Ketamine Personal Retreats

Ketamine Therapy Personal Retreats 

Helping individuals thrive and reclaim their joy utilizing psychedelic therapy. 

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy retreats are an immersive and restorative experience, located at Driftless Integrative Psychiatry, along the Mississippi River in Lansing, Iowa.


 

Ketamine assisted therapy retreats at Driftless Integrative Psychiatry are for you if:

  • You've looked into traveling to another country for a psychedelic retreat but international travel is overwhelming

  • You've tried other medications like SSRIs and are looking for alternatives that don't cause the side effects and actually work

  • You're committed to your healing journey and looking to make big shifts in your life

  • You'd rather invest in your mental health for improved wellbeing than buy more material things you don't need

  • You're interested in working and partnering with a psychiatrist for personalized, expert care rather than be just a number at a big box clinic

  • You don't want to deal with traffic, overstimulation, or crowded cities on your retreat

  • You're looking to do deep inner work and enhance creativity in a safe, supportive environment

  • You're introverted and prefer to explore psychedelic therapy in a one-to-one setting rather than a group

  • You're open-minded and have read about the benefits of psychedelic medicine

How We Are Different from  Ketamine Clinics

Quality over Quantity: 

We intentionally practice on a small-scale so we can provide individualized, high quality care to our patients at Driftless Integrative Psychiatry.  We take time to get to know you as a person and work together.  We space out appointments adequately so you will not feel rushed.  You will work side-by-side with Dr. Burger throughout your experience.  We are not a high volume clinic and typically offer ketamine sessions no more than 3 times per week.  Our retreat packages include additional tools and high quality additions that enhance your experience.

Physician on-site: 

Dr. Erica Burger is the clinic's founder and medical director at Driftless Integrative  Psychiatry.  She is the sole practitioner and is present throughout your ketamine experience.  While medical emergencies are a very rare outcome of ketamine, we stand firmly for safety first by having a physician on-site, and we do not condone the use of ketamine outside a medical office setting.

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy:

We are skilled in utilizing ketamine in a psychotherapeutic context for maximum sustained benefit of ketamine.  Skilled mental health support is part of your entire ketamine experience.  We consider ketamine a tool that can help open the door to further psychological work and we provide additional integration tools.  Because Dr. Burger provides both the medical and therapy aspects, she is able to fine-tune and customize dosing and the style of ketamine work for you. 

Whole Person Integrative Psychiatry:

We don't consider ourselves a ketamine clinic but value having it as a tool for our patients - in the context of other healing modalities.  We have expertise in integrative psychiatry and offer  psychotherapy, somatic therapy (ART), light osteopathic manipulation, medications, supplements, botanicals, mind-body skills, nutritional psychiatry, and lifestyle support. You will be evaluated from this holistic perspective and provided non-medication recommendations to help you utilize complementary strategies to ketamine.
