Selecting Your Personalized Pathway in the Mindbloom App
Personalize your Mindbloom program to your unique goals with the mobile app.
After an initial onboarding session, you can select from our available learning pathways to customize your program to your goals.
If you are using the Mindbloom app, here is how you can select your pathway and personalize your treatment.
Step 1: Scheduling and Completing Your First Session
The first session will help you become familiar with ketamine therapy and begin your Mindbloom program.
You will select a specific pathway for the remainder of your program once you have completed your first session.
Step 2: Selecting Your Pathway in the App
Once you have completed your first session, you will have the opportunity to select the personalized pathway you want to follow for the remainder of your Mindbloom program.
You can read more about the specific pathways and their areas of focus in this article.
Selecting ‘Learn More’ under any of the pathways will give you an overview of the program and its specific area of focus.
Step 3: Learn More About Your Specific Program
When you select ‘Learn more’ on any of the pathways, you will see the core topics and themes that the pathway covers.
This allows you to find the program that is best suited for the areas that you want to work on in your life right now. It might be around emotional overwhelm, depression, habit change, or more.
All pathways include preparation, session, and integration content for all sessions.
Step 4: Completing Your Chosen Pathway
Once you have selected your pathway, you will be entered into that pathway for the remaining sessions of your program.
Once you have selected your pathway and scheduled your next session, you’re all set!

While ketamine has not been shown to be physically addictive, it has been shown to cause moderate psychological dependency in some recreational users.

- Ketamine may worsen problems in people with schizophrenia, severe personality disorders, or other serious mental disorders.
- Users with a personal or family history of psychosis should be cautious using any psychoactive substance, including ketamine, and discuss potential risks with your MindBloom® clinician before proceeding with treatment.
- The dissociative effects of ketamine may increase patient vulnerability and the risk of accidents.
To promote positive outcomes and ensure safety, follow these ketamine treatment guidelines:

- Avoid hangovers or alcohol intake
