a form of treatment where ketamine, a medication with powerful antidepressant effects, is used in conjunction with coaching or psychotherapy to help facilitate therapeutic change. At Curio, we conduct KAT virtually and will offer you preparation before, guidance during, and integration support after your ketamine sessions.

Is ketamine legal for use in the U.S.?

Yes, ketamine is a legal substance when prescribed by a properly licensed physician in the U.S. Certain forms of ketamine are used for mental health and have been shown in rigorous scientific studies to be helpful in conditions such as depression and suicidality.

Is ketamine-assisted therapy safe?

Ketamine has been used safely in medicine for over 50 years. As with any treatment, there are potential risks and side effects, but our team of professionals will ensure that you are fully informed and that your safety is closely monitored throughout the process.
