The staff at Georgia Ketamine Gainesville pride themselves on giving their patients the best care possible when it comes to ketamine infusion therapy. They have been treating conditions such as depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, migraines, post-traumatic stress disorder, and chronic pain since 2015.
Georgia Ketamine Gainesville is often the last stop on the road to recovery for many patients that have sought help to no avail. The staff knows that ketamine therapy can work quickly and effectively for anyone suffering from depression no matter how many treatment options they’ve tried or how long they’ve suffered. They also offer a complimentary acupuncture treatment with ketamine therapy to help further drive pain relief.

To establish care at Georgia Ketamine Gainesville, you’ll need to either obtain a referral from a Licensed Mental Health Professional or call the office for an in-house evaluation (the former is preferred).
If ketamine treatment is right for you, the clinic will book an appointment for you to receive a full consultation and discuss your needs and various protocols.
When it comes time for your infusion appointment, the medication will be given to you intravenously while you are in a reclining chair in a relaxed private environment. Patients are encouraged to bring their own music to each appointment or listen to provided relaxing sounds through speakers or headphones to create a relaxing environment. You may also want to bring a pair of sunglasses or shades as lights can seem brighter than usual. You will be monitored by licensed medical staff during your infusion. You are encouraged to direct your own experience. If you would like to talk, a staff member will be there to listen and guide you; however, if you desire to remain quiet that is also acceptable. The medicine is slowly infused over approximately 40 minutes.
The remainder of the session will be a time period of recovery lasting approximately 30-45 minutes. Most patients can plan to be at Georgia Ketamine Gainesville for a total of 90 minutes, though each session length is dependent on individual patient needs. The clinic requires you have a trusted friend or family member available immediately after treatment for transport.
If you are experiencing positive results, Georgia Ketamine Gainesville recommends a series of 6 total infusions over a period of two weeks. Following these two weeks, the clinic will develop a treatment plan for each individual patient regarding maintenance infusions. Every patient is unique, therefore no treatment plan will be the same. Your referring practitioner will receive a treatment summary from the clinic following each treatment as well to ensure continuity of care with your primary mental health specialist/physician.
A single infusion can last anywhere from days to 1-2 weeks. A series of 6 infusions can last from weeks to months, with maintenance doses restoring response when effects are wearing off. Each patient is different with responses varying.
