We Can Provide Relief
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, depression is a mental health condition that affected roughly 19.4 million adults in the US in 2019. That’s enough people to fill New York City. Twice. Clinical depression is a prevalent and debilitating mental health condition. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), almost 7% of American adults (16 million individuals) had at least 1 episode of major depression within the past 12 months.
Finding the proper treatment can often be challenging for anyone who has had depression or knows someone with depression. That’s where the staff at Ketamine Wellness Institute comes in. We understand how debilitating depression can be, which is why we’ve dedicated ourselves to helping those who currently live with this condition.
The Science Behind IV Ketamine
Ketamine has been used worldwide for decades both as a safe anesthetic and rapid pain reliever. Research in the last two decades indicates that ketamine, administered safely via a series of infusions, may relieve the symptoms of depression or other mental health conditions within hours. This is compared to the weeks or months oral antidepressants may take before relief is felt.
Researchers are still looking to determine the exact method of action with IV ketamine infusions. One theory proposes that it stimulates the regrowth of synapses – effectively “rewiring” the brain.
Another promising avenue of research into its effects indicates that it acts on glutamate, an important neurotransmitter that affects how synapses change and learn. This is called neuroplasticity: the ability of the brain to change and learn. This could explain ketamine’s strong effect on mood and pain disorders.
The Biggest Breakthrough in Depression Treatment in Fifty Years
At Ketamine Wellness Institute, we make you a priority. Our staff works diligently to create a tailored treatment plan that meets your needs. That’s why we’ve chosen to introduce this innovative treatment method to our community.
We offer low-dose ketamine infusions in a safe and relaxing environment to patients suffering from treatment-resistant depression by an anesthesiologist with years of experience. 70% of patients report symptom relief after just one infusion, unlike other treatment options that can take weeks or months for users to feel any effect.
At Ketamine Wellness Institute, once a patient’s mood is stabilized with ketamine, maintenance infusions are required once every one to six months or more for most patients. We will work closely with your primary care physician to provide you with the most comprehensive wellness plan possible. Our staff is committed to your care.
