At the Help Specialist IV Therapy Spa in Athens, Georgia, patients suffering from depression and other mood disorders can find relief from their debilitating symptoms through the use of ketamine infusion therapy. The ketamine infusions are administered intravenously and can also be used to help treat chronic pain disorders.
The Help Specialist IV Therapy Spa, led by board-certified anesthesiologist Dr. Jack Paschal, M.D., urges clients living in Athens, Atlanta, and Gainesville to contact them for a consultation if they are suffering and other treatment options have not worked in the past. Ketamine therapy has been shown to help ease symptoms of mood disorders and chronic pain and new research continues to shed light on the positive impacts it can have.

The team at Help Specialist IV Therapy Spa will conduct a pre- and post-treatment depression assessment and counseling that its medical team reviews to establish the efficacy of ketamine treatments for you.
Ketamine Infusion Therapy
A Ketamine infusion at Help Specialist will be administered over 40 minutes as tolerated for the mood disorder protocol. The doses used for mood disorders are less than used in an anesthetic application so you won’t lose consciousness during the Ketamine treatment. While receiving the infusion, some clients may have an altered perception of color and time. And most patients find the experience, scientifically referred to as a dissociative experience, to be pleasant.
Once the treatment is complete, the drug’s effects usually wear off over 15-30 minutes. Clients leave the clinic feeling like themselves except for mild tiredness. There are no “flashbacks” or other delayed effects.
You’ll need to arrange for a ride home following each treatment.
Help Specialist IV Therapy Spa will monitor your progress to best ensure a successful treatment plan is delivered.
For clients who experience a benefit from initial Ketamine treatments, the team at Help Specialist will review all aspects of your comprehensive history, including your response to the initial therapy. They may recommend a series of infusions in close proximity to maximize Ketamine’s cumulative and brain repairing benefits. This could be 4 to 6 infusions over a period of several days or a few weeks. Each person has unique needs.
Once the series of infusions is complete, together the client and the team collaborate to design a maintenance program that keeps the benefits at a level that is best. The duration between maintenance infusions or “boosters” can be a few weeks to as much as 3 months or more. The average period of relief between maintenance infusions is around 4-6 weeks.
