The autopsy report of Matthew Perry revealed that the actor passed away due to the acute effects of ketamine. The report also listed drowning, coronary artery disease, and buprenorphine effects (a medication used to treat opioid use disorder) as contributing factors that led to his death.

The report revealed that the actor was reportedly clean for 19 months and had undergone ketamine infusion therapy. It revealed that his last therapy session was just one and a half weeks before his death. The medical examiner mentioned that the ketamine found in the actor’s body could not be attributed to therapy. He said, “The ketamine in his system at death could not be from that infusion therapy, since ketamine's half-life is 3 to 4 hours or less.” His death was determined to be accidental.
