Keystone Advanced Therapy, in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania offers cutting-edge ketamine therapy to those whose experience with conventional medications and therapies has shown little improvement in their quality of life. The clinic provides treatments for conditions ranging from Major Depressive Disorder to chronic physical pain. Ketamine shows promise as an effective medicine in treating not only the symptoms of such conditions but also the damaged areas of the brain that suffer the most trauma from resistant problems. The staff at Keystone Advanced Therapy seek to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for each client, with the hope of helping patients return to a more fulfilling quality of life.
The clinic is led by Dr. Scot DePue, a former Air Force general practitioner. Dr. DePue specializes not only in ketamine therapy but also in the treatment of those wrestling with substance abuse issues, having started Berks Alliance for Substance Abuse Recovery with Dr. Matt Shollenberger.
Along with Dr. DePue, the staff at the clinic provide a clean and comfortable environment in which clients can explore the healing modalities of ketamine therapy, both mental and physical. Recognizing that each patient has unique needs, Keystone Advanced Therapy personalizes each treatment plan to maximize the client’s positive outcome.
At Keystone Advanced Therapy, treatments are thoroughly researched and clients thoroughly screened before infusion therapy begins. Patients will have every aspect of the procedure explained in detail to ensure they have an understanding of the effects of ketamine.
When it comes time for the infusion, Dr. DePue will administer low doses of ketamine over a short period of time. You may start to feel an improvement in your symptoms 30-40 minutes after starting your treatment.
Ketamine infusion therapy has been shown to be effective either as a monotherapy or as part of a treatment plan for those whose conditions appear to be treatment-resistant or have become chronic. Keystone Advanced Therapy’s infusion treatments have shown significant benefits in patients, even those who have been unresponsive to electroconvulsive therapy. Although still being researched, ketamine’s antidepressive and pain-reducing qualities make it a safe and effective treatment for problematic conditions.
