Before the Infusion
Once a patient has decided to move forward with receiving ketamine infusion therapy, one of our team members will schedule a complimentary consultation with our board-certified Anesthesiologist or Psychiatrist.
The consultation is performed either over the phone or videoconference and lasts approximately 15-30 minutes.
This service is required for all patients prior to scheduling an appointment.
Initial Mental Health Series
An initial mental health series consists of six one-hour-long infusions under the care and supervision of a board-certified Anesthesiologist and/or Psychiatrist (MD).
Each appointment lasts approximately 90 mins, in order to allow patients to prepare and recover adequately before and after their infusion.
This service is recommended for either, patients who are just beginning ketamine therapy, or patients who would like to repeat a series.
Maintenance Booster Infusions
A single one-hour long infusion under the care and supervision of a board-certified Anesthesiologist and/or Psychiatrist (MD) to maintain the therapeutic response.
Appointments last approximately 90 mins, in order to allow enough time for patients to prepare and recover adequately before and after their infusion.
This service is recommended for all patients seeking periodic treatments. Most patients also need maintenance treatments every 4-8 weeks,

Ketamine infusions for pain are mostly the same as the ketamine infusions for mood disorders, with a few important differences. Pain infusions are typically at a higher ketamine dosage over the course of 2-3 hours.
Pain infusions are usually well-tolerated, with the same possible side effects as the ketamine infusions provided for mood disorders (short-term mild-nausea and hallucinations).
At KWI, while we provide infusions for chronic pain, the evidence of the longevity of the pain relief as a result of the infusions is limited except for specific neuropathic pain conditions that you should discuss further with the physician.
Pain infusions will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for applicable patients.
Ketamine therapy isn’t covered by most insurance companies, so we do not participate in any insurance plans and will not bill them on your behalf. We will provide you with the necessary forms to submit to your insurance company. The team at Ketamine Wellness Institute offers packages and works with you to help you afford the treatment you need, not wanting cost to impose a barrier to treatment.
