Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy of Opioid Use Disorder
June 9 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm CEST
Already in the early years of the new millennium, Prof. Evgeny Krupitsky and his team used Ketamine in the treatment of opioid addiction in pioneering clinical studies. In one of these projects, seventy detoxified opioid addicts received either a low, sub-psychedelic dose of Ketamine or a high, psychedelic dose of Ketamine, both supported by accompanying psychotherapy in a randomized trial. Prof. Kupitsky will talk about the implications and results for his groundbreaking work that will inspire other clinicians in the years to come.
