Could Ketamine Treatment Prevent Addiction Relapse?

Addiction is one of the biggest challenges facing us today. According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), almost 10% of people today struggle with some form of drug addiction (including alcohol). While treatment is available, and can be effective, the reality is half the people who get treatment will relapse. Are you or a loved one in the use / get treatment / can’t stay sober / relapse cycle? How can you be one of the few who get clean and stay clean?

Many people become addicted to drugs and alcohol as a way to eliminate pain. When you are hurting, whether the pain is physical or mental, you want relief. Many people seek help, but often traditional treatments do not help, or help enough, or have intolerable side effects.

The solution? A treatment that can effectively end the suffering experienced by people with chronic pain and depression. If the pain is gone, addiction treatment can be far more successful. If the pain is gone, much of the cause for relapse is gone as well.

There is a more effective treatment for pain and depression, which often underlie addiction problems. Ketamine can provide the pain relief you or a loved one need to stop using drugs (including Alcohol) and maintain sobriety and path to good health. Ketamine may be the treatment you need to stop the cycle of relapse in addiction.
