Ketamine Enhanced Therapy (KET) is rapidly emerging as an intervention for depression and other psychological distress. Ketamine is not a psychedelic, but it does have the potential to access expanded states of consciousness.

Integration occurs after your expanded state of consciousness or inner, journey. This is a process between you and your therapist that helps you deepen your experiences and maximize outcomes to you in your life. These outcomes may show in your career, relationships, spirituality, behavioral patterns, future aspirations, and so on.
You will likely have insights and experiences that you will bring back from your inner journey. The Integration work helps you make connections in your present life. In time, your life transforms into one that you want and intentionally create for yourself. If you adopt some of the recommendations that will be made to you, then the Integration process can continue for a long time.
The future you can anticipate is the future you create for yourself. Integration with your therapist can accelerate your healing and recovery
