As Featured In
Field Trip Health is a new kind of mental wellness company. We offer a deeply human experience which combines the science of psychedelic medicine with personal psychotherapy and wellness practices. Our doctors and therapists are disrupting the mental health landscape and redefining the way we approach depression and mental health issues.
The Field Trip State of Mind
Our vision is to create a world where people are empowered to rediscover the wonder of life and acquire tools for creating a lasting, profound, and positive mindset. We want to help our clients become free to think more clearly and feel more intensely.
Why Field Trip?
We take a different approach to mental wellness. We meet you where you are, not where you are supposed to be. We seek to help heal treatment-resistant mental health challenges by taking our clients through a unique, personal, and profound psychological journey, enhanced by psychedelic medicine, that helps forge new patterns of thinking.
Our team of physicians and therapists works closely with you to develop a tailored treatment plan that works best for your individual needs.
Our experienced therapists will be your guide and your support as you go through your treatment process.
Study after study is showing that an integrated approach to psychotherapy aided by psychedelic medicines can be a highly effective approach to mental health care.
A New Type of Medicine
We don’t treat patients, we help people. Field Trip’s protocol blends mindfulness and self-care, ketamine enhanced psychotherapy, and a series of integration sessions with our professional team of mental wellness professionals. The efficacy and safety of this holistic approach is supported by studies and has shown significant treatment success in recent years.
The Field Trip Program
Join us in our clinic and meet our team of psychiatrists and therapists. We want to learn more about you. Our physicians will make sure you are the right fit for ketamine enhanced psychotherapy and tailor a treatment plan just for you.
Once our psychiatrists and psychologists have developed an evidence-based treatment plan for you, you will be asked to work through some exercises designed to set intentions and optimize your experience and outcomes.
Our clinical team will guide you through a series of ketamine enhanced therapy sessions over several weeks. Empowered by the profound transpersonal experience of the ketamine session, you will begin working directly with our team to reframe negative thought patterns and begin the process of breaking old habits.
Following the ketamine sessions, you will meet regularly in our clinic with your psychotherapy team to process your experience and develop a behaviour-focused action plan tailored just for you. You will work with meditation and mindfulness tools to deepen self-awareness and conduct additional exercises at home.
Your treatment with Field Trip is the start of a journey, not the end. Continue building your mental wellness following the completion of your in-clinic treatment. Remain in touch with the therapy team using our virtual care platform in the weeks and months following your treatment. Now that you are part of our family, we will continue following your progress using evidence-based digital scales and measures.
