Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy in NJ

Online and In-Home Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy is accessible,  affordable and available to New Jersey residents. We offer Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) for NJ residents via tele-therapy (virtual therapy) and optional, in-home therapy. Ketamine therapy can help break the persistent cycles of anxiety, OCD, treatment resistant depression, and PTSD.


In combination with psychotherapy, KAP enables you to tap into altered states of consciousness and harness the biological benefits of psychedelic medicines. Not only does online KAP alleviate the stress of traveling to busy clinics, but also allows for us to offer treatment at less than half the cost of traditional in-person ketamine treatment 

Why Choose MbD For
Online or In-Home Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy

For many, talk therapy has served well, however, there are times when talk therapy falls short. That’s where Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy comes into play. It’s important to recognize that although psychedelic experiences can amplify your consciousness, these experiences could potentially escalate psychological pain without the right support. Therefore, adequate preparation and post-experience integration, facilitated by trained therapists, are crucial to creating a healing psychedelic journey. Consequently, research has shown that clients who participate in psychotherapy along with KAP see more sustained progress in their treatment than those who do not have therapy supports.

What Makes MBD Services unique?

It’s important to validate that this therapy approach can feel intimidating to many of us. That’s why we offer 3 sessions before a dosing session, as well as in-home ketamine therapy for your dosing session. Research shows that clients who receive therapy supports from a licensed professional have greater, more sustained benefits from he effects of Ketamine than those who do not have therapy supports. That being said, we want to ensure the most comfortable and effective care for our clients, which is why we offer in-home ketamine assisted therapy dosing sessions with our therapists from Mind by Design.

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy has shown considerable promise in reducing symptoms of OCD. Studies have explored the use of KAP as a treatment for OCD. For instance, a study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders in 2016 found that KAP was effective in reducing symptoms of OCD in individuals with treatment-resistant OCD. 


In particular, Ketamine assisted psychotherapy has been known for the positive results seen in the treatment of PTSD and depression. Because of these positive results, studies continue to expand. What’s more is the numerous studies that have shown a rapid reduction in depressive symptoms, often noticeable within hours of the initial treatment session. Additionally, a 2018 study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research found that KAP was effective in reducing symptoms of depression in individuals with treatment-resistant depression. Moreover, out of the 99 participants who underwent a series of KAP sessions, an impressive 70% reported experiencing a significant reduction in depressive symptoms within just 24 hours of the first session. 

Anxiety & KAP

In addition to efficacy in treatment for OCD and PTSD, ketamine assisted psychotherapy has demonstrated promising results in reducing symptoms of anxiety, particularly in individuals with treatment-resistant anxiety disorders, often evident within hours of the initial session.
