APS Ketamine, also known as Advanced Ketamine Care Chicago, serves patients in the Chicago, Illinois area using ketamine therapy for a wide variety of mood disorders. They treat conditions such as severe depression, generalized anxiety, panic disorders, and alcohol and cocaine addiction.
Dr. Abid Nazeer is the founder of APS Ketamine and his motivation stems from his desire to help those suffering from debilitating mental illnesses. He is driven to help educate his patients on the science behind their disorders as well as the different treatment options available to them. Through the use of ketamine infusion therapy, Dr. Abid Nazeer hopes to help as many people as possible overcome their illness and find hope for better mental health.
Dr. Nazeer has been a pioneer in the ketamine industry, and Advanced Ketamine Care was one of the first ketamine therapy clinics to open in the Chicago area. We have worked with Dr. Nazeer before and he has a sterling reputation and has a a clean and professional clinic.
During the infusion, Dr. Nazeer is accompanied by a full-time advanced practice nurse and one full-time registered nurse, all of whom provide careful monitoring of patients’ vital signs and mental status during and after treatment.
Ketamine has a bit of stigma and baggage given its history. While you may think of it as a “party drug” from the 1990s, there is a growing amount of research that says it has some positive potential. The more research our major institutions conduct, the less stigma there will be around these drugs. And if they can help people with drug-resistant depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc, then why wouldn’t we put these to use in proper, clinical settings?

This is primarily due to its stigma as a party drug. The truth is 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.
