These are the 10 Best Ketamine Clinics in New York City

If you are interested in mental health, you’re probably aware of the emergence of ketamine therapy. Ketamine has had quite a journey in the last 60 years. It has been widely used as an anesthetic since the 1960s. But was stigmatized as a party drug preferred by ravers in the 1990s. Then, in the 2000s, researchers figured out that ketamine could help alleviate symptoms of depression and other mental health issues — especially when it was combined with therapy. And in recent years, over 100 ketamine clinics have opened across the United States. But how can you tell which clinic is right for you? Here are the the 10 best ketamine clinics in New York City.

Best Ketamine Clinics in New York City: How Did We Decide Which Clinics are the Best?

Healing Maps is a directory for ketamine clinics in the United States and psychedelic-focused retreats abroad. We’ve seen a lot of clinics and know the differences between a reputable facility with a credentialed staff, and one that may not be worth your time.

As with any mental health or therapy-based experience, there’s no one size fits all. Each clinic offers its own unique vibe (also known as ‘set and setting’) and a team that brings their own sensibility to your experience. We haven’t ranked these in traditional order for that reason. One team or office setting may appeal to you more than another and we want you to be open to that.

We have come up with our ten best ketamine clinics in New York City by factoring in the quality and experience of the team, the quantity and quality of reviews and testimonials, and our own internal scoring system. We talk to clinicians and patients constantly. So we have valuable insights into what to look for in a quality ketamine clinic. So let’s jump in.
