At Roots Behavioral Health, people suffering from chronic mental health conditions can find relief from their symptoms through ketamine-assisted psychotherapy. The health center provides breakthrough treatments to people with depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and substance abuse disorders.
The mental health professionals at Roots Behavioral Health provide their patients with guided ketamine-assisted psychotherapy sessions designed to soften a person’s ego defense for better healing. The clinic was founded in 2016 by Dr. Brent Turnipseed and his wife, Andrea Turnipseed. Their goal was to address the dire need for affordable mental health care in Austin. Together with their staff, the Turnipseeds aspire to provide a person-centric model of behavioral therapy that focuses on whole-body health.
– Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy
During a KAP session, your psychotherapist will provide safety and guidance, helping you remain comfortable throughout the experience. Ketamine leads to a unique softening of a person’s ego defenses. And as ketamine’s primary effects subside, you and the therapist then discuss the experience and mutually work to find solutions for the areas of focus.
Afterward, your therapist encourages you to remember the experience once the height of medication has dissipated. Decreased ego defenses result in more productive therapy, where patients can recognize how they are different, and process and analyze what they have experienced on a deeper level.
Ketamine infusions, administered as part of ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, function as part of a treatment plan or as an alternative to unsuccessful treatments for those whose conventional therapies or medications have had little or no effect on mental and physical health conditions. By increasing glutamate production, and by “resetting” pain signal receptors, ketamine offers hope and health to those dealing with difficult to manage problems.
