The New York City Field Trip Health clinic offers low-dose ketamine therapy for a number of mood disorders. Field Trip’s team of experts combine traditional psychiatric treatments, cutting-edge psychedelic medicines, and intentionally designed spaces to assist clients in healing disorders that have been resistant to mainstream treatments. Psychedelic sessions, often lasting between 2-3 hours, are accompanied by psychotherapy integration sessions, during which a trained therapist assists clients in understanding the changes and improvements suggested by the experience. Field Trip NYC also offers a wide variety of online resources for those seeking further information on psychedelic medicines and treatments.
The NYC Field Trip team consists of a number of experts with specific training in psychedelic medicines and their integration into traditional psychiatric practices. Medical Director Dr. Ben Medrano brings clinical practice influenced by eastern psychology, while psychotherapist Susan Brody has been interested in psychedelic medicines since “the glory days of the 1960s.” Numerous members of the team focus not only on medication, but also mindfulness, nutrition, and collaboration to provide a holistic healing experience for each client. NYC Field Trip aims to create a personalized treatment and recovery plan for each client.
Beginning with a preparation session to establish a working relationship and set down goals, clients and their health-care providers will then move on to a psychedelic session, starting off with low doses and increasing only if as assessment calls for higher doses. Frequency of treatment programs will be dictated by the client’s circumstances. Most run approximately 3-4 weeks, but can be longer depending on the complexity of the client’s needs.
Immediately following the psychedelic session, clients will sit with a therapist and explore the experience, and will follow this up with an integration session, in which therapist and client will sort out how to utilize what has been discovered in the psychedelic session in order to facilitate healing.
Ketamine therapy, and psychedelic therapy more generally, is for those who have not seen desired benefits from mainstream medical practices, and for those seeking positive change in their lives. As such, the Field Trip NYC team will assess, based on your health history, whether or not ketamine therapy is useful and safe for your particular circumstances. Field Trip’s amalgamation of cutting-edge and traditional psychotheraputic practices offers hope to those suffering from mental health issues that are resistant to mainstream treatments. Psychedelic therapy does involve risks to those suffering from some pre-existing conditions, and may be denied on the basis of contraindications.
