The Ketamine Wellness Clinic of Orange County is a state-of-art treatment center for people suffering from various mood and chronic pain disorders. Located in the Mission Hospital Laguna Beach Campus, the clinic provides ketamine for anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and more.
Since the Ketamine Wellness Clinic of Orange County is located within a hospital, it has access to special support systems. This allows the staff at the wellness center the opportunity to provide the best outpatient care to people with debilitating conditions. The staff at the clinic work with patients and their existing healthcare providers to establish a well-rounded approach to treatment using ketamine in order to heal from debilitating conditions.
On your infusion day, you will arrive at Mission Hospital’s Laguna Beach campus and be greeted by a receptionist who will direct you and your ride to the clinic. You will fill out a brief health assessment prior to your infusion. This assessment will help Ketamine Wellness Clinic’s team to determine your response to the infusion and to tailor the dose and timing of your subsequent infusions.
The clinic’s nurse will then lead you to your room where she will start a small IV in your hand or arm. Staff will provide you with comfortable noise-canceling headphones and light relaxing music to listen to during your infusion, or if you prefer you may bring your own music.
The ketamine infusion is started and you are instructed to recline, relax, and close your eyes. The medicine is given slowly for over 40 minutes (the infusion is longer for pain disorders). During that time, the clinic’s staff will intermittently and unobtrusively monitor your vital signs.
Some patients report out-of-body sensations or mild hallucinations during the infusion process, but these side effects disappear soon after the infusion ends. Most can expect to be at Ketamine Wellness Clinic for approximately 90 minutes from the time you enter the clinic to when you leave, with minimal to no side effects at that point and none between treatments.
