Your Treatment: What to Expect at Nushama

1. Medical Assessment

Nushama patient’s medical history and medication to confirm no contraindication. Full pre-treatment testing including urine and blood tests, blood pressure, and EKG to ensure Ketamine is an appropriate treatment.

2. Psychedelic Treatment Sessions

Nushama anesthesiologists typically administer 6 treatments/infusions over a 2-4 week period, receiving up to 2 infusions per week. The treatments take place in a dimly lit environment with ambient music. Vitals and anesthesia levels are constantly monitored by Nushama doctors to ensure the highest level of safety.

3. Integration

Nushama physicians and guides work with patients with the intention of helping the patients glean insights from their experiences. While integration can also include practices like yoga, journaling, meditation, mindfulness techniques, or listening to music that was heard during the psychedelic treatment, the idea is to help individuals tap into their inner healer.

4. Follow Up

Nushama therapists work with patients to ensure the effects are long-lasting. If necessary, depending on the patient, they might require additional integration or “booster” sessions.


Before Nushama, my emotional state was bad. I was diagnosed with stage-three colon cancer during the pandemic. Being in a cancer hospital, surrounded by terminally ill people was tough and I saw someone die. I left the experience with depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Medications were not working and I got really scared. Dr. Radowitz recommended I try a ketamine infusion. I had nothing to lose—I came out of cancer, which I thought would take my life, but I was still fighting for it because of my mental health. Nushama’s treatment helped me get to a point where I was in control of my depression (vs. my depression controlling me). It gave me the strength for inner work—I felt I had the power to move forward. With integration and therapy, I do work independently to make changes and get to a better place, which is what happened. I was able to get off my PTSD medications, and I’m working with my psychiatrist to taper off my anti-depressants as well! The treatments allow you to go deep into yourself—you experience a higher self behind the layers of who you are. This self is deeply wise, and you feel so much love.

I have always had depressive tendencies since I was a kid and took my first round of antidepressants at 13. But, when my mother passed away from a horrible disease that took her within a few months, I went down into a dark abyss which I had been in for 11 years.

After a month of ketamine treatments, I made more progress than in the past decade. It helped me remove some of my blocks and allowed me to start caring for myself again. I was able to process emotions and thoughts I have been repressing because I was too afraid to feel more pain.

Everyone at Nushama played a part in creating a supportive and loving environment whilst I navigated the depths of who I am and what I have been doing (or not doing) for over a decade. I know I still have a long journey in front of me, but for the first time in a long time, it doesn’t feel impossible. Light is now shining into the abyss and I can finally start living again.

I would highly recommend Nushama and its program. My advice is that it is very important to understand that psychedelics are meant to assist and deepen- not replace – other therapies. By guiding us to our own healing wisdom, they open us to a range of healing practices. For me it was a gentle, and soothing experience; but for those who have trauma in their background, it is essential to make sure you have a relationship with a trauma-informed therapist to work through difficult feelings or experiences that come up.

    My Experience with Nushama was incredible. I didn’t really know what I would get out of it or what to expect, but I 100% recommend it now. The staff were incredibly kind, caring, and attentive and always made me feel welcome and safe.

    Nushama stood out to me because of the integration coaches, which aren’t offered by other clinics. The coaching was instrumental in the changes I discovered, reinforced, and internalized during my journeys. I cried a bunch, learned a lot about myself, and feel that I am now moving on a new, happier, and more self-fulfilling path.

    Very grateful for the care, careful and well structured set and setting, and the experience itself. First rate place. Only comment: I found a slight mismatch between the ketamine journeys themselves and the structure before and after (intention setting and integration) when I was meeting with the MSWs. Several were very attuned but another seemed to find it hard to connect authentically. And they didn’t always seem to get the fact that this happens on a neurological rather than psychological level. The conversations with Dr Radowitz were terrific though. Genuinely meeting me where I was and helping me think (and feel) through the ketamine experience. If I had been able to meet with him every time I went (he was on vacation for several times) I would have found the whole experience even more satisfying.

