Important Info:

  • Referral Requirement
    • You do not need a referral from your primary care physician (unless you have high blood pressure, cardiac, and/or pulmonary issues, in which case it may be necessary for your PCP to provide a medical clearance) but you will need one from a licensed mental health care professional or physician.
  • Paired therapy
    • Progressive Psychiatry recommends that patients continue working with their outpatient providers for medication management and/or psychotherapy. If you do not have one, Progressive Psychiatry can organize a referral.

What to Expect at Progressive Psychiatry


You can eat and drink regularly before your appointment but avoid overeating. According to Progressive Psychiatry, it is recommended that you do not take benzodiazepines or any prescribed narcotics on the day of their infusion. As always though, check with your doctor.

The Infusion Process

During the infusion process, Ketamine will be administered intravenously, as an injection, orally or nasally.

If you’re receiving IV infusions, Ketamine will be distributed very slowly over 40-60 minutes. At the start of the infusion, you may not have noticeable effects, but as the infusion progresses, you may encounter a feeling of “lightness” or “floating,” which for some feels as a “weight being lifted off their shoulders.”

Most patients describe mild dissociative symptoms that are generally well tolerated. No matter what, you will be monitored throughout the infusion. The clinic is prepared to treat any unpleasant side effects during the procedure.

Within 15 minutes of completing the infusion, you will start to regain your senses and your thinking will return to normal.

The effects of a single infusion typically last up to two weeks. Per Progressive Psychiatry, after a series of six infusions, some people could remain symptom free for several months.

The clinic also offers the option of booster infusions which can be given monthly or a few times per year as needed. In general, a total of six infusions is recommended within a 3-4 week period in order to maximize the effects of Ketamine. However, the total length of treatment depends on each individual’s unique circumstances.
