What is ketamine infusion therapy?

Ketamine infusion therapy is a type of medical treatment that involves the intravenous administration of ketamine, a medication used to treat depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions. Ketamine infusion therapy is being called the "most important breakthrough in mental health treatment in decades." It is a safe, extensively studied, rapid-acting treatment. What conditions can ketamine infusion therapy treat?

Ketamine infusion therapy is used to treat depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), bipolar disorder, chronic pain, eating disorders, suicidality and other mental health conditions. What should I expect during my treatment?

During ketamine therapy at Healing Ketamine, you relax in a comfortable, reclining chair. You may want to bring something to listen to or watch to pass the time. Or, you can simply rest during the procedure.

Your specialist inserts a tiny needle into a vein in your arm and infuses ketamine into your bloodstream. Each infusion takes about 45 minutes or so, and you may start feeling better within a few hours of your first infusion. 

There’s no downtime afterward, but ketamine is an anesthetic, so plan to take the rest of the day off from work and have a friend or family member drive you home. 

How many ketamine infusions do I need?

Ketamine infusion therapy works best when given as a series of six infusion sessions over several weeks, booster infusions one month later and when needed, and psychotherapy to keep you symptom-free. Your provider personalizes each ketamine treatment to give you the best outcome and long-lasting results.
