The Montreal, QC location offers three different ketamine treatments as an alternative to mainstream oral medications. Of the millions who suffer from depression and mental health difficulties, many labor under conditions considered treatment-resistant. In both laboratory and clinical settings, ketamine has demonstrated its effectiveness and safety in treating these difficult to manage conditions.

Prior to beginning treatment, patients have an initial consultation that determines the nature and severity of their condition. A treatment plan is based on this assessment. Depending on the formulation of ketamine being used, patients can expect to be at the clinic for 1.5 – 2 hours per treatment, with a course of treatments running 4 – 6 infusions over 2 weeks. The most common side effect of ketamine therapy is dissociation, and though a common effect, any patients who experience discomfort will be monitored and treated by a trained member of the staff.
Ketamine therapy at CRTCE Montreal offers an alternative medication to mainstream oral medications. Many who suffer from difficult to manage mental health conditions find little relief in these mainstream medications. Ketamine shows significant reduction in symptoms sometimes after only one infusion. In conjunction with a primary psychiatric caregiver, ketamine therapy can be a safe and effective way of overcoming the challenges associated with mental illness.
