Your Treatment: What to Expect

If ketamine therapy is determined to be a beneficial course of action, infusion appointments take 2-3 hours, with a normal course of treatments including six infusions over two weeks. Trained healthcare staff will start an IV and monitor vitals and reactions to the medication throughout the infusion.

Some patients report sensations of floating, or mild hallucinations, but these effects fade once the infusion has finished.

Who is this treatment for?

According to the National Institute for Mental Health, of the over 11 million people who suffer from depression in the United Stated, 64 percent have a severe condition. Four million go untreated.

Ketamine therapy offers an alternative for those whose experience with mainstream oral medications or traditional pain therapies has not been as beneficial as hoped for.

The team at StrIVeMD Wellness and Ketamine offer cutting edge therapies to treat resistant and chronic health conditions, and restore hope and vitality to their patients.
