Ketamine-assisted Therapy

The Impact of Ketamine-assisted Therapy on PTSD and Depression

Ketamine-assisted therapy is developing as a viable remedy for those “treatment-resistant” during an international epidemic and a severe mental health crisis. For a couple of decades, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have been on the rise, with its direct effects (e.g., the burden of suffering) and indirect (e.g., disability/role impairment and family effect).

Psychedelic-assisted therapy has shown promising results in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction, and suicidal ideation, among other clinically problematic disorders. Ketamine is the only psychedelic-like treatment that is now safe, effective, and readily available.

The emphasis of Ketamine Infusion Therapy

A single Ketamine Infusion Therapy has been shown to relieve depressive symptoms in treatment-resistant depressed patients within hours, with effects lasting up to two weeks.

Ketamine is one of the few drugs to recently receive breakthrough Therapy status as an off-label treatment for depression.

When the Doctors conducted the research, more than 30 referral centers participated in a double-blind, active-controlled, multicenter study of ketamine-assisted psychotherapy. 4 weeks into the research, the esketamine group demonstrated significant improvements in depressive symptoms compared to the other group.

How it works

When ketamine is given in sub-anesthetic dosages, it generates a phenomenology psychedelic experience similar to psilocybin and Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). That allow therapists to assist clients to work through their trauma-related beliefs and feelings.

Ketamine-assisted Therapy has shown effectiveness in treating PTSD, depression, and addictions. Therefore, Suboxone Doctors and Ketamine therapists suggested using Ketamine with Psychedelic-assisted therapy to maximize its therapeutic impact and minimize safety risk.

Conclusion

Ketamine Infusion Therapy works best when merged with psychedelic-assisted therapy and helps alleviate PTSD and depression effectively. Medication-assisted therapy also works well, but it depends on which one your doctor recommends.

If you find any symptoms such as anxiety, suicidal ideation, depression, bipolar disorder, and addictions, consult your nearest Ketamine or Suboxone Clinics or email any authentic telehealth to seek treatment for yourself ASAP!
