Initia Nova offers patients suffering from mood disorders and chronic pain a chance at real relief. They do this through ketamine infusion therapy. Their name means new beginnings, and that is what they hope to offer those who seek help from the clinic.
The team at Initia Nova, led by Board Certified Emergency Physician Dr. Patrick Sullivan, works with patients to create individualized treatment plans. They aim to reset the brain chemistry in order to recover from these conditions effectively. Dr. Sullivan has been safely using ketamine for over 15 years.
Once Initia Nova’s comprehensive treatment team determines that you’d be a good candidate for ketamine infusion therapy, an individualized treatment plan will be created. Most patients begin with an initial series of 6 infusions, initially twice a week.
The infusions themselves will be administered at Initia Nova’s office in their treatment room. You’ll be seated in a comfortable reclining chair, an IV will be inserted, and staff will continuously monitor your heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygenation. The doctor and/or nurse will be with you during your infusion, which typically takes about an hour. The clinic’s therapist may sit in as well if you are doing ketamine-assisted psychotherapy.
Initia Nova will continue to monitor you for at least 30 minutes after your infusion. You do not need to have someone bring you or remain with you during the infusion, but you cannot drive yourself home. Someone will need to come into the office to pick you up, or if you are taking a cab or Uber, you will be required to stay for a longer observation period in the office
