Benefits of Ketamine Treatment
- Improve Mental Wellness
- Near Instant Relief
- Reconnect and Rewire the Brain
- Ideal for treatment-resistant symptoms
- Different from traditional treatments and medications
Ketamine was first utilized as an anesthetic on the battlefields and later approved by the FDA in 1970. Years after its discovery, Ketamine was abused widely as a street drug known as “special k.” Ketamine has since moved from battlefields and street abuse into clinical studies and medical use. Emergency rooms popularly use this synthetic drug as an anesthetic for adults and children as Ketamine does not affect a person’s respiratory system. Ketamine is also used in veterinary medicine as an animal tranquilizer.
In 2019 Ketamine was again approved by the FDA for treatment of depression. Clinical studies across the nation are making great efforts to understand more about Ketamine and how it works. Studies and research show Ketamine to be beneficial in treating depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, chronic pain, and more.
How Ketamine Works
Traditional medications such as SSRIs, opioids, and more, often have short-term effects dependent on continuous use. More often than not, these medications merely dull symptoms and may even have no positive effect. Ketamine targets the cause of mental illness: the brain. Yale research labs show Ketamine to trigger glutamate production. Glutamate is a powerful and complex process that creates new neural connections. In ideal conditions, glutamate plays an important role in memory and learning.
Chief psychiatrist of Yale Medicine, Dr. John Krystal, describes the difference between Ketamine and other medications in these words: “with most medications, like Valium, the anti-anxiety effect you get only lasts when it is in your system. When the Valium goes away, you can get rebound anxiety…when you take Ketamine, it triggers reactions in your cortex that enable brain connections to regrow. ‘It’s the reaction to Ketamine, not the presence of Ketamine in the body that constitutes its effects.”
How Concierge Ketamine Treatment Service Works
The at-home ketamine treatment experience starts with a free 30-minute consultation with a provider. During this meeting, our providers at Ketamine Therapy at Therapeutic Alternatives will get to know you so that they can create a tailored treatment plan just for you. Our providers are ketamine experts and will also be able to address any concerns you may have. Your tailored experience will include a playlist of your favorite music and specific measures to ensure your experience will be safe and comfortable.
Ketamine can provide relief for many mental and physical illnesses. Some of these include:
- Chronic Pain
- Suicidal Ideation
- Bipolar Disorder
During your consultation, you will discuss your unique circumstances and what kind of relief you are looking for. Our licensed professional will be able to cater your ketamine concierge treatment to your specific needs.
Ketamine is administered via intramuscular injections, IV infusion, and/or lozenges over 40-60 minutes. A licensed social worker will help you navigate through this one-on-one treatment. Ketamine has almost immediate effects, and although patients may experience an altered state of mind, you will maintain consciousness and be able to speak. Typically a series of 6 sessions is recommended for full treatment. Lozenge Ketamine treatment is also available.
Ketamine treatments in Clinical Studies
Ketamine therapy treatments have drawn a lot of attention from scientists and researchers. Ketamine continues to show great promise in improving mental health conditions. These are just a few examples of ketamine in clinical studies for the treatment of various mental illnesses.
Depression: Ketamine is being called “the biggest breakthrough in depression in over 60 years” by researchers. Dr. John Krystal of Yale University states, “when you take Ketamine, it triggers reactions in your cortex that enable brain connections to regrow.” This shows Ketamine works differently from traditional SSRIs, such as Valium or Prozac (typically prescribed for anxiety and depression). SSRIs often take weeks to affect symptoms of depression and anxiety. Sometimes there is no effect at all. However, in just one treatment, Ketamine improves symptoms of depression almost instantly.
PTSD: The Icahn School of Medicine recently completed a trial testing Ketamine for PTSD. In this study, 40 patients with PTSD (all with varying trauma histories) were given one Ketamine infusion. Results show Ketamine reduced symptoms of PTSD significantly and quickly within 24 hours. Dr. Prakash Masand, CEO, and chairman of COPE (Centers of Psychiatric Excellence), states, “An innovative treatment for PTSD cases that don’t respond well to traditional treatments is Ketamine IV infusions. The benefits of Ketamine are substantial and obtained within just one day of treatment.” He went on to say that “Ketamine has been studied and shown [to be] effective with an array of anxiety disorders, including SAD, general anxiety disorder (GAD), and PTSD.”
OCD: Dr. Carolyn Rodriguez of Stanford University has completed various trials of Ketamine treatment for OCD. Dr. Rodriguez states, “What most excites me about Ketamine is that it works differently than traditional antidepressants…Using Ketamine, we hope to understand the neurobiology that could lead to safe, fast-acting treatments”. A patient from a trial done in 2012 said about his Ketamine treatment for OCD; “I felt like, for the first time, I was able to function like a regular person.” Many patients reported a loss of compulsion mid-way through just one infusion in a trial done in 2013. Patients also reported improved symptoms throughout the week.
