People suffering from the debilitating symptoms of treatment-resistant mood disorders can find relief at Heading Health. The medical center offers ketamine therapy to patients that have failed to find recovery through traditional forms of medicine. They offer two forms of ketamine therapy: intramuscular and SPRAVATO (nasal spray).
Heading Health was founded by a collective team of leading doctors and mission-driven entrepreneurs passionate about mental health. The team is highly experienced and dedicated to helping patients regain control of their health through the use of ketamine therapy. Ketamine has been scientifically proven to effectively heal mood disorders in up to 75 percent of patients.
There are several differences between Spravato and ketamine, though more data is needed to fully understand how both work. On a basic level, Spravato is the brand name for the compound esketamine, which is derived from isolating one component of ketamine. Ketamine has a longer history, as well, though it’s not FDA-approved to treat depression. That brings us to a key difference in terms of access and cost: Spravato is covered by insurance, while ketamine is not. Clinical trials have shown a 69% response rate and 52% remission rate in patients treated with Spravato.
Those who have not been helped by conventional treatment strategies have another option with ketamine treatments. Research in the last 7-10 years has shown that ketamine infusions are effective for those suffering from treatment-resistant mental health conditions and chronic pain conditions. Either as an alternative to or a supplement to mainstream treatments, ketamine infusions offer an alternative path to healing for those who have lost hope.
