Study Background
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a chronic and disabling condition.

Currently available treatments for PTSD do not work for a significant proportion of individuals with this condition, or work only partially, leaving persistent and disabling residual symptoms.

Our researchers aim to find better treatments for those suffering from PTSD through the use of Ketamine infusions and Written Exposure Therapy (WET).

Additional Information
Why is this study being done?
The purpose of the current study is to evaluate whether adding Written Exposure Therapy (WET) to a course of 6 ketamine infusions can maintain improvement in PTSD symptoms over a longer period of time, and whether these two treatments (ketamine and WET) can work better together.
Is this study for me?
You may be eligible to participate if you have PTSD and are 18-70 years old.

What will happen if I am eligible to participate in this study?
All eligible participants will receive a total of 6 ketamine infusions and 5 WET sessions; the combined treatment is administered over 3 consecutive weeks. All participants will be evaluated weekly until 12 weeks following the start of WET. During the course of the study, participants who are taking medication for psychiatric treatment will be asked not to make any changes to medication dosages, and not to start/stop any medication during this period.
Will there be compensation paid for being in this research study?
Participants will be compensated for their time and participation in the study.
Will it cost anything to participate in this study?
There is no cost to participate in this study.
