For those struggling with these difficult-to-manage conditions, Cope Psychiatry Houston offers a potentially quick-acting and long-lasting therapy. In short, clients will find a welcoming environment, flexible scheduling, and competitive pricing at the clinic.
Multiple top physician in Houston nominee, Medical Director Dr. Prashant Gajwani has participated in numerous clinical trials over the years, seeking new treatments for those who have been let down by mainstream medicines. During this time he has spoken around the world on pharmacological therapies, among other topics. With this combination of open-minded inquiry and rigorous, evidence-based medicine, Dr. Gajwani and Cope Psychiatry provide ketamine treatments to those suffering from resistant conditions. Both ketamine infusion and Spravato esketamine, a nasal spray treatment, are available at Cope Psychiatry Houston.
Initial ketamine infusions, 3 times a week, begin following a thorough mental and physical health screening. During the procedure, held in a private, comfortable clinic room under physician supervision, patients may feel very light or experience mild visual hallucinations. After the 2-4 week treatment program, maintenance infusions are scheduled for six (6) months, one infusion per month. IV infusions take approximately 40 minutes start to finish, and are administered by a trained expert. Cope Psychiatry requires a 1 hour observation period following infusion before patients are discharged, in case there are any lingering or ill effects from treatment.
Many people who suffer mental illness or chronic pain find little or no relief through mainstream medical practices. The Cope Psychiatry Houston clinic offers ketamine therapy as an alternative to those whose experience with traditional medications and therapies is proving less effective than desired. Certainly, as an alternative or a supplement to mainstream practices, ketamine therapy has shown positive change in some clients as quickly as an hour after the first infusion. For those suffering from treatment resistant anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, or chronic pain, Cope Psychiatry Houston can provide a safe and effective treatment alternative.
