Ketamine was approved as an anesthetic in 1970. First, it was used to treat injured soldiers in the Vietnam War, but as the research progressed and medical professionals started seeing the drug’s benefits, it was used more in the United States through controlled therapy.
Ketamine therapy can be incredibly effective in fighting depression, suicidal thoughts, PTSD, and other conditions where your ability to lead daily activities is taken from you. However, it is crucial to know, ketamine can and should only be used by professionals in a controlled environment.
How Does Ketamine Therapy Work?
You can receive ketamine therapy orally, through the muscles, or intravenously. Intravenously is the most common way of administrating ketamine which gives you a little idea of how the therapy looks.
The therapy usually lasts for about 40 minutes and there is a doctor nearby at all times. However, unless you ask for something, no one is going to bother you. Ketamine therapy gives you a moment of peace, but it is after the therapy is over when real recovery begins.
When you come back to the “normal” life, a health professional will talk with you about your experience and everything else you might feel like saying. Talk therapy following ketamine administration serves so you can reflect on your new feelings and realizations.
How Much Does Ketamine Therapy Cost?
You can read more about pricing here, but introductory individualized sessions comprising five different sessions cost $1500. It might seem a little expensive because classic health insurance doesn’t cover it. But when you look at the effectiveness of Ketamine therapy and the ineffectiveness of classic medication for depression, you could be saving significant amounts of money.
Ketamine therapy sessions following the introductory sessions are $850 for individuals and $500 for group sessions. Both administration sessions are followed by a post-integration therapy session, which you can also decide to take alone or as a part of a group.
How Does Ketamine Therapy Feel?
The effects of the first few treatments vary between different people and their health. Some people report they never felt so relaxed and calm while others say they haven’t felt anything.
If you are fighting depression, ketamine therapy can help you feel less alone and isolated but it can also help you gain a different perspective on your life, the condition itself, and the reasons behind your feelings, emotions, and behavior.
