Ketamine: A Revolutionary Treatment for Mental Health

September 29, 2023 by Steve Suntala

Who Can Benefit From Ketamine Treatments?

For those patients who have not responded to more traditional mental health treatments, ketamine treatments and Spravato present a promising new opportunity to find relief from their crippling symptoms.  Recent clinical studies have shown that Ketamine IV infusions are effective for 70 percent of patients with treatment resistant conditions. If prescription medications and therapy has not provided you relief, Ketamine could be the best treatment for you.

Ketamine Works Fast!

Ketamine is such an exciting treatment option, because of how quickly it acts. Many patients experience significant relief from their symptoms within their first two weeks of treatment. More importantly, the healing is shown to expand with subsequent treatments. Compared to psychiatric medications and therapy that often take months or longer to be effective, Ketamine can provide rapid relief to those who have been suffering for years. 

Backed by recent scientific evidence and professional experience, we know incorporating ketamine in treatment plans currently provides the best chance of achieving mental wellness. There has not been a widely adopted new treatment for mental illness in over 30 years and far too many patients have not found relief from existing treatments.  


Ketamine Infusions Have a High Success Rate

In treatment resistant populations, Ketamine has consistently shown to be 70% effective in significantly reducing depression and other psychiatric symptoms. Ketamine has even been shown to be 60% effective with patients who have not responded to traditionally prescribed ECT treatments. Ketamine is still new as a psychiatric treatment and is currently limited to those who have failed with at least two treatments. But for those who have been searching for a treatment that will finally work for them, Ketamine is a miraculous new option.  

Ketamine Infusions Can Provide Lasting Healing

Like any medical treatment, Ketamine has varied effects on patients. Ketamine does more than just silence or numb symptoms, it actually repairs existing and grows new neural pathways in the brain. For some patients it is such a potent healing experience that their psychiatric symptoms remain in remission for years. For the majority of patients, the drastic symptom relief of initial treatment plan can be sustained with a single booster infusion once a month, a couple times a year, or any frequency in between. At New Pathways our goal is for you to not need to come back!
