The Alabama Board of Examiners in Counseling has reviewed the use of Ketamine-assisted therapy by counselors. The Board is of the opinion that situations where Ketamine is advised or used by a counselor in a counseling setting without a physician present is under the authority and jurisdiction of the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners, (“ALBME”) and as such, all complaints alleging KAT by counselors will be forwarded to the ALBME for review. Should the ALBME deem the facts support a charge of the unauthorized practice of medicine, civil and/or criminal charges could be brought against the counselor. See Code of Ala. §§ 34-24-50; 34-24-51.
