Awakenings Infusion Center
We are a Ketamine Treatment Clinic in Raleigh, NC that specializes in the administration of intravenous ketamine and intranasal esketamine to treat Depression, PTSD, Anxiety, and Chronic Pain. Ketamine was FDA approved for anesthesia in 1970. It’s use in the treatment of mood disorders was triggered by studies that demonstrated a rapid and robust antidepressant effect from intravenous ketamine infusions.1
We fully support the recommendations of the Task Force created by the American Psychiatric Association Council of Research and their consensus statement on the use of ketamine to treat mood disorders.2 We will work in conjunction with your psychiatrists or primary care providers to help alleviate debilitating symptoms. While this is a new frontier, we believe that there is ample research to merit providing these services to the public.

Not everyone is an appropriate candidate for ketamine therapy. We will screen potential patients and collect the appropriate medical history to optimize results. Ketamine and esketamine represent only one aspect of the multi-modal treatment of mood disorders and chronic pain.
