Which mental health concerns can ketamine therapy treat?

- Severe or Chronic Depression
- Bipolar Depression
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Post-Partum Depression (PPD)
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
How can ketamine therapy improve mental health?
Depression, anxiety, and severe or chronic stress can damage connections in the brain that may be responsible for emotional regulation, memory, and learning. Ketamine is able to rapidly repair this damage and improve mood and functioning.
What results can be expected from ketamine therapy?
Ketamine therapy may provide rapid relief of symptoms associated with depression, anxiety and PTSD and more. Ketamine has been known to begin treating symptoms within hours after the IV infusion solution has been administered. Response is very individual and while some people start to show response within a few hours, some people require more infusions to feel the positive effects of ketamine.
How many ketamine therapy sessions will I need?
We recommend an initial series of 6 treatments spaced over a period of 2-3 weeks. For people who have shown a positive response to ketamine, many find that periodic “maintenance” treatments help them maintain a positive mood. Our team will create a ketamine therapy treatment plan to best accommodate your needs.
Prescriptions medications and psychotherapy may not be right for everyone. Ketamine infusion therapy is a revolutionary alternative that can restore hope and put you back on the path of living the life that you want.
