A combination with outpatient psychotherapy can be carried out if Augmented Psychotherapy can thereby be meaningfully embedded in the longer-term therapy process. Thus, by working with altered states of consciousness, Augmented Psychotherapy can deepen long-term positive therapy processes and add a new dynamic to psychotherapy.  Also, the direct antidepressant effect of ketamine can be very beneficial for long-term therapeutic work, as it allows psychotherapy with less symptom burden. We see the combination of Augmented Psychotherapy as a specific short-term therapy over about 9 weeks in combination with outpatient longer-term treatment as highly useful. Here we strive for a transparent and constructive exchange between the treatment providers in the interest of the patients. In most cases, a pause of the outpatient psychotherapy for the duration of the augmented psychotherapy is appropriate.
