Ketamine Infusion Therapy – Does It Work?

Person looking into shattered mirror

People familiar with Ketamine Infusion Therapy are usually those who have already explored all other options to help them with their battle of chronic depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder, postpartum depression, or chronic pain. Patients come to Victory feeling helpless and seeking a solution. 

Ketamine Infusion Therapy – How Does it Work? 

Ketamine Infusion Therapy must be administered in a clinical setting by licensed medical professionals. Patients interested in Ketamine Infusion Therapy must first undergo psychiatric counseling and be properly assessed as a potential candidate for the treatment. Once the psychiatric counseling is performed and a proper assessment is given, the patient will be scheduled for a Ketamine infusion. 

The patient’s Ketamine infusion dose is based on the medical assessment by the provider and is customized for their individual treatment plan. The patient will be taken to a quiet serene room where they will be administered the Ketamine medication via intravenous infusion. At Victory Medical, it is important that you have an optimal Ketamine Infusion Therapy experience.  We ensure this by providing a comfortable reclining chair and encourage patients to listen to their music of choice.  In addition, you are monitored by a licensed medical professional for the duration of your treatment session. 

Does Ketamine Infusion Therapy Really Work? 

There have been many studies on Ketamine Infusion Therapy   Scientists believe that Ketamine Infusion Therapy can be compared to how a computer works. When someone is prescribed antidepressants, it is like a software reset. However, when someone receives Ketamine Infusion Therapy, it is more like a hardware reset for their brain and has a more immediate and profound effect.  Hardware can still require “upgrades” so future infusions may be required as a long-term treatment option.  

Our patients have described the experience as life changing. One of our Victory Ketamine patients described the experience as now having the ability to “make daily decisions from a much better level” as well as another patient mentioned “I had forgotten what it felt like to feel happy.” Many of our patients that utilize Ketamine Infusion Therapy trust the team at Victory Medical because they have been patients with us for many years.  However, we welcome new patients struggling with these conditions to get assessed as a potential candidate. 

You do not have to be scared or face these difficult issues alone. There is help and we at Victory Medical want you to feel comfortable with your care. We offer a personalized approach and will help guide you every step of the way. Ketimine FAQ’s
