Sharon Osbourne Opens Up About Ketamine Therapy
Ketamine therapy is growing in popularity. As it does, more celebrities are opening up about their treatment experiences and how it helps their mental health. One such celebrity, Sharon Osbourne, recently opened up about her struggles with her exit from television and how Ketamine got her through the challenging times.
Sharon Osbourne, a co-host of the show “The Talk,” experienced an on-screen debate about racism. Osbourne revealed details to UK’s The Times about the emotional fallout she experienced following her dismissal from the show. She says in the interview, “I said, ‘I ain’t going out, I ain’t doing anything.’ I just couldn’t stop crying because all I was thinking about was all the things that I’ve gone through in my life, and now they’re calling me a racist; this is insanity.”
After this traumatic event, Osbourne sought professional help. She began Ketamine treatments. Ketamine is a newer treatment for mental health. It shows high promise for helping alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other mental illnesses.
For Osbourne, she describes the treatment as a “truth drug.” She explains how Ketamine therapy made it possible for her to feel secure and finally able to address the root of her problems. “If you’re a person who stuffs things [down], this drug relaxes you…You can’t bulls**t on [Ketamine]. It’s a truth drug.”, Osbourne states.
Other Celebrities Benefiting from Ketamine
Sharon Osbourne is not the only celebrating offering public praise for Ketamine. Her statement about the therapy comes after the release of the documentary, “Lamar Odom Re/Born.” This documentary follows famous NBA star Lamar Odom and his recovery after a nearly fatal overdose.
Part of Odom’s recovery included frequent Ketamine infusions. Odom tells Good Morning America, “I went to rehab and did some other things, but ketamine came into my life at the right time.”
Uses of Ketamine
Ketamine is primarily used as a sedative in emergency medicine. It has a long and complicated history in the world. However, recently, Ketamine is now gaining positive traction in the mental health field. After the FDA approval for Ketamine treating depression, many people consider this therapy to help improve their mental state.
The drug shows promising results for treating other mental health concerns and is used off-label to treat:
- General Anxiety Disorder

Even though Ketamine is a sedative, it is not like general anesthesia. Osbourne explains that during Ketamine therapy, “You’re not out completely. You can hear, you can talk.”
