Ketamine for PTSD
What Causes the Symptoms of PTSD?
How Can Ketamine Help With PTSD?
PTSD clients may see beneficial results after just one treatment, however, six treatments are recommended and administered over 2-3 weeks. Progress after the first infusion may be subtle, gradual, or intermittent over several days, most clients will notice positive results a couple of days after their 3rd infusion. With an effective rate of up to 80%, patients may experience lasting relief after completing six infusions.
Many clients know whether the treatments are a good option for them after the first infusion. In some cases where a client is unsure, we suggest proceeding through the 3rd infusion before a decision to continue or stop treatments, as it can be difficult to notice positive changes after living with chronic PTSD. Ketamine in combination with other interventions such as therapy modalities can experience longer relief.
When used in a safe, controlled environment under proper supervision, ketamine can provide near-immediate relief from emotional and physical pain, while helping to look deeply into one’s self. With the support of a trained practitioner, these experiences offer an expanded perspective that can help you reframe complex problems and heal from chronic and intractable symptoms.
