What Is Ketamine Therapy?
Ketamine is approved for use in hospitals and other medical settings as an anesthetic. It is safe to use in a controlled, medical practice by a trained practitioner. Many people suffering from mental health conditions have tried many therapies with little to no relief from their suffering.
Ketamine therapy offers new hope to those whose lives have been shattered by ongoing mental health conditions as well as those in acute situations where the impact of trauma can be life-altering. Ketamine has been shown to be both effective for chronic mental health issues and as a crisis intervention.
Our Clients Say
After having multiple OCD crises and not being able to function regularly, I was desperate to try anything to feel better again. Jeff recommended that I receive a series of ketamine infusions, which are shown to quiet and suppress obsessions and compulsions associated with OCD. I was skeptical at first, because I had never received treatment like this before, and I was worried it would make me feel something different other than what I was used to. I have absolutely no regrets with my decision to receive this treatment. The ketamine infusions helped tremendously. I was able to quiet my mind more than usual and suppress most of my OCD thoughts. The infusions helped me relax. While this is not a permanent solution, the infusions aided in making me feel better, so I could focus on my necessary daily tasks and start working on more important things, such as therapy. I was in a pretty dark place before the infusions and I strongly recommend this form of treatment. I am extremely thankful that Jeff recommended this advanced form of treatment for me.
