Why Psychedelics are Right for you

High-Performance has a Human Cost

For individuals in high-stakes, time-critical professions, the clock is always ticking and failure is never an option. The pressure is relentless. Whether you know it or not, it follows you home.

It’s there when you eat.

When you sleep.

Whenever you breathe.

That Cost is Devastating

And it affects even the most resilient among us. Continuous exposure to physical danger and trauma can ravage the strongest mind and body, leading to chronic pain, fatigue, burnout, PTSD, anxiety, depression and suicidal ideation.

Common PTSD Stressors

  • Exposure to Death, Violence or Serious Injury
  • Natural Disasters
  • Other extreme or life-threatening events

Society doesn't always catch you when you fall

Existing treatments often fail. Although traditional pharmaceuticals and antidepressants can help some individuals, for many they are not enough.

Return. Reset. Relaunch.

Trauma has a way of robbing life of meaning. Home doesn’t feel like home and work doesn’t seem important.

Basecamp takes a personalized, behavior-focused approach to address PTSD, treatment-resistant depression and other psychiatric disorders that are common for those in dangerous and risky professions. The treatment is based on your personal values to help you reconnect with yourself and your purpose.

Psychedelic-enhanced Psychotherapy

What is ketamine?

Ketamine is a dissociative anaesthetic that was first approved by the FDA 50 years ago. Used in sub-anaesthetic doses, it has demonstrated strong efficacy and safety in the treatment of psychiatric and substance use disorders.

How does ketamine work to treat depression and other mental illnesses?

Acting as an NMDA receptor antagonist, ketamine induces neuroplasticity and reduces the activity of the Default Mode Network, which is neurologically analogous to the “ego” and, when overactive, can keep the mind stuck in old thinking patterns and harmful behaviours. Ketamine can be safely administered alongside conventional antidepressant medications (i.e. SSRIs, SNRIs).

Our Process

Follow the science

Evidence shows that psychedelics, when used alongside proper psychotherapy, are incredibly effective in treating PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Everything we do is evidence-based therapy, delivered by trained psychotherapists.
