Ketamine

For The Treatment of Depression

Clinically Proven Depression Treatment

The symptoms of depression can place a massive burden on a patient and their family. We are here you offer you hope for a major reduction in your depression symptoms. 

In the last 7-10 years, dozens of research studies have been published that show very promising results for the effectiveness of Ketamine infusions for treatment resistant depression (TRD). Even in these most difficult-to-treat cases, Ketamine can be successful up to 80% of the time. Ketamine is currently the only fast acting treatment proven to reduce the symptoms of even the most severe forms of depression.

 

Research has shown that a series of 6 low-dose Ketamine infusions, each lasting approximately 40 minutes, may rapidly reduce depressive symptoms and produces results that last as long as two-three months. Patients often report improved symptoms in as few as 1-2 treatments. This innovative therapy has even shown to produce results in patients that have been unresponsive to traditional depression therapy. 

The fast relief from depression that Ketamine provides, makes it an ideal treatment as a bridge therapy. This is because more traditional antidepressants can take 6-10 weeks to become effective and so Ketamine Infusions can effectively bridge this gap by providing immediate relief.

Ketamine infusions should be a part of a comprehensive treatment plan. We recommend that our infusions are part of a multidisciplinary plan that includes a mental health provider, a healthy diet, psychotherapy and plenty of physical activity.

For all patients, your overall mental health care must be directed by a primary care or mental health provider. We require that all patients schedule a history and physical exam with our Certified Nurse Practitioner prior to your first Ketamine Infusion.
