As Medical Director Michael Nguyen says in the Infusions of Texas’ Mission Statement, this ketamine infusion clinic seeks to provide “unparalleled and individualized care based on the uniqueness of each individual.” In conjunction with this individualistic focus, the holistic approach of the clinic, located in Draper, Texas, provides cutting-edge treatment to those suffering from difficult to manage mental health conditions. The comfortable and private clinic and skilled office staff make Infusions of Texas a safe and hopeful alternative for clients whose results from mainstream treatments have been disappointing.
Infusions of Texas is led by Dr. Nguyen, who brings knowledge of both psychiatric practices and emergency medicine to the clinic. Ketamine is recognized as one of the safest medicines in use for anesthesia and has been in use in emergency medicine for almost 50 years. The doses administered during infusions are significantly lower than those used in emergency medicine. The clinical staff are trained in this “off-label” use of ketamine, and strive to make the treatment experience stress-free and, ultimately, productive. Dr. Nguyen and his team can offer hope where it was once lost.
Before treatment begins, the clinic requires recent labs and a diagnosis of a mental health condition. Initial treatment consists of 6 infusions over the course of 2 weeks, administered in-clinic by a nurse or nurse practitioner. Clinical staff closely monitor patients during each 40-minute infusion. Some side effects may include nausea or increased blood pressure. Adjunctive medications are available should these effects become distracting, and the effects rarely last more than a few minutes.
World Health Organization data suggests that 300 million people worldwide suffer from some form of depression. Furthermore, many sufferers labor under conditions that are difficult to treat, conditions that do not respond to mainstream therapies in the desired ways. Ketamine therapy at Infusions of Texas offers an alternative to those with treatment-resistant conditions, with many patients reporting significant positive change after only one infusion.
