The Integrative Psychiatry Center of Boulder is a Ketamine clinic that provides guidance to patients through administered IVs and focused psychiatry. These treatments can help with challenging mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and OCD.
Using Ketamine treatment as a short-term medical solution with a targeted psychotherapy plan, the IPC staff is led by founders Will Van Derveer, MD and Keith Kurlander, MA, LPC. They have years of experience assisting patients to overcome challenging mental health disorders.
IPC differentiates itself from other ketamine providers by providing several key components. These include a medical team, a commitment to keeping costs low, integrative psychiatry, and a physician on-site. Unlike other providers, IPC also places each patient in a private room with a highly skilled therapist.
Overall, the Integrative Psychiatry Center of Boulder’s ultimate goal is to revolutionize mental healthcare with innovative treatments that address the root cause of mental health disorders.

The current effects of ketamine therapy for patients with depression and other mental health conditions are very positive. As with anything in this space, more research needs to be done. However, respected institutions like Johns Hopkins are doing some groundbreaking research on psychedelics in general. And their results have been very exciting.
For example, studies have shown that IV ketamine reliably produces, in approximately 70 percent of people, a significant reduction in symptoms of depression.
At the same time, the long-term effects of ketamine therapy in keeping depression at bay remain understudied.
This is a frequently asked question. Ketamine is a drug that has some baggage to it. That’s understandable. It has been thought of as a party drug for a long time. But the research and evidence says it can help people with drug-resistant levels of depression, anxiety, and PTSD. This means if you have tried other methods of treatment to no avail, then you may want to consider ketamine therapy.
And when we refer to ketamine therapy, we mean therapies conducted by professionals in safe and secure settings. The DEA even categorizes ketamine as a Schedule III drug. This puts it on the same level as Tylenol and codeine.
If you think this type of therapy could help you, then it could be worth giving it a try. Don’t let the stigma of the drug stop you from getting the help you need. And as always, consult your doctor before any decisions.
