Imagine working at a job where you get to see people’s lives change for the better every day. This is a reality for the staff at ReYou Ketamine Treatments who have seen hundreds of lives improve in a matter of days. In recent years, ketamine has been used as a breaththrough medical treatment for anxiety, depression, and trauma. The drug was first synthesized in 1962 and received FDA approval in 1970, and has been used by medical professionals in various settings, including as an anesthetic and in the treatment of mental health conditions. Spearheaded by researchers at top universities such as Yale and Columbia, data on the benefits of ketamine for mental health is exciting the mental health world.
Two entrepreneurs have now brought IV ketamine therapy to the Ocean County community, offering patients a comfortable, relaxing environment in which to receive their treatments. The process typically involves a medical consultation to determine if ketamine infusion therapy is right for the patient, followed by a 40-minute IV drip while the patient listens to instrumental music designed by neuropsychologists specifically for use with ketamine. Patients typically receive a series of infusions as their initial treatment, and may follow up with individual infusions every few months.
One of the key advantages of ketamine treatments is how quickly they can work. Many patients report feeling better within a week or two of starting treatment, and some even notice an improvement after just one treatment. Additionally, ketamine has very few side effects, making it a safe and effective option for those who have not responded to other antidepressant medications. It can also be taken in conjunction with existing treatment plans because it has a different mechanism of action than most antidepressants. Ketamine is most well-known for its antidepressant and antianxiety properties, but many patients are surprised to find that their OCD or ADHD symptoms also improve with treatment. This is because ketamine helps people address the underlying causes of their issues, rather than just treating the symptoms. At ReYou, the most common conditions treated with ketamine are depression, anxiety, and trauma.
For those who have struggled with depression, trauma, or anxiety, it can feel exhausting and scary to seek help. But the staff at ReYou Ketamine Treatments have seen hundreds of lives improve in a matter of days, and are committed to providing a supportive, comfortable environment in which patients can receive the care they need. With the rapid results and few side effects associated with ketamine treatments, it may be the best option you’ve never heard of.
