Ketamine Infusions

Intravenous (IV) Ketamine excels in precision, speed, and consistency. IV administration of ketamine ensures rapid, predictable relief at a controlled dosage. 

By providing higher bioavailability and reliable absorption, infusions result in a more uniform and effective experience. The accurate dosing reduces the risk of adverse reactions while offering a profound, lasting effect with improved patient comfort.

Ketamine opens doors to altered consciousness, disrupting unhelpful thought patterns and allowing for positive change. When combined with psychotherapy, it becomes a tool to access your inner self and realign with your core values.

Rapid Onset and Precision

IV infusion allows for precise control over the dosage and provides a rapid onset of the drug’s effects. This controlled administration ensures a more predictable and steady absorption of the medication into the bloodstream, leading to a faster response.

Efficacy and Duration of Effects

IV ketamine often leads to a more profound and longer-lasting effect due to the controlled delivery and immediate onset of action. This can result in more sustained relief from symptoms.

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy with Infusions

We now offer and recommend the use of ketamine infusions in combination with our psychotherapy program. 

What makes IV the preferred method for ketamine?

The highest standard for ketamine administration

Intravenous (IV) administration of ketamine is often considered superior to Intramuscular (IM) or Sublingual (SL) methods due to several reasons

Bioavailability and Consistency

IV administration offers higher bioavailability compared to IM or SL routes. This means a more consistent and reliable absorption of the drug, ensuring a more uniform and effective response in the body.

Dosing Accuracy

IV administration allows for the most accurate dosing, enabling healthcare professionals to adjust the dosage as needed during the infusion. This precision is crucial in achieving the desired therapeutic effects and minimizing the risk of adverse reactions.

Patient Experience

While personal experiences may vary, IV infusion is typically better tolerated by patients in terms of discomfort and side effects compared to IM injections, which can sometimes cause muscle soreness, and SL administration, which may have a bitter taste or produce inconsistent effects.
