At NY Ketamine Infusions, we’ve helped numerous people mitigate the pain and suffering caused by depression, mood disorders and other conditions, including:
While infusions don’t work for all patients, we’ve seen positive, life-changing results in many. If you’ve run out of other treatment options, ketamine infusion therapy may be able to provide relief when other treatments have failed.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, OCD afflicts between 2 and 3 million American adults and half a million youth. Severe OCD can often cost people jobs, relationships and alter the course of one’s life. Treatment is essential.
According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), more than 300,000 cases of Lyme disease are diagnosed each year, with many leading to deteriorating mental and physical health, including acute, persistent pain, severe anxiety and depression.
Unwanted, intrusive and intensely distressing thoughts, images and urges associated with OCD are often accompanied by depression and anxiety. These conditions have all been shown to respond to ketamine infusion therapy in multiple clinical trials.
In 2013, Carolyn Rodriguez, MD, PhD and now Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavior Sciences at Stanford University, and her colleagues published the results of the first ever randomized clinical trial studying the use of ketamine to treat OCD. Fifteen patients with OCD were given either ketamine or a placebo.
