Below, Dr. Motley tells us more about this groundbreaking treatment and what to expect.

What is ketamine and what can it treat

Initially known for its anesthetic and pain-relieving properties, ketamine has been used in operating rooms and clinical settings since its development in the 1960s. Over the last ~20 years, it’s been studied in the mental health field as a potential alternative to antidepressants and other medications. Ketamine is legal for medical purposes, but it’s not legal for recreational use or to sell without a license.

Ketamine can be used to treat the following conditions:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • PTSD
  • Chronic pain
  • Migraines

What to expect during your first treatment

Each treatment room at Mindwell is private and has an extra comfortable seat if you want to bring a trusted person with you. The IV is administered in the form of a steady drip (similar to any other IV treatment you may receive) and your knowledgeable MindWell physician will monitor your vitals during treatment, checking in throughout the process. The infusion portion lasts ~40 minutes, and each client is given a ~20-minute rest period after the treatment.

“The impact of ketamine therapy on mental health is not just clinical, it’s deeply personal,” says Dr. Motley. “To see patients experience profound breakthroughs after years of struggle is a testament to the untapped potential of this treatment.”

Most patients are scheduled for six ketamine sessions over a two-week period, with the second session scheduled a few days after the first. After the initial six sessions, the patient will be assessed to determine if additional treatment is needed.
