Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy

Dr. Newes offers Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) in collaboration with Concierge Medicine and Psychiatry in Asheville. NC. Ketamine assisted psychotherapy is a groundbreaking and effective treatment that combines the use of the anesthetic drug ketamine with evidence based psychotherapy techniques. By carefully administering ketamine in a controlled and medically supervised setting, clients achieve a deepened state of self-awareness and insight, facilitating breakthroughs in their healing journey.  

This cutting edge therapy allows for the loosening of rigidly held defenses and softening of the nervous system so clients can see themselves in different ways and begin to re-experience consistent joy and well-being. Promising results have been seen in treating a range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addictive patterns. Dr. Newes is also the co-founder of the Living Medicine Institute, offering training to clinicians interested in incorporating psychedelic assisted psychotherapy into their practices and of the Psychedelic Provider Network.
