Many individuals may be new to the idea of at-home ketamine treatment. This article provides an overview of the at-home therapy model, the safety profile, and several of the unique benefits afforded by this.

What Do You Mean by At-Home Therapy?

Mindbloom offers treatment through a fully at-home model. 

Every step of the process – from your clinical consult, receiving your prescription, conducting your medicine sessions, and integrating with your care team – is done via telehealth, from the comfort of your own home.

To ensure safe, powerful, and effective healing sessions, you are required to have Peer-Treatment Monitor (PTM) present in your physical location for each dosing session.

At-Home Ketamine is Remarkably Safe

Ketamine has been studied in medical, clinical, and scientific contexts for over 5 decades since it was first synthesized. 

Over this time, it continues to demonstrate its safety profile for a wide range of clients and clinical scenarios.

There are many steps taken to ensure that you are safe and supported throughout every step of your experience: 

  • Licensed clinicians conduct your initial consultation, determine eligibility, create a care plan customized for you, and are available for medical support throughout your program. 
  • You are then paired with expertly-trained guides, who have extensive experience in ketamine therapy and facilitation, helping you to prepare, conduct your sessions, and understand your experiences afterwards. 
  • Everyone, for each session, is required to have a Peer Treatment Monitor. Someone over the age of 18 who is safe and supportive to monitor your status throughout the session, and be a helping hand and direct line of contact to your Guide during treatments.
  • Finally, thoughtfully curated programming helps you further explore your experience, prepare your set and setting, and continue to get the most out of your experiences. 

The largest clinical study of at-home ketamine therapy demonstrates the safety and efficacy of this model.

Unique Benefits of At-Home Therapy

At-home therapy offers several unique benefits, these include: 

  1. Affordable Treatment: By reducing overhead costs, the at-home model allows us to greatly reduce the cost of care and create more affordable treatment for those in need.

  2. Convenient & Accessible Care: Ketamine therapy from the comfort and ease of your own home is a unique advantage not accessible with other methods of ketamine therapy.

  3. Comfortable & Familiar Setting: Your mindset and your physical setting are powerful influences on your medicine experiences. Having the comfort and familiarity of your home enables you to relax more easily into the experience and focus on your healing.

  4. Smooth Re-entry Post-Session: Instead of having to be picked up, driven back home through traffic, and other obstacles, you can smoothly enter your integration period post-session as you are already back in your home.

  5. It’s Human: Ketamine therapy and mental health solutions should prioritize and design themselves around you. At-home models allow us to do that directly.
