Who is Ketamine Treatment For?

Ketamine gets a bad rap. The first thing people think when they hear the drug is usually a rave or some party scene. But the truth is, ketamine has been an effective treatment for many diseases. It actually got its start as an anesthetic during the Vietnam war in the 1960s. But abuse of the drug was rampant in the 1980s and 1990s. And like any drug, when you use it improperly, bad things can happen. It should never be used without a clinician. Which means at a club or party. But when it’s used by trained clinicians in safe and secure settings, it can be a huge help to treat depression, anxiety, PTSD and many more issues. As John Abenstein — president of the American Society of Anesthesiologists said, “Outside of the clinic, ketamine can cause tragedies, but in the right hands, it is a miracle.”

We need to do more research. But don’t let the stigma of ketamine stop you from learning more about it. If you think ketamine therapy at Meroë Psychiatric may be right for you, ask your doctor.

And if you’re wondering, yes, ketamine is legal. The DEA currently lists it as a Schedule III drug. This puts it in the same category as Tylenol.

    Hi Dr. Appah,
    I had contacted your office during the pandemic at the strong suggestion of Mel Schwartz. I spoke to Nurse Cherry and thought at that time I was alright to just continue talk therapy, but my lifelong depression has not lifted. I have since been taking Lexapro and doing cbt which has kept me afloat but barely. You have been suggested again to me by two therapists, Victoria Katz, who had a patient receive ketamine with you and who’s depression lifted, and Dr. Tom Smith, the head of the New York Psychiatric institute. I am informed by your service that you will not accept new patients. I cannot drive outside of Westport so I have no idea how I would handle getting to another Ketamine practitioner. In addition, my comfort level with anyone but you would be non existent.
    If you could possibly make an exception for me as hopefully I am already in your system I would be so very grateful.
    Thank you so much,
    Kane Peterson
