His passion for helping those struggling with mental illness started early on in his career. After witnessing first-hand the effects that mental illness can have, Dr. Nazeer strives to help his patients through transparency, thoroughness, and compassion.
In Advanced Psychiatric Solutions’ state-of-the-art facilities, infusion rooms are designed to be exceptionally quiet and serene. They use electronic devices that allow connection to a variety of options for music or white noise. Patients relax in motorized reclining chairs for optimum comfort.
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.
