Before treatment

Continue to complete True colours daily after your assessment and throughout your treatment and follow up.

On the day of your treatment please eat breakfast before coming, but little or no lunch. Do not take benzodiazepines or alcohol the night before or on the day of your treatment as this may reduce the benefit.

Before arriving in clinic you will need to complete a care plan form in PKB. This applies before every treatment.

You should arrange for someone to escort you to your appointment and advise them that you will need to stay in the clinic with them for 1 hour after treatment.

Where this may not be possible and you attend treatment unescorted you will have to stay in the clinic for a minimum of 2 hours after treatment before getting public transport home.

Under NO circumstances are you permitted to drive away from the clinic after receiving ketamine treatment.