    Had 6 sessions to help with depression and it verty much did. But, I went back fior a booster and had an awful experience. The ketamine didnt kick in right away and I had to call for assitance. NOTE: they are not in the room nor monitoring you so it’s up to you to call out for help. At some point the ketamine hit and hit way too hard. I had an aweful trip in which I thought I was bleeding to death. I do not blame Nushama for the bad trip, but, they completley abandoned me. After the bad trip both Dr. Radowitz and the Integrator were nowhere to be found. Only the medical assistant provided some comfort. I was tramatized by this experience and felt completly let down. Nushama shoukld realize that they are administering very strong drugs that leave people vulnerable. I complained via a questionnaire and no one bothered to deal with me. But, they did take down my bad google review. Nushama, you let me down and I will keep posting to let the world know.

    Working with Barra was a life-changing experience. She truly saw me. She helped reveal insights into myself and my life that I don’t believe I could have realized with traditional therapy. Everyone at Nushama is great but Barra is really one of one. I feel extremely fortunate to have had her as an integrator!

    It was a very meaningful and healing experience. All the staff was professional and very caring. I felt at ease and I was able to go deep in my personal work. It helped me to find grounding after a prolonged and intese period of fear. Highly recommended!

    Ketamine offered me a open door to a new life. A new way of thinking and being. A new me. I saw myself and the world around me as loving, kind, pure, and beautiful. I was overflowing with gratitude and joy to be HERE. When I walked through that open door, I looked back at my old self and thought, “I don’t ever want to go back there.” In more ways than one, I felt a sense of rebirth and a new beginning. Once I crossed over, there was only one way path to take, and that path was forward. I’m so grateful for the work Nushama does every single day by truly healing people at the root cause. The only thing asked of us is to come with an open mind and heart.

    The biggest obstacle I had to overcome was deciding to reach out to the Nushama team in the first place. After the initial conversation I knew I had made the right choice. My questions were addressed clearly and logically.

    The entire team is so caring and empathetic. What I have since learned is how Nushama’s comprehensive approach & integration enhanced my journeys and provided amazing results.

    My journeys (ketamine infusions) have been profound. Revisiting beliefs and questioning negative characteristics through a new lens have helped me integrate better options into my life. Each visit improved my mood, mindfulness and sense of inner peace. The effect was cumulative and stays with me. I now clearly understand “I am enough”.

    Much gratitude Nushama !!!

    I was recommended to Nushama by my husband who had recently started a series of journeys for his own needs. My life and core relationships were very good before beginning my series; a successful and fulfilling career, great marriage, good health, fun hobbies. Even so, I have suffered from anxiety and a short-fuse several times a week for many years – almost always episodic due to interactions with people. I also traditionally have lots of thoughts racing around in my head before sleep and sometimes in the middle of the night, making for imperfect sleep patterns. Nothing crippling to my daily life, but there was definitely a lot of room for improvement.

    I was a little unsure of what to expect and was actually skeptical of whether or not I would get anything out of the experience, but I am very open minded, so figured “why not?”. From the very first journey I was quite surprised at how impactful the experience has been. I set reasonable intentions before each journey and worked with Nushama’s great counselors before and after each one to help integrate, or unpack, my journey. I then stayed very mindful of the journeys between visits, observing how I process and interact with the world around me.

    I have now completed my planned set of 6 journeys and will soon be going back for a first booster. This has really significantly changed my life for the better. I sleep really well at night and don’t get rattled by people and situations. The same situations are still there; I just somehow understand more about the dynamics of what’s going on around me and how I am responsible for my own response to them. This makes it much easier to move through my life and enjoy it fully. I even think I am able to be there emotionally more for others and have more empathy as well.

    Bottom line … Nushama as a team and setting is wonderful. Their program, which includes figuring out the proper dosages for me, counseling for integration and meditation, providing a comfortable environment and great audio playlists is executed extremely well. Thank you to everyone there!
