Imagine Healthcare in Chicago, Illinois logo

People suffering from the debilitating symptoms of treatment-resistant mood or chronic pain disorders can find relief at Imagine Healthcare. The medical center offers ketamine infusions for patients that have not found recovery through traditional forms of medicine. Conditions they treat at the clinic include depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and complex regional pain syndrome.  

Imagine Healthcare was founded by Dr. Rachel E. Norris, a board-certified Emergency Medicine and Palliative medicine specialist. She has over two decades of experience using ketamine in a variety of settings. She and the team at the health clinic offer a personalized approach and targeted therapies.

The clinic offers ketamine therapy at a low cost without compromising the quality of the care. With knowledge, experience, and the power of ketamine therapy, Dr. Norris and her team hope to help as many people as possible overcome their disorders.

  • If you have uncontrolled/untreated high blood pressure, glaucoma, liver disease or thyroid disease, have certain heart issues (e.g. congestive heart failure, abnormal heart rhythm, active chest pain), have an active substance abuse disorder, history of psychosis, any symptoms of mania, delusions or hallucinations, it is likely unsafe for Imagine Healthcare to give you ketamine. Additionally, if you have been diagnosed with a personality disorder (e.g. schizotypal, borderline) then ketamine may not be the ideal medication for you.

Your Treatment: What to Expect at Imagine Healthcare

Mood infusions last about 45 minutes but you should plan on being at the clinic for at least 90 minutes to account for the preparation time needed prior to your infusion and the time needed to recover afterward. Some clients won’t need this much time but some may need even a bit longer. Pain infusions can be as long as four hours so plan on being at the clinic for a good portion of your day.

Some patients report out-of-body sensations or mild hallucinations, but these side effects disappear soon after the infusion ends. Throughout the process, patients are monitored by one of the clinic’s highly-trained staff.

You cannot drive for at least 12 hours after an infusion, so the clinic asks that you arrange for a trusted friend or family member to pick you up.

You will receive a check-in call from one of the clinic’s team members after your induction series to see how you are doing and if there is anything they can do to support you before they see you again for your first maintenance appointment.

Who is this treatment for?

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.
