Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy is changing mental health treatment for the most ‘difficult to treat’ disorders.
This exciting new treatment is finally available! Neuroscientists have recently made important breakthroughs bringing rapid relief to people who’ve felt stuck with anxiety and depressive symptoms for years. Many people have not found the current available treatments for anxiety and depression helpful. With ketamine treatment, many of these people are not only feeling significantly better, they are also finding new hope for their future.
Back in the 90’s researchers accelerated the study of medicines that had been previously overlooked or thought to be minimally useful, and found new hope in them as tools for inducing neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to reset itself and get a fresh start, so that we may create new patterns where old entrenched patterns had bogged us down . Ketamine is one of the first of these medicines to be available in the clinical setting. With ketamine, researchers have been consistently seeing dramatic improvements in clinical trials for people with disorders that have been very difficult to treat with other current commonly prescribed medications and treatments.
While ketamine is most familiar as an anesthetic used in medical settings such as emergency rooms or surgical units, we now have strong evidence for its value in lower doses, as a psychiatric medicine. With the right therapeutic dose administered in a comfortable office setting, this unique medicine has been shown to have a profound positive impact on even the most intractable disorders. In fact that’s what it does best! Ketamine is a particularly effective treatment for intransigent depression, ruminative anxieties, addictions, and even PTSD, and OCD…. essentially all disorders characterized by neuro-rigidity.
At the Center for Healing Journeys we offer this valuable tool either by itself or in combination with an array of proven therapeutic techniques to create a personalized ketamine assisted psychotherapy treatment plan. We hope it will bring rapid relief for you, and ultimately the direct experience of your ‘optimal self’ – a feeling you may have long abandoned as possible.
