Frequently asked questions

Who is the treatment not for?

There are potential contraindications and risk factors that may result in program not being a good fit.

Although the use of psychedelic therapy is safe, there are some conditions that may result in risks that would make our program a poor fit for you. We assess all individuals for any possible safety concerns prior to starting treatment.

Our experts will closely assess you during our consultation process to make sure our program is a safe fit for you.

What can I expect from the treatment?

You can expect to feel positive, uplifting effects on the first day of treatment. Antidepressant effects are common and as a result, our treatment is effective in eliminating suicidal ideations. Long-term, positive change occurs when you are committed to your healing practice and journey. 

As you progress through the program, you can expect to deepen your connection with yourself and experience yourself in a whole new way.

How does ketamine treatment work?

Ketamine interacts with some of your brain’s neurotransmitters. Its effects can include relieving anxiety and pain relief, and acting as an antidepressant. Under medical supervision, lower doses of ketamine can relax your mind and allow you to temporarily disengage from your routine thought patterns. The best part about this is when combined with psychotherapy, studies found it can be very helpful in reducing anxiety and depression.

How safe is ketamine therapy?

Ketamine therapy is proven to be safe, especially when used in a supervised setting at low doses perscribed by our experts. By your side, you will have fully trained health professionals throughout your treatment journey. As with any treatment, there are potential risks and side effects. Before beginning your treatment with Optimind, you will meet with our medical team to ensure our Psychadelic-enhanced therapy is a good fit for you.

What is the difference between IV ketamine clinic treatment and Optimind's Psychadelic-enhanced therapy treatment?
Optimind takes a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach to ketamine-assisted treatment, which harnesses the psychedelic aspects of ketamine and uses them for healing.  As a result, we’ve carefully built our facilities to encourage a sense of safety and comfort, which is a necessary basis for each person’s self-work, exploration, and integration in their experiences and with their therapist. Furthermore, the ketamine administered is dosed with care, taking into account each individual’s distinct thinking, circumstances, and past history.  While ketamine as a drug has anti-depressant properties by itself, it is when combined with a nurtured therapeutic connection and a sense of safety that people are able to go deeper into the healing process. Ketamine is treated like a medicine in isolation at IV ketamine clinics, which follow a strictly biomedical approach to its use. There is no additional therapy added on top of ketamine, and the hallucinogenic effects of ketamine are not considered in the healing process. As a result, when combined with our technique, we find that the need for maintenance doses is significantly reduced.

The Process

Our treatment programs have the option to be booked as guided one-on-one experiences or as monotherapy sessions followed by an assessment from one of our physcians.

Regardless of whether you opt for our one-on-one or single experiences, we are confident you will join our many clients who share amazing success stories with our psychadelic-enhanced therapy programs.


The first step in Psychedlic Enhanced Psychotherapy is the intial consultation. This includes being assessed by a physcian and a clinical pscyhologist in order to determine your suitability to undergo ketamine-enhanced psychotherapy.


We have two different types of treatments. Monotherapy and assisted-therapy, all based on a Ketamine capsule. The effects are felt about 30 minutes after, and within 2 hours of taking the medicine, cognition is resorted to normal. Through assisted therapy, you and your therapist work together towards your desired outcome.


You can expect to feel positive, uplifting effects on the first day of treatment. Antidepressant effects are common and as a result, our treatment is effective in eliminating suicidal ideations. Long-term, positive change occurs when you are committed to your healing practice and journey.
