Ketamine Treatments for Veterans With PTSD

A Department of Veteran Affairs studies in 2013 listed alarming statistics regarding the suicide rate of veterans. An average of 22 veterans a day were committing suicide, double the national average for civilians. As a result, the Veterans Affairs (VA) committed to regularly evaluating the mental health of veterans and providing treatment and suicide intervention programs when needed. One such treatment that was approved by the VA is Ketamine. Ketamine treatments for veterans with PTSD have been proven effective.

Veteran’s Affairs has approved both Ketamine IV infusions and derivatives of Ketamine, such as Spravato, an esketamine nasal spray that provides fast-acting relief from depression and anxiety. The Trump Administration endorsed esketamine in 2019. Ketamine is not a new treatment for veterans; it was effectively administered to soldiers during the Vietnam War.

Veterans experienced life-threatening situations while serving our country. The constant threat of death creates traumatic experiences that can last a lifetime and are challenging to emotionally process. Another challenge is how soldiers are sometimes conditioned to suffer in silence and show no weakness. This causes veterans to be reluctant to seek help, even when they know they need it. Trauma cannot just be willed away; it will resurface and cause life-disrupting symptoms.

Signs and Symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD):

  • Nightmares
  • Unwanted memories
  • Clinical depression
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability and emotional reactivity`12
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Avoidance of any triggers

Ketamine Therapy for Veterans Suffering from PTSD

With over 20 million veterans in the U.S. suffering from depression, debilitating anxiety, and PTSD, Ketamine is a fantastic clinical solution. Primarily because it not only provides immediate relief from depression, anxiety, trauma, and PTSD, but it helps to rebuild the neural connections in the brain and stimulate the glutamate system allowing natural mood hormones to flow freely and creating long-term positive changes to the brain.

Veterans can break free from moderate to severe symptoms of depression and PTSD with Ketamine treatments at Ketamine Infusion Centers. With the effects lasting several weeks to months, veterans are rehabilitated, then placed on a regular therapeutic maintenance program that prevents relapse and reduces suicide rates.

With the VA helping to cover the cost of Ketamine therapy for veterans, there is no reason for veterans to suffer any longer. Ketamine Infusion Centers are offering hope to veterans who have suffered in silence for years. Call today to begin taking control of your life again.
