Journey Clinical’s robust safety policies and procedures fortify our commitment to your well-being during Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP). Here’s an overview of the safety measures in place:

  1. Patient-Centered Collaborative Care Model:

Journey Clinical follows a collaborative care model where licensed psychotherapists work hand-in-hand with their in-house medical team. This ensures a holistic approach to patient care during KAP.

  1. Rigorous Patient Eligibility and Monitoring:

Journey Clinical’s medical team is responsible for determining patient eligibility, providing ketamine prescriptions, and continuous outcome monitoring. Their 24/7 on-call medical team, coupled with an emergency monitoring system, ensures swift support for any adverse effects.

  1. Trained and Licensed KAP Providers:

All Journey Clinical KAP providers, licensed mental health professionals, undergo rigorous training in Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy. They participate in regular medical team meetings, protocol reviews, and additional training sessions to ensure the highest quality of care.

  1. Comprehensive Medical Intake:

Patients undergo a thorough 1-hour medical intake consultation covering medical and psychiatric history. The risk/benefit framework of ketamine is explained, potential contraindications are reviewed, and medical clearances are sought when necessary.

  1. Informed Consent and Off-Label Prescription:

Patients sign a comprehensive informed consent form, acknowledging that ketamine is prescribed off-label. The form provides insights into potential risks and side effects.

  1. Controlled Dosage and Self-Administration:

Eligible patients receive oral ketamine, shipped to their homes. Initial doses are carefully administered to determine the appropriate dosage. Additional prescriptions require follow-up consultations. Patients are coached to self-administer during designated KAP sessions.

  1. In-Person and Remote Protocols:

Journey Clinical employs protocols for in-person and remote KAP sessions. Patients self-administer ketamine in the presence of a licensed mental health professional or under the guidance of a licensed mental health professional with a chaperone.

  1. Monitoring Vital Signs:

Patients self-administer their vitals before taking ketamine during dosing sessions. These readings are logged in Journey Clinical’s HIPAA-compliant portal and monitored by the medical team for safety and compliance.
