How It Works

Our philosophy

Curio is the most hands-on and complete mental health virtual clinic for ketamine treatment. Our concierge approach means we will guide and support you every step of the way with the goal of offering a highly personal and effective experience.

We are a mission-driven company and believe in whole-person health and wellness. This means we recommend psychedelics and other interventions only if they are appropriate and helpful for you at this point in time. In addition to ketamine, we offer comprehensive medication management including refills and new prescriptions, 1:1 and group coaching, and a growing body of learning resources delivered in content programs.

Preparation

This step is incredibly important as you begin your psychedelic-assisted therapy journey. Ketamine’s benefits are due to its psychological impacts through your experiences as much as from its chemical effects. Our preparation process includes a medical screening to provide the safest experience for your body, and coaching and education to provide the safest experience for your mind. Your specific ketamine plan including dosage, schedule, and integration sessions will be designed specifically for you according to your needs.
Preparation includes:
  • Medical baseline questionnaire
  • Clinician visit to determine plan for dose and schedule
  • Learn about what to expect through the Curio Preparation Program and your Curio Coach

Ketamine Experience

We will be at your side for every step of your at-home ketamine experience. Your clinician will help you plan and adjust your ketamine dosages according to your needs and goals. This is done with an upfront planning appointment as well as adjustment appointments as needed. Your Curio Coach is the one who will help you align to your growth plan, starting with a preparatory intro session for intention setting, and with ongoing integration sessions after every experience (see below).
The Ketamine Experience includes:
  • Intention setting with your Curio Coach and/or therapist
  • Optimizing your physical being and space including finding an in-person session monitor
  • Guided experience (~90 minutes) in your home with a dissolvable lozenge form of ketamine

Integration

Integration is the key to obtaining the most long-lasting benefits from psychedelic-assisted therapy. The process begins as soon as you come out of your psychedelic experience, and continues indefinitely as you grow emotionally. Your Curio Coach will be available to you on an ongoing basis to help you process your emotions and figure out actionable insights.
Integration includes:
  1. Write down or otherwise record your thoughts and insights from your session
  2. Apply new actions with the help of your Curio Coach and any resources they suggest
  3. Consider new or evolved intentions for future psychedelic sessions
