Depression / Anxiety / OCD / PTSD
Ketamine is a thoroughly tested and safe prescription medication that has been been used to treat depression and other mental health disorders. Traditionally, Ketamine is commonly used an anesthetic in hospitals and clinics. However, over the last few decades, it has also been used in the mental health as an alternative and complementary option for individuals seeking to support. When combined with therapy, a number of well reviewed studies have empirically demonstrated that Ketamine can help individuals deal with everything from anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder and other ailments that can affect our mental health and our wellbeing.
By itself Ketamine has demonstrated antidepressant qualities that can can help individuals feel substantially better within days of their treatment. Ketamine's relatively immediate effects can help individuals shorten the length of time for antidepressants to become effective. Reducing the amount of time of a depressive episode is critical with acute depression or when suicidal ideation may be present. To many individuals seeking support, Ketamine has become a life-saving alternative medicine that many other drugs or therapies can't match.
When integrated with a therapeutic process, Ketamine is quick-acting medicine that can also help individuals explore new perspectives, memories, and unconscious material which may come to surface during treatments. This allows a skilled therapist to help individuals further explore their associations and beliefs systems that armor their identity and their conditions. Ketamine doesn't change our identity, but it can help us understand and relate to it without the walls we psychologically attempt to keep up.
We work with Ketamine in the context and for the purpose of mental health healing. With a therapeutic goal in mind, we collaborate with licensed psychiatrists to design a protocol that fits your objective, budget and comfort level. Together we can decide if you would like to work directly with a therapist during your infusion for deep and immediate processing or if you would like to work with a therapist in between ketamine infusions.
