At Restoration Psychiatry, individuals in the Los Gatos, California area can find access to ketamine therapy with an intentional spin. The team at the clinic understands that “no one path to recovery looks exactly the same as the next,” and the resulting treatment plans are tailored not only to the individual but also to the individual’s particular circumstances in life.
While ketamine therapy may be a significant and beneficial aspect to the treatment of chronic pain and mental health conditions, it is only one aspect, and the Restoration Psychiatry team work to make all of the aspects of a treatment plan work together.
Self-described as a “path to intentional living,” treatments from the Restoration team offer an alternative to mainstream oral medications, and a philosophy aimed toward promoting balance and health in their patients’ lives.
Clinic leader Dr. Tammy Saah was the first ever fellow at Emory University’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences to specialize in treatment-resistant depression. She was instrumental in the “development of Emory Healthcare’s TRD Clinic,” and brings this passion to help those struggling with such conditions to the Restoration Psychiatry clinic.
Along with her work at Restoration, Dr. Saah provides consultations to many Bay Area psychiatry clinics on the subjects of treatment-resistant depression and ketamine treatments.
The goal of Restoration Psychiatry is to enable their patients to “achieve contentedness again” and live a life of “intention and care.” Ketamine infusion treatments and therapy at the clinic are positive starting point for the journey to health.
Ketamine treatments at Restoration Psychiatry are administered intravenously, a contributing factor to the 70 percent success rate attributed to the medication. The trained clinic staff will determine your eligibility for the treatment, which is subsequently administered in small, sub-anesthetic doses.
Most patients report sensations of floating or leaving the body, along with some blood pressure changes and potential nausea, but these effects subside within 30-60 minutes of the infusion’s end.
Experts at the clinic can help you determine if ketamine therapy at Restoration Psychiatry is right for you. In lab settings, ketamine has shown remarkable efficiency in treating symptoms of depression and chronic pain in individuals who have not responded to mainstream medications and therapies.
IV ketamine therapy has also shown marked reduction in suicidal ideation only hours after treatment.
