Ketamine treatment has emerged as a promising and innovative approach for individuals grappling with persistent mental health challenges. Traditionally known as an anaesthetic, ketamine has shown remarkable potential in treating conditions like depression, anxiety, and PTSD when administered in controlled therapeutic settings. Unlike conventional antidepressants, ketamine acts rapidly, often providing relief within hours rather than weeks. This swift response can be particularly beneficial for those facing acute distress or individuals who have not responded well to other forms of treatment.

Ketamine Treatments

Ketamine’s journey in mental health treatment traces back to its approval as an anesthetic in the 1960s. However, in the past couple of decades researchers began exploring its potential in treating mental health disorders, demonstrated initially by ketamine’s rapid and robust antidepressant effects. It can be helpful in reducing treatment-resistant symptoms in those suffering with depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, suicidal ideation, and addicitons (source: National Library of Medicine).

The evolution of ketamine therapy has been marked by its integration into a supportive therapeutic context. The treatment aims to capitalize on ketamine’s unique effects, which can lead to introspection and insights, and facilitate the processing of difficult emotions, memories, and entrenched thought patterns. At The Newly Institute, Ketamine treatment is used in conjunction with other therapeutic methods, including Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), as a way of helping patients relax their minds and more readily accept the treatments offered.
