MINDCURE Develops Proprietary Ketamine-Enhanced Psychotherapy Protocols for Treatment of Pain and Depression
MINDCURE will distribute these protocols to therapists through iSTRYM, its digital therapeutics platform. This milestone in protocol development unlocks the company’s protocol distribution platform in time for iSTRYM’s clinical MVP launch in Q3 2021.
Mind Cure Health Inc. (CNSX: MCUR) (OTCMKTS: MCURF), a leader in advanced proprietary technology and research for psychedelics, is pleased to announce it has developed two proprietary ketamine-enhanced protocols for psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy – one for treating pain and another for treating depression.
These proprietary protocols were developed for MINDCURE by Dr. Mitch Earleywine, Professor of Psychology at the University at Albany, SUNY, and Co-Founder at Wisdom In Nature Consulting Group. Dr. Earleywine has over 250 papers published in peer-reviewed journals that address psychedelic-assisted treatments, substance abuse, depression, health, and personality. He is also the co-developer of Integrative Ketamine-Enhanced Psychotherapy for affective, trauma and stressor-related disorders.
“We have taken the best of the validated treatments for common clinical conditions and made them simpler and easier to implement by adding accessible technology,” said Dr. Earleywine.
I am proud to have reached this psychedelic-assisted drug protocol milestone with our team and respected collaborator, Dr. Earleywine. Part of our strategic model is to be the distribution network of the psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy industry, enabling scalable treatment by using iSTRYM’s science-backed, evidence-based protocols and AI data systems. Delivering on this milestone – having ketamine-enhanced psychotherapy protocols available through our digital therapeutics platform – confirms our end-to-end care model. For clinics, this means access to a broad menu of services. For psychedelic companies, we offer partnership opportunities to distribute their protocols. We’re moving forward with enthusiasm and remain on schedule to launch iSTRYM’s MVP to select clinics in Q3 of this year.Kelsey Ramsden, MINDCURE President and CEO
