Orange County Mental Health Treatment Center
D’AMORE AND KETAMINE THERAPY
In order to stay at the vanguard of mental wellness recovery, D’Amore Healthcare now implements ketamine treatment as one of our pharmacotherapy tracks. In recent studies, there has been an increasing amount of compelling evidence that low doses of ketamine can bring about dramatic and lasting improvement in a number of mental health conditions. When administered as a supplement to one of our personalized treatment plans, ketamine therapy can put you in the position to bring balance and autonomy back to your life.
PARTNERING WITH D’AMORE HEALTHCARE
The expert staff at D’Amore Healthcare takes your entire medical and psychological history into consideration. We then create a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs as a patient, with modalities ranging from individual and group sessions to our signature “Build Me Up” program. Much like our safe and comfortable mental health treatment facility, a properly administered and supervised course of ketamine therapy when appropriate can increase the efficacy of these strategies. This track can be an effective alternative for the treatment of chronic conditions that have been resistant to conventional approaches.
WHAT IS KETAMINE?
Ketamine is a medication first approved for use in 1970 and has since been used primarily as an anesthetic. Studies conducted in the 2000s, however, showed ketamine to be an effective and rapidly-acting anti-depressant when administered in sub-anesthetic doses. If our clinicians believe that ketamine would be effective for you, you could begin to notice an improved mood within 4 to 24 hours after infusion therapy.
