Ketamine is a dissociative medication that has a 50-year history of safe use as an anesthetic agent in medical procedures. Recently, ketamine has shown great promise as an off-label treatment for Treatment Resistant Depression (TRD), PTSD, OCD, substance use disorders, and other psychiatric diagnoses. A therapeutic dose is a fraction (10% – 25%) of the doses used in anesthesia procedures.
Ketamine creates a powerful dissociative experience that has been called the best currently available proxy for psychedelic medicine. Ketamine is now being used to speed psychotherapy and enhance neuroplasticity (positive brain changes), and Wholeness Center has been at the forefront of this cutting-edge treatment since 2016.
