Ketamine for OCD, Stress-related and Substance Use Disorders
Stress-related disorders include PTSD, OCD, Burnout syndrome and Substance Use Disorders. Traditional treatments are few and fraught with long delays before the patient experiences a reduction of symptoms, and incomplete symptom relief for the majority of patients. Treatments for burnout and substance use disorders are few, variably effective and center around long periods of counseling and frequent recurrence.. Ketamine infusion therapy has been shown to provide rapid and robust improvement in the symptoms of many stress-related disorders, particularly when used in concert with cognitive behavioral therapy and other forms of counseling. Ketamine is also rapidly effective in decreasing the symptoms of depression and anxiety associated with these conditions.
