Ketamine Treatment in Las Vegas, NV

WHy KETAMINE?

Ketamine was developed in the 1960s as an intravenous anesthetic that is
currently used in virtually every hospital nationwide. Since the year 2000 a robust
body of research has developed showing it to be a fast, safe, effective treatment
for various mental health conditions, chronic pain, and substance dependence.
Where conventional therapy and medications typically take months or years to
tailor and take full effect, ketamine infusion therapy produces results within hours
or days in over 80% of cases, mercifully bridging that gap of time. Furthermore,
this therapy has proven to be effective for severe and otherwise “treatment-
resistant” mental conditions and far less expensive than electro-convulsive
therapy or inpatient psychiatric care/rehab. Hope is here.

DEPRESSION/SELF HARM/SUICIDAL IDEATION

Conventional treatment for depression with antidepressants can take months to years to fine tune and about one-third of patients do not respond to these treatments. Extended periods of inadequately treated symptoms increases the risk of self-harm and suicide. Augmenting your treatment with ketamine infusion can bring noticeable improvement in symptoms within hours to days, without the negative side effects associated with antidepressant medications. While most antidepressants help your brain produce more serotonin, which eventually stimulates glutamate production and functionality, ketamine stimulates glutamate activity immediately, providing faster and more effective results that begins following the first treatment. Even patients with extremely severe symptoms such as self-harm, suicidal ideation who are resistant to aggressive treatments such as electro-convulsive therapy have endorsed ketamine infusion as life-saving therapy.

POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER (PTSD)

With the extensive study of PTSD during and following the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, scientists now understand that traumatic experiences cause severe harm to the brain that affects the victim for the rest of their lives. PTSD is a result of damaged synapses (connection points) between neurons. Ketamine can help partially reverse that harm and begins to work within days to weeks. With our years of experience treating veterans, including victims of complex polytrauma from IED blasts, we understand their needs and how to best treat them. While PTSD is often associated with military veterans or emergency services personnel, it affects men, women, and children of all ages as a result of various other traumatic experiences such as abuse and accidents. Those suffering from these extreme traumas can develop actual changes in brain chemistry resulting in fear, anxiety, sleep loss, and emotional detachment, thought to be due to impaired connections in the neurons in the brain. Ketamine has shown promise in relieving those symptoms by repairing those connections.

ANXIETY

Individuals suffering from anxiety disorders suffer from persistent fear during common everyday scenarios. This can be debilitating, increasing personal and family burden by affecting ones ability to interact with others in work and social settings. Ketamine infusion therapy may assist you in regaining control of your life by decreasing the severity of your anxiety. Additionally, anxiety disorders occur commonly with depressive disorders and ketamine can effectively treat both. It is important to note that “Anxiety” is an umbrella term that encompasses multiple disorders. Some of these will respond to ketamine infusion therapy and some will not and ketamine will be one facet of treatment of your symptoms, along with traditional mental health care treatment managed by your primary care physician or mental health professional.

OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE DISORDER (OCD)

Like many other mental health disorders, treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder can take months with many patients never achieving acceptable control of their symptoms to allow them to function normally. Promising new research has demonstrated that some patients with treatment-resistant symptoms can experience remarkable clinical improvement with Ketamine. Some patients reported significant improvement before the end of their first treatment.

CHRONIC PAIN

The millions of Americans who suffer from chronic pain can attest that the body quickly habituates to increasing doses of strong pain relievers such as opioids; requiring ever increasing doses of dangerous medications to achieve a level of pain control that allows them to function normally. Unfortunately, while the pain relieving effects diminish over time, the side effects do not.  Ketamine has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, but also uses a unique neural pathway to block pain signals traveling to the brain, effectively acting as a “reset” button for pain receptors. Additionally, ketamine’s antidepressant effects improve depression and other mental health challenges associated with being in constant pain.
