People suffering from the debilitating symptoms of treatment-resistant depression and anxiety can find relief at the Advanced Brain and Body Clinic. The medical center offers ketamine infusions for patients that have not found recovery through traditional forms of medicine.
The brain and body clinic is led by Dr. Brian Johns, a board-certified psychiatrist and Diplomate of the American Psychiatric Association, Dr. Kellie Leblanc, a Family Nurse Practitioner, and Dr. Stephen Manlove, a board-certified Psychiatrist and Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association.
Dr. Johns, Dr. Leblanc, and Dr. Manlove are passionate about helping people find treatment avenues that work to relieve symptoms of chronic disorders. They and their team at the Advanced Brain and Body Clinic offer ketamine therapy as part of a well-rounded approach to mental health care.
With knowledge, experience, and the power of ketamine therapy, Dr. Johns, Dr. Leblanc, and Dr. Manlove hope to help as many people as possible overcome their disorders.
Yes, ketamine is legal. In fact, it is only a Schedule III drug by the DEA. This puts it on the same level as Tylenol and codeine. So don’t let the baggage of this drug stop you from learning more about it. As always, ask your doctor if ketamine therapy is right for you.
Ketamine IV infusion therapy is the most common form of ketamine treatment. The drug is administered directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous drip into the arm. During the treatment, the patient lies still in a calm setting. The effect is usually immediate and can last weeks.
Patients typically receive a series of six infusions over two to three weeks. Most treatments last, on average, two hours. This is what’s called the “induction phase” of the treatment. A doctor monitors the patient’s response to the treatment. The patient stops treatment if the first phase is not effective. The patient moves onto the “maintenance phase” if he or she shows signs of improvement. At this stage patients typically return for one infusion every two to six weeks. At this point, the treatment can last as long as the patient desires and shows improvement.
