Our Mission


New Pathways Clinic always puts the needs of our patients first. We exist because we believe the current mental health epidemic in America requires new tools and a bold new vision of what mental health care looks like. We believe that merely reducing symptoms of conditions is not an acceptable treatment plan. We strive for an outcome of mental wellness for all of our patients.

Backed by recent scientific evidence and professional experience, we know incorporating ketamine in treatment plans currently provides the best chance of achieving that outcome. 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.
