Meet Tiger King’s Joshua Dial Husband, PTSD Survivor, Ketamine Patient
Joshua Dial is a husband, father, and PTSD survivor but is best known for his appearance on the hit Netflix series, Tiger King, where he managed the gubernatorial campaign for the show’s subject, Joe Exotic. We here at Ketamine Wellness Centers began treating Joshua’s depression, anxiety and PTSD in mid-2020 and documented portions of his journey towards healing and wellness through the breakthrough therapeutics of ketamine infusion treatments.
Unfortunately, Joshua’s story is not uncommon. Millions of people suffering from debilitating mental health conditions do not receive the support and therapy they need. This is Joshua’s story; one of hope and self actualization. Over the course of his treatment, we asked Joshua to share his struggles, what his expectations were going into the treatment room, and what the entire experience was like for him over the course of his treatment program.
In the moments after his first ketamine infusion, Joshua reported immediate relief. Fast forward two weeks and Joshua along with his primary physician began gradually weaning himself off the benzodiazepine medications that were adversely affecting him. Everybody from Joshua’s husband to his family to his fans have noticed a pronounced change, from his mood to disposition to his energy levels. We are thrilled to witness Joshua thriving and are honored to part of his journey towards wellness and healing.

Feeling the Change

After Joshua’s final stabilization treatment, we check in to see how he was feeling about the present and the future. We also asked what advice he would give to others who are suffering from similar conditions.
