In Augmented Psychotherapy, the effectiveness of psychotherapy is enhanced with altered states of consciousness. These are evoked with ketamine or with non-pharmacological methods, such as breathwork or stroboscopic lights. In this treatment concept psychotherapy and medications are not separate from each other, but combine to reach a greater effectiveness than either could alone. Unlike in classic drug therapy for psychological disorders, Augmented Psychotherapy does not involve chronic drug administration. Instead, it specifically incorporates ketamine administration and the use of non-pharmacological methods for inducing altered states of consciousness into therapy. Ketamine is an established medication for the treatment of depression and can already show rapid antidepressant effects the day after administration.
