Who May Benefit From Ketamine-Assisted Therapy?Ketamine Therapy is highly effective in treating the symptoms of chronic mood disorders and other mental health issues. That can be serious, recurrent, disabling, and in some cases, life-threatening.

Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles, led by Dr. Steven L. Mandel, provides ketamine infusion treatments to patients from all over the country as well as around the world in the beautiful city of Los Angeles.

Common conditions where Ketamine Infusion Therapy can be beneficial are as follows:

  • Depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Chronic anxiety
  • Bi-polar disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD
  • Chronic Pain

Medical treatments for such conditions are generally restrictive due to their side effects, gradual onset of action or lack of efficacy. Ketamine has been used as an agent for anesthesia for more than 40 years, but its use as a supplement to psychotherapy as well as other medications is relatively new.

Research-based evidence suggests that psychotherapy complemented by ketamine therapy can rapidly and safely reduce the symptoms of depression as well as other mental health conditions, including “treatment-resistant” cases.

Ketamine usage in medicine and psychiatry is in tandem with a broader movement to re-introduce psychedelic drugs into medicine. But these research studies may take many years to develop viable treatments available to those in need.

However, Ketamine Infusion Therapy is available at present and offers many of the same potential advantages without the accompanying adverse effects.

Treatment Process

Patients have who already been diagnosed with one or more of the above conditions, are good candidates for Ketamine Therapy.

At Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles, treatment sessions are overseen by a qualified medical professional. You will be monitored, cared for and guided through the infusion process. Following  ketamine infusions, it is encouraged that patients  continue their treatment with their other providers for maximum relief and benefit.

Standard low-dose ketamine IV treatment protocol at Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles includes six treatment sessions for the initial course.


Ketamine for Treatment-Resistant Depression

A large body of research now highlights that ketamine can effectively produce quick and sustainable anti-depressant effects in individuals suffering from treatment-resistant depression.

The advantages of the treatment often establish within a few hours to two or three days after the initial treatment. The benefits include a lift in mood and faster progress in psychotherapy sessions in the weeks following the Ketamine Infusion Therapy.

Dr. Steven L. Mandel and his team provide ketamine infusion treatments for s patients from Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Orange County, California, and nearby areas.
