The Roots To Thrive-Ketamine Assisted Therapy program is making big differences in people’s lives.  In partnership with Vancouver Island University and Vancouver Island Health Authority, the program assists those with treatment resistant depression and/or PTSD with impressive results in 12 weeks.

Our first 12-week cohort launched in October, 2020 and are already reporting significant positive shifts with their chronic mental health challenges.   As we learn collectively—in relationship—to see ourselves through a different lens, we let go of patterns that no longer serve us.  In so doing, our distress settles and we become resilient.  We reclaim the sense of wholeness that is our birthright.

Not all applicants to the program can afford the cost to participate in our program. We operate on a cost recovery model, passing any profit we have onto patients in the form of sponsorship.

We invite you to make a real difference in someone’s life.

Your donation large or small will assist the funding of the next group of patients.

We are currently at 23% of our goal of raising $150,000 by January 15, 2021. With $150,000 we will have a cohort of 28 patients participate in our program, all suffering from PTSD, treatment resistant depression, addiction(s) and/or anxiety.


Thank you for your support and thanking you for sharing this with your friends and family who may also want to support the Roots to Thrive program.
