The Assessment and Scheduling Process

New Pathways Clinic will conduct a mental and physical health assessment prior to treatment, to ensure your infusions are safe and ethical. We believe in making this process as painless as possible and offer free consultations to you over the phone or in person before performing an assessment.  

Request free phone consultation any time or call 440-973-8400 during normal business hours. 

For the assessment, we will give you access to digital copies of the necessary forms, so no printing, faxing, or mailing is required! When you are ready to start your ketamine treatments, we promise to always schedule them within a week. 


The Treatment Plan

Ketamine infusions are a unique medical treatment. While many patients experience relief after the first and subsequent treatments, most patients do not receive the full benefits until the sixth treatment. Each treatment results in more neuron growth and repair in the brain and studies show that a minimum of six treatments is needed to for ideal results.  

We offer two and three-week treatment plans, each consisting of six infusions.  

Like any other medical treatment, patients respond differently to ketamine infusions. By the end of a patients treatment plan, about 20% respond so well that they don’t feel the need for further treatment. Another 50% of patients experience significant or complete relief, but require booster infusions to sustain the effects. Lastly around 30% may have gotten some benefit but did not experience significant relief.

We offer customized booster infusion plans based on patient response, ranging from every month to once a year. 

The New Pathways Ketamine Treatment Experience


Upon arrival for your scheduled treatment, you will be promptly seated in your own personal treatment room. 


Ketamine treatments are most successful when the patient is relaxed and without distraction. With this in mind, each treatment room has a comfortable reclining chair and is private, quiet, and homey. 


Our medical professionals will ensure you are comfortable and ready for your experience. There is never a rush to start treatment if you are feeling anxious or need time to decompress. 


Based on thousands of patient’s feedback, we recommend listening to calm and comforting music for the length of the treatment. We recommend selecting a playlist or album prior to each session. Please bring your own device and headphones.  


Patient feedback also suggests that wearing eye masks can prevent visual distractions and we will provide them upon request.  


Your vitals will be monitored before and throughout the treatment for your safety. Nora Finnegan has not witnessed a medically serious side effect from ketamine in over 1,000 treatments. 


When you are ready, your nurse will start your IV. Ketamine is given through an IV over a precisely scheduled time of 40-60 minutes, that varies by dose.

This allows the nurse to have complete control over the experience and to enhance the cognitive effects of the treatment. It can be stopped at any time upon request. 

With Spravato, you will be shown how to self-administer Spravato with the nasal spray application.


When the Ketamine infusion is completed, you will be given around 30 minutes to relax and re-orientate yourself from the experience.  

With Spravato, you will remain under observation for 2 hours after the nasal application.


When you are ready and it is safe for you to leave the clinic, we will discharge you to be driven home by your treatment companion.
