Patients receive a much lower dose than those who use ketamine as an anesthetic, so they do not lose consciousness during treatment. The dose and rate of uptake is also much lower than that associated with ketamine abuse, which eliminates the risk of dissociation. The purpose is not to induce a high, but rather to deliver enough ketamine to the brain to create neurotransmitters and repair or rewire crucial pathways.
