Located in Boulder, Colorado, Clarity Integrative Psychiatry focuses on the treatment of mental health issues such as depression, PTSD, anxiety, and OCD, among others. This ketamine clinic specifically aims to do more than treat symptoms. The team, led by Dr. Naveen Thomas, wants patients to achieve profound life changes, too. This is typically done by getting to the root of problematic symptoms.
What are common root causes? Everything from unresolved emotional trauma to hormonal imbalances.
Dr. Thomas is equipped to treat patients with these after working in several different mental health settings, including community mental health clinics and in outpatient clinical research. He’s received multiple awards for community service and research, presented workshops on Innovative Programs in Public Psychiatry, co-founded a non-profit organization to address the mental health needs of under-served minority populations, and worked with legislators to craft a bill in support of the organization.

The current effects of ketamine therapy for patients with depression are very positive. More studies need to be done, but respected institutions like Johns Hopkins are currently doing groundbreaking research on psychedelics in general. And their results have been very exciting. After the medical community turning their backs on these drugs in the previous decades, it seems that they may have overlooked their potential benefits. This is especially true for ketamine, which has what appears to be the ability to help with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and more.
That said, the long-term effects of ketamine therapy in keeping depression at bay remain understudied.
There’s no doubt that ketamine has a stigma attached to it. And we get that. It has been thought of as a party drug for a long time. But the research and evidence says it can help people with drug-resistant levels of depression, anxiety and PTSD. This means if you have tried other methods of treatment to no avail, then you may want to consider ketamine therapy.
And when we refer to ketamine therapy, we mean the clinical administratio of it. These therapies are conducted by professionals in safe and secure settings. While you may think of the drug as something from the black market, the DEA has actually categorized it as a Schedule III drug. Which puts it on the same level as Tylenol and codeine.
If you think this type of therapy could help you, then we suggest giving it a try. Don’t let the stigma of what this drug has been used for stop you from getting the help you need. And as always consult your doctor before any decisions.
