Ketamine Infusions for OCD Treatment

Ketamine infusions are quickly becoming one of the most popular treatment options for various disorders, including OCD, depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

Unlike many traditional medications like SSRIs which can take months to start working, ketamine therapy offers patients relief quickly, with some individuals reporting relief within a few hours of their first infusion session.

How Does Ketamine Help Treat OCD?

Scientists believe that ketamine helps with OCD by rapidly boosting the activity of glutamate, a neurotransmitter inside the frontal cortex of the human brain, while also allowing new pathways to form in the same area.

The promptness of ketamine in yielding its therapeutic effect occurs because it bypasses the conventional serotonin path and goes straight to switching on glutamate.

This is remarkably different from conventional treatments, which initially boost serotonin activity levels in different areas of the brain to ultimately affect glutamate. This process usually takes weeks, sometimes months. Ketamine, on the other hand, produces rapid results and relief from OCD symptoms.

Where Will I Receive My Ketamine Infusions?

We strive to ensure all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible in their private rooms during treatment.

A number of our patients refer to a “dissociation” effect. This effect aids your treatment and delivers a positive response to ketamine therapy for many patients.

This is all an ordinary component of the treatment. You will always remain in a safe atmosphere with our team to monitor you and be readily available to you during your infusion.
