As ketamine infusion therapy has become more widely accepted as a useful therapeutic tool, dozens of ketamine clinics have begun to open from coast to coast. Ketamine seems to be capturing national attention, from the news media to opportunistic entrepreneurs. The rapid growth and popularity of ketamine infusions is, in many ways, a powerful and positive development: it provides hope and a potential therapeutic option to those long suffering from a variety of life altering conditions. However, not all ketamine clinics are created equal. Effective ketamine therapy involves more than just an infusion with a “See you later!”. Providing counseling support both before and after treatment is critical, as well as utilizing sound medical practices and protocols.
So, how can you ensure you’re choosing a credible ketamine clinic? One that considers your health and safety their #1 priority? Look for the following:
- Experienced staff & medical professionals; a ketamine clinic should be run by physicians, or licensed clinicians,
- A thorough intake process that requires collaboration between your entire care team, including your primary care physician and/or mental healthcare providers
- Monitoring for drug side effects
- Compassionate care in a comfortable environment
- Follow-up with either a licensed counselor or your primary provider
Ketamine infusions are not typically the first line of depression treatment. Ketamine is used to treat individuals with treatment resistant depression, PTSD or chronic pain after other treatments have failed. A well-managed ketamine clinic will require a thorough patient screening and intake process that requires input from other members of the patient’s care team. Off-label ketamine is becoming more popular, but with the growth of the ketamine industry, there are concerns that some clinics are offering ketamine infusions to whoever is able to afford it regardless of therapeutic appropriateness.
