TORONTO, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Field Trip Health Ltd. (NASDAQ: FTRP, TSX: FTRP) ("Field Trip"), a leader in the development and delivery of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy with 12 locations across North America and Europe, and Nue Life Health (‘Nue Life’), a leader in mental wellness telehealth and at-home ketamine treatments, announced today the launch of Field Trip at Home™ Powered by Nue Life, which provides ketamine treatments from the comfort of a person’s home. Through this arrangement, Field Trip now offers increased accessibility and convenience for those interested in pursuing the powerful treatment outcomes of ketamine therapy outside of a clinic setting through Nue Life’s at-home and telehealth offerings.
Field Trip at Home™ Powered by Nue Life is an advanced wellness platform for personalized, at-home psychedelic care that has the potential to revolutionize the way people approach obtaining mental health treatment. By allowing patients to tap into Nue Life’s available ketamine treatments, interactive companion app, and virtual aftercare programs, the platform provides an alternative to in-clinic care for those seeking treatment but who are unable to travel to one of Field Trip’s existing 12 locations. The collaboration marks the coming together of two like-minded companies in the psychedelics-as-therapeutics space to create a unique mental health solution that increases access beyond in-clinic care.
“In late April we announced that Field Trip’s clinics and technology division is ready to evolve into its own independent, standalone company. As part of that spinout, our name is changing from Field Trip Health to Field Trip Health & Wellness, which is in recognition of our promise to expand access to more people who can benefit from these powerful therapies”, said Ronan Levy, Field Trip’s Executive Chairman and the proposed CEO for Field Trip Health & Wellness Ltd. “Launching Field Trip at Home™ Powered by Nue Life is the first step in delivering on that promise. We are thrilled to be working with such an established leader in at-home ketamine therapy and we are excited to leverage the power of telehealth to reach a wider patient population and meet people where they are, both physically and emotionally.”
“As a Public Benefits Corporation, Nue Life is focused on bringing these life-improving therapies to a diverse patient population. By collaborating with Field Trip, the two most recognized brands in the psychedelics-as-therapeutics space are working hand-in-hand to improve access to ketamine therapy” said Juan Pablo Cappello, co-founder and CEO of Nue Life. “We are all one community trying to reduce human suffering and elevate humanity. We all succeed when each of us succeeds in an ethical way. Field Trip is an ethical, mission-aligned company, and we are proud to collaborate with them to support healing regardless of where a patient comes from.”
Field Trip is at the forefront of the renaissance in psychedelic medicine, conducting advanced research to develop new evidence-based psychedelics treatments. Many people who complete Field Trip’s ketamine-assisted therapy programs have shown significant improvements in depression and anxiety, lasting for 120 days. Field Trip currently has locations operating in eight major U.S. cities, making it the largest provider of psychedelic-assisted therapies in North America. Nue Life has delivered over 40,000 at-home ketamine experiences to patients in New York, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington. Field Trip At Home™ Powered by Nue Life will be available in all of those areas with rapid expansion to follow throughout 2022. Learn more about the collaboration at www.fieldtriphealth.com/at-home.
