Understand The Treatment Process
IV Ketamine Infusions are safe, rapid, and effective. For some people, they can provide rapid relief of symptoms within hours. Ketamine infusions are administered intravenously through an IV in our comfortable outpatient setting. Unlike traditional medications that often produce side effects such as weight gain or sexual dysfunction, low dose IV ketamine treatment results in no known long-term side effects.
