Newsweek Spotlights Ketamine as a Promising Treatment for Adolescent Depression

Newsweek recently ran a Tech & Science story titled “Ketamine Shows Promise as Treatment For Adolescents With Depression“, highlighting findings from a University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic study, published in the Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology.

This story represents a growing number of popular media companies reporting on the efficacy of low dose Ketamine infusions as a breakthrough reliever of ailments such as Depression, chronic pain conditions, PTSD, Anxiety, Suicidality, and other personality disorders. This Newsweek piece is particularly interesting because it highlights the research conducted with adolescents and the effects of depression on brain development and milestones within a child’s life.

At Ketamine Wellness Centers, we treat a number of adolescent patients and take great measures to ensure the safety and transparency of this therapy within our clinical program. We have witnessed many adolescent patients in their journey to experiencing significant relief from symptoms of depression and often times, these stories are the most touching.
