CIT Clinics Vacaville provides ketamine infusion services to people with treatment-resistant pain and mood disorders. Breakthrough ketamine treatments have shown to be effective for treatment-resistant conditions and the medical center helps people overcome their symptoms one infusion at a time. Conditions they treat include depression, anxiety, migraines, and complex regional pain syndrome.
The clinic’s highly trained staff understand just how debilitating chronic mood and disorders can be. Director of Patient Care Oli Mittermaier works with the clinic’s various board-certified anesthesiologists, registered nurses, therapists, and coaches to help people on their healing journey.
The professionals at CIT Clinics Vacaville are committed to their patient’s overall wellbeing and pride themselves on offering a range of ketamine options to choose from. Patients can choose to receive ketamine infusions, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, or intranasal ketamine.
If together with CIT Clinics’ Wellness Coordinator, you decide to proceed with infusion therapy treatments, the clinic will collect the following information via online communication:
If you meet the guidelines for ketamine infusion therapy, you will receive 6 infusion sessions over the course of two weeks. This timeline has been shown to be most effective at treating conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and drug/alcohol withdrawals. The results typically last for one to two months or more, at which time you return for a single “booster” infusion to keep your symptoms at bay. Some patients don’t require boosters and the determination is made on a case-by-case basis.
During the infusions themselves, some patients report changes in their vision, speech, and thought processes. They often describe feelings of dissociation from their body. It can feel like a sedated or dreamlike state. If unpleasant hallucinations or other sensations occur, CIT Clinics may decrease the infusion rate and/or administer medications to minimize these experiences. Regardless, throughout the entire process, patients are monitored by a team of medical professionals who are prepared for any possible (and very unlikely) emergencies.
