Here at Advanced Ketamine Care, AKC, we offer hope for those who have been unable to find relief from their depression and anxiety disorders through traditional treatments.

Innovative Approaches Lead to More Effective Psychiatric Treatment

IV Ketamine therapy is revolutionary. It can significantly diminish the symptoms of depression and anxiety disorders in 70% of patients that receive the treatment. Several key scientific studies have shown IV Ketamine to dramatically reduce symptoms for those who have suffered, sometimes for decades, with depression and anxiety disorders. These key studies include a study from the National Institute of Mental Health Study, as well as a study conducted at Yale University. Ketamine has been used as an anesthetic since the 1960s, and while not yet FDA approved for the treatment of depression, it has been safely used in operating rooms for decades.

  • Utilizing technology also provides a variety of tools for a multifaceted treatment plan.
  • Genetic testing is used to analyze an individual’s DNA in order to gain a clearer understanding of what medications would be most affected with the least side effects based on genetic makeup.
  • Patients use a secured cellphone app, Mood Monitor, to help track their daily moods as well as guide and coordinate care.
  • Tele-psychiatry provides patients with busy schedules a secure and convenient way to continue their care from home or work.
  • Evolving technology offers new insights, information, and tools to maximum successful treatment for our patients.

What Is Mental Illness

Mental health is our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Mental illnesses are conditions that affect a person’s thinking, feeling, mood or behavior, such as depression, PTSD, anxiety, or bipolar disorder.

It can be occasional or chronic (long lasting) and can seriously impact someone’s day-to-day activities and impair relationships. According to the National Institute for Mental Health 1 in 5 adults lives with mental illness. Up to 14 million people who suffer, yet only about half receive treatment. Of those who receive care 30% are treatment resistant and do not respond to traditional treatments. Often times those who suffer from depression or anxiety disorders have been unable to fully engage in life and have longed for a pain free life. Simply put, they want their life back.
