To help treat patients with chronic pain and mental disorders, Treasure Coast Ketamine Wellness and IV Nutrition Center in Vero Beach, Florida, offers ketamine therapy. The clinic specializes in treating treatment-resistant depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, migraines, chronic neuropathic pain, and alcohol and drug addiction. Treasure Coast is also the only facility in the area that includes integration therapy before and after every treatment.
Owner Gregory McCracken, who has been administering ketamine for more than 20 years, opened the clinic at the beginning of 2020 after realizing that the Vero Beach area was lacking in available ketamine therapy options. A member of the American Society of Ketamine Physicians, Greg works alongside Dr. Sam Muraskin to help patients overcome their chronic pain and psychiatric disorders with ketamine therapy while Alan Romano, MSW, counsels patients through talk therapy sessions.
– IV ketamine infusion therapy
– Integration therapy
Since you will not be able to drive for several hours after your infusion, make sure to arrange for transportation to and from Treasure Coast Ketamine Wellness and IV Nutrition Center’s office.
You will receive your infusion in a reclining chair in a comfortable room, where you can listen to music on headphones that you bring or with the clinic’s Bluetooth speakers. Once you are hooked up to the infusion pump and vitals monitor, staff will dim the lights and give you time to enjoy the treatment experience while occasionally checking in on you.

Ketamine has a bit of stigma and baggage given its history. While you may think of it as a “party drug” from the 1990s, there is a growing amount of research that says it has some positive potential. The more research major institutions conduct, the less stigma there will be around these drugs. And if they can help people with drug-resistant depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc., then why wouldn’t we put these to use in proper, clinical settings?
