Ketamine Assisted Therapy
To Help With
Drug & Alcohol Addiction
Substance abuse recovery rates following inpatient rehab are as low as 5-10% depending on the type of treatment and aftercare received. After detox, Ketamine assisted therapy has been shown to be beneficial for those who are part of a comprehensive addiction treatment program. With a strong support system and guidance to breaking familiar behavior patterns, sobriety rates climb to 75-80% success.
Fight addiction by connecting. The opposite of addiction is not abstinence – it’s connection. Based on the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), approximately 20.1 million people in America aged 12 and older have a substance use problem (SAMHSA.gov). Almost half of those individuals (8.2 million) have a serious mental illness (SAMHSA.gov). The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry reports that one in three adults who struggle with drug and alcohol abuse also suffers from depression.
There are indications that the overuse of legal and illegal drugs may be a side-effect of the self-medication of a variety of mood disorders in order to numb and manage their symptoms. Alcohol is the most widely abused substance of those with a substance use problem (approx. 75%)
Once a person has completed a rehab program and is free from drug/alcohol use for 28 days, ketamine can play a role in the ongoing healing process. We can help guide you to a deeper connection with “that which is greater than yourself”.
Treatment Resistant Depression, PTSD, severe anxiety, and drug and alcohol addiction have all been theorized, up until recently, to simply be due to chemical imbalances in the brain. But it’s much more complicated than that. Newer research is looking at the electrical signaling of the brain that impacts neurotransmitter concentrations and the role of inflammation on the brain. Ketamine’s ability to “re-boot” the brain and stimulate the production of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is believed to impact neuroplasticity. This neuroplasticity is what can allow a person to break a repetitive cycle long enough to have a chance to do the impactful work that can put a person on a new path to living. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNsIiq-5354
