What types of ketamine services does Healing Realms Center offer?

  • Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy
    • They administer ketamine in the following ways:
      • Sublingual (oral) dissolving tablets: a lower-dose strategy which may allow for psychotherapy during the treatment. And an easier experience for those who are hesitant about injections.
      • Intramuscular injection (IM): given in the shoulder or hip. This delivers a highly bioavailable amount of medicine and a rapid onset; IM can provide the same dose used in sublingual administration or a higher dose that creates a more dissociative experience.

Financial Considerations

  • For those requiring ongoing treatment with ketamine, the practice is able to offer lower-cost options for maintenance using lozenges, following in-session training with one of their providers.
  • Insurance companies do not currently cover ketamine as a mental health medicine. Because they consider it off-label use.
