Why Ketamine therapy?
Ketamine is a safe and effective medication first used in the 1960's for anesthesia. About a decade ago, Ketamine's potential as a potent antidepressant came to light and started gaining momentum in the mental health field. Since then, dozens of clinical trials have demonstrated Ketamine to be safe and highly effective in treating various mental health conditions such as treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, OCD, and anxiety when most conventional treatments have failed.
Common psychotropic medications take weeks to months to work. Ketamine's onset of action are observed within hours after treatment. Ketamine's antidepressant effect has been shown to be rapid and sustained even after just a single dose.
Dozens of high-quality studies have demonstrated Ketamine to have up to 90% response rate - even in treatment-resistant depression. Our Ketamine therapy is administered intravenously as it's been shown to be the most effective route of administration to achieve optimum benefit from treatment.
Ketamine has been safely used for 50+ years and has been approved by the FDA to treat major depression. Ketamine is currently being used by hospitals and clinics world-wide to treat other mental health conditions.
How does Ketamine work?
Ketamine works by binding on the NMDA receptor in your brain releasing a key neurotransmitter called glutamate. The activation and surge of this neurotransmitter in turn releases growth factors like brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) which acts like a fertilizer to the brain that promotes growth of both neurons (brain cells) and synaptic connections in the area of the brain associated with emotional regulation and healthy thought patterns.
Where do I begin?
Create your patient profile
After assessing if Ketamine therapy is a good fit for you, you will receive an e-mail invitation to create your patient profile and fill-out required clinic intake forms. If you're in-network, you might also get an invitation to create an account to process insurance and billing information from Headway and/or Alma.

We can also provide you a "super-bill" for you to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. As intravenous Ketamine therapy is becoming widely accepted as an effective and safe treatment for various mental health conditions, many insurance companies reimburse a significant amount for your treatments. We have simplified this process for you and it only takes a couple of minutes to do. We still encourage you to check with your insurance company to see what or if they will cover intravenous Ketamine treatments.
