Emerging Programs

  • Access to Care $100,000—available to our practitioners who are members of KPA. See the information on this site for this unique support for patients who cannot afford fees for KAP.
  • Ketamine Library REBUILT and PUBLIC $25,000
  • The Ketamine Training Center—self-supporting
  • Ketamine Psychotherapy Associates (KPA): A Program of KRF supporting KAP and KAP Practices Internationally. Supported entirely by membership fees and continually growing in numbers. We have over 100 practitioners developing their KAP programs across the US — included in KPA is the Ketamine Data Project—the seminal source for collecting data and reporting it for KAP and growing our clinical knowledge of ketamine’s effects, problems, and outcomes.
  • The KAP Music Library—An expanding Playlist Library for Patient and Practitioner Use in Support of KAP sessions– by a group of our musicologists


As we are able to design and perform research within the legal status of ketamine—WHO/worldwide –we are in the process of developing protocols to be funded and administered under KRF’s non-profit umbrella. We are welcoming of new creative initiatives and are developing relations with collaborating researchers. Each project has its own cost center and donations to KRF may be earmarked. Studies are IRB approved and registered.

Our list of active projects includes:

  • KAP for Conscious Dying/ Conscious Living—with its own unique measure for assessing goals, feelings, and conflicts at the end of life, –the ELI. We are now coordinating the development of a five-center study with 120 Subjects–for those who have one year or less of life expectancy. This is an intensive pilot to demonstrate the benefits of KAP on preparing for death and a model for palliative care and hospice programs. It is FDA and IRB approved. $900,000 is our goal
  • The Foundation has patented the use of ketamine for Post-Partum Depression (PPD) which is novel. We are developing commercialization with an exclusive contract with PTI for which we have received equity. We are in protocol development for a multi-site PPD KAP model treatment program which we believe will demonstrate great success in benefitting new mothers without affecting breast feeding or exposing infants to medications. Our groundbreaking ketamine and lactation study has assured us of this. Anticipated project initiation in the early 2023. There Is great interest in this as a significant new treatment for women suffering with PP. We are anticipating a budget of a million dollars.
  • Indra’s Net Coalition for the treatment of trauma and PTSD is in early operation. Do visit our website and become a facilitator. Our goal is $250,000.
  • The Veterans Co-facilitator training program in coalition with Heroic Hearts moves into operation at the beginning of 2023. This is a major and unique initiative to transform the treatment of PTSD for vets using a KAP group model in a 3-month long experience to develop vets themselves to be co-facilitators for an expanded PTSD program that is facilitated by those who have military experience. As we move to Phase 2 our intention is to have this serve as a demonstration affecting positively the treatment of vets by the VA and other institutions. Goal $200,000.
  • We have redesigned our logo and websites and developing funding campaigns and public awareness of who we are and what we do.
  • We are focused on Women’s Health with a new project to demonstrate the effectiveness of ketamine for PMS and PMDD. We will be starting our Postpartum depression program and are moving towards a Menopause Protocol


All of this goes to our need for basic structure. We are a lean outfit. We build staff as projects mature and needs are delineated. As our programs grow and are activated, we are in need of new staff and the stuff of making an organization thrive. We appreciate donations that contribute to our structure.

There is much more in process, and we encourage donors to participate in our work and become familiar with what we do and who we are.

Your donations are greatly appreciated!

Hugs and love,
Phil Wolfson MD — Founder and CEO
