We provide it as a mental health treatment option for only those clients who would benefit from its short-term and lasting effects.
During treatment, Ketamine is administered as an intravenous infusion at a much lower dose than given for anesthesia. Clients who experience relief from depressive symptoms within one to three ketamine treatments will most likely extend these positive and regenerative effects with additional ketamine treatments. While every plan is individualized, clients typically receive 6 doses over a 2-3 week period.
Our Ketamine program is designed to be completed within 7-8 weeks. Successive sessions, as part of an on-going mental health plan, may help prolong the effectiveness of ketamine treatment. This option is available on a case-by-case basis.
