Klarisana Denver is a radically different healthcare organization.

We reject the dominant paradigm of treatments that just don’t work. We reject the paradigm that says that opioids are the best way to treat chronic pain…we reject the paradigm that depression and PTSD have to be treated with medications that numb the senses and inhibit a person’s ability to experience joy and compassion. We embrace the concept that effective pain management can be achieved without putting patients at risk. We embrace the concept that guiding someone through an altered state of consciousness is not a side effect but rather the key to unlocking a transformational experience.

Severe Depression

Ketamine is proven to break the cycle of treatment-resistant depression in over 70% of patients


Ketamine can reframe the cognitive paradigm of those who suffer with post-traumatic stress


Many patients find that the dissociative experience of ketamine can disrupt the false narrative of anxiety

Chronic Pain

Ketamine can derail the disruptive feedback loop of chronic pain and Central Sensitization

At Klarisana Denver we are committed to making Ketamine treatment accessible to the largest number of patients possible

Being one of the pioneers in the field of ketamine treatment does not come without certain challenges. Given that the use of ketamine for mental health conditions and chronic pain is considered “off label” by the FDA, many third-party payers have been hesitant to cover ketamine despite the fact that it is supported by almost two decades of medical research. Please review our financial information below and do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

Important Factors to Consider

The length of infusions at Klarisana.

Our mental health infusion are 60 minutes long instead of the arbitrary 40 minutes of the “NIH protocol.” We feel that the time spent in a “non-ordinary state of consciousness is vital to the success of ketamine. Consequently, we have found that 60 minutes gives patients the ideal time to explore this space without it being too overwhelming.

Our thoughts on the experiential aspect of ketamine.

At Klarisana we believe that the “experiential” aspect of ketamine is not a side effect but rather a critical component of how ketamine works. We have a very progressive and dynamic protocol for escalating the dose of ketamine on subsequent doses to optimize this unique mental space. This requires a significant investment of time by our staff to work with you to create a customized treatment plan to make the most of your experience.

How the Klarisana experience is different

Each one-hour infusion represents a two-hour block of time in one of our clinics. During the time the pump is running we have one of our staff members assigned to you the whole time to monitor you and guide you through what can be a powerful transformative experience in a non-ordinary state of consciousness. A number of other ketamine centers save money by putting you in a room by yourself and have a single staff member watch several patients on a video camera. Worse yet, some centers place their patients in a room together. This does save them money but is very counterproductive to a patient’s healing.

What is the true cost of a ketamine infusion?

The cost of an Induction Series of ketamine infusions is far less than many comparable medical procedures. Some critics will focus on the actual cost of ketamine itself which is almost irrelevant to the price of the infusions. The more important question is not “what does ketamine cost?” but ratherwhat does ketamine do?” An equally important question to ask is “what goes into creating an infrastructure that can create a safe and effective therapeutic environment for patients who oftentimes have very significant symptoms?.” Success with ketamine does not simply involve sitting someone in a chair in the corner and infusing them with ketamine. Effective centers such as Klarisana have perfected the art of creating an environment to safely and effectively guide patients through a process of self-discovery and healing in a powerful psychedelic space. Klarisana is one of the oldest and most experienced ketamine providers in the country. We know what we are doing.

Thorough Intake Process

Klarisana has an expeditious but thorough intake process. Some centers pride themselves on getting you in a chair and infusing you the same day you call them. Ketamine therapy is NOT the same as going to a spa for a massage or mud mask. Infusing a patient the same day he or she calls is reckless and not in patients’ best interest. Ketamine is a safe but powerful medication that creates a powerful psychological response. It is critical that patients receive an appropriate intake screening as ketamine is definitely NOT appropriate for everyone.

We Don’t Play Games

Some ketamine centers offer proprietary blends of ketamine and make completely unfounded claims of superiority for their special concoctions. A proprietary blend where the components are a secret flies in the face of evidence based medicine. In the practice of medicine, it is critical that practitioners are very transparent with their treatments so that others in the medical community can scrutinize the protocols. The practice of medicine is largely based on the premise of the local medical community policing itself. If a clinic will not share what its protocols are and will not present any peer-reviewed medical literature to support their protocols this is concerning. At Klarisana we are very open about our treatment protocols and base them on published medical evidence. Proprietary blends are fine for snow cones and smoothies but have no place in modern medical practice.
