Ketamine Infusion Therapy has been shown to Improve the Symptoms of Depression in up to 70% of Patients after even a Single Treatment
Ketamine Infusion has been shown to be effective in the treatment of a variety of Depression related conditions
Every year, 13 million to 14 million Americans have major depression. 30% to 40% who seek treatment will not get better or fully recover with standard antidepressants. These patients, who do not recover, are at significantly greater risk to abuse drugs and alcohol. They also have increased hospitalizations, and suicide attempts. Multiple research studies show that ketamine infusion therapy may offer significant relief for these patients. Using ketamine appears to be a helpful alternative, for those who have exhausted traditional treatment options. Current data suggests that ketamine depression treatment infusions are appropriate for patients with treatment- resistant unipolar or bipolar depression, without psychotic features and lack substance-use disorder.
