The Washington Post recently ran a story titled, “Trippy depression treatment? Hopes and hype for ketamine“, highlighting Ketamine as a new hope for depression and suicidal behavior. The NIMH estimates that in the United States, 16 million adults had at least one major depressive episode in 2012. That’s 6.9% of the population. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression. In fact, it is a leading cause of disability.
In this story, The Washington Post highlights a 36-year-old preschool teacher named Lauren P. who has struggled with anxiety, depression and suicidal attempts for the majority of her life, until she found Ketamine earlier this year.
Lauren is just one example of the type of patient we serve at Ketamine Wellness Centers. At Ketamine Wellness Centers, we treat a number of professionals from all walks of life, as our clinical program is one of few, if not the only clinic, which combines the diagnostic tools of mental health professionals with the precision of the anesthesia community. The combination of those two professions allows us to evaluate patients and determine how effective Ketamine treatment may be for that person or loved one.
If you’re looking to find relief or know someone is struggling with an ongoing mental health, anxiety or a chronic pain condition, please give us a call 855-KET-WELL (855-538-9355)
