Ketamine Treatment Center in Raleigh, NC
Intravenous ketamine therapy holds much promise ever since “robust decreases in depressive symptoms” were first described in clinical trials in 2000.1 Subsequent studies have shown that repeated dosing can sustain initial improvement in symptoms.2
We wanted to make these services available to the public only if we were convinced about their effectiveness and safety. Based on the compelling research, we started the numerous steps to open our business. Before our doors opened, the FDA approved the intranasal version of ketamine for use in Treatment-resistant Depression. We saw this as validating our business model and thereby recognizing the effectiveness of ketamine therapy for mood disorders.
We offer intravenous ketamine therapy for Depression, PTSD, Anxiety, OCD, and Chronic Pain. While these treatments are revolutionary, we recognize that they represent only one part of the multi-modal therapy for psychiatric disorders. We will integrate care with your psychiatrist and/or primary care provider to promote the best possible results.
