People suffering from various chronic mood disorders can find relief from their symptoms at Big Sky Ketamine Care. The medical center provides ketamine therapy to help people with treatment-resistant disorders such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, and suicidality.
Big Sky Ketamine Care is led by expert psychiatric physician Dr. William Stratford. He and the highly skilled medical staff at the clinic are dedicated to providing the best care possible for people in Montana and those living nearby in Canada. At the medical center, patients are more than just their symptoms and the team prides itself on providing unmatched care using ketamine infusion therapy.
Following a consultation and thorough mental health and physical examination, Big Sky Ketamine will work with your doctor to determine the best treatment for you.
Prior to your treatment, it is important that you do not consume any food at least 4 hours before your appointment and that you arrange for transportation on the day of your appointment. The clinic recommends that you wear comfortable clothing that allows staff to easily access your arms for treatment.
Ketamine is administered intravenously over a period of 40 minutes. You will remain awake during treatment but in a state of extreme relaxation. Your vital signs will be monitored during treatment for your safety and comfort. Patients sometimes report an ‘out of body’ experience of a sensation of ‘dreaminess,’ but these feelings fade 20 minutes after treatment.
The average course of ketamine infusion therapy consists of six treatment sessions over the course of 3 weeks. However, depending on your condition and symptoms, you may need additional treatments.
Those who have not been helped by conventional treatment strategies have another option with ketamine treatments at Big Sky Ketamine. Research in the last 7-10 years has shown that ketamine infusions are effective for those suffering from treatment-resistant mental health conditions and chronic pain conditions. Either as an alternative to or a supplement to mainstream treatments, ketamine infusions offer an alternative path to healing for those who have lost hope.
