As a leading provider of ketamine infusions in the Cope Psychiatry Philadelphia clinic offers treatments to those whose conditions have proven difficult to manage using traditional therapies. A 2017 study found that only 1 in 5 individuals suffering some form of mental health disorder sought treatment, or did not receive adequate care. As a result, the Philadelphia, PA clinic provides ketamine therapy for those struggling with difficult-to-manage depression, anxiety, and/or chronic pain. Clients will find a welcoming environment, flexible scheduling, and competitive pricing at the clinic.
With over 15 years of clinical psychiatric experience, Medical Director Raman Gopalakrishnan leads the team at the Cope Psychiatry Philadelphia clinic in offering leading-edge treatments for difficult conditions. As the founder of Riddle Psychiatry in 2012, Dr. Gopalakrishnan collaborates with the Centers of Psychiatric Excellence (COPE) to offer ketamine therapy to those seeking alternative treatments. COPE was originally founded by a group of doctors focused on providing treatments to those suffering from resistant conditions. In keeping with this philosophy, the team of experts at the Philadelphia clinic offer information and solutions to those struggling with difficult disabilities.
In order to determine whether or not ketamine therapy is a suitable treatment, each client undergoes a thorough mental and physical health screening prior to infusions. Following the health screening, administering of infusions occurs 3 times a week. Maintenance infusions scheduled for six (6) months after the end of regular treatments happen once per month. Infusions take place in a private, comfortable space in the clinic, supervised at all times by an expert staff member. It takes approximately 40 minutes for IV infusions, which are followed by a 1 hour observation period before patients are discharged.
With “17.52 percent of adults in Pennsylvania…[reporting] some type of mental health disorder,” Cope Psychiatry Philadelphia stands ready to offer treatment to those who have been disappointed with usual treatments and therapies. Ketamine therapy should not necessarily replace mainstream psychiatric or physical therapy practices, and can function as a supplement to such practices. Further, if clients have seen little or no return from these mainstream practices, ketamine therapy offers an alternative in which some patients have reported significant positive change only hours after the initial infusion.
