Columbus Ohio therapy for OCD w/IV ketamine

Ohio, don't let OCD hold you back anymore--find a Happier You

 

Columbus Ohio based IV Ketamine Clinic for OCD treatment:


How Ketamine Affects and Treats OCD Symptoms:

While low dose IV ketamine infusion therapy is not currently approved by the FDA for treatment of OCD, it is being used off-label by many clinics and physicians throughout the US, each seeing positive results for many patients. Outcomes vary, but anecdotal reports include patients being able to use public toilets, shake hands with strangers, and shrink intrusive thoughts after receiving IV ketamine treatments.


Depression and OCD:

There have been multiple studies regarding the efficacy of ketamine in the treatment of clinical depression. The mental health community is excited by the potential of safe IV ketamine to alleviate symptoms of OCD. Because depression often goes hand in hand with OCD, it stands to reason that medical professionals are seeking an understanding of what ketamine can do for this disorder.  


IV ketamine infusion therapy may very well be the drug needed to help you break the hold of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and find a happier you.


How Does Ketamine Treatment for OCD Work?

Exactly how Ketamine treats mental health disorders (including OCD) are still being researched, however, current understanding is that Ketamine binds to receptors in the brain that increases the amount of a neurotransmitter, glutamate, is released. This will then set off a chain of reactions within the brain that affects thinking and emotional regulation.


To put this in simpler terms, the brain reacts to Ketamine in a way that triggers hormones that help create more positive emotions. This can occur within minutes after a person receives their first infusion.  However, at least two treatments are recommended before deciding if you should complete the full course of treatment.  After two treatments nearly all patients become aware that this either has worked, or has not.  


If a full course is warranted, another four infusions (total of six) would be completed, each 48-72 hours apart.  This treatment protocol give you the longest lasting effects of the infusions and can dramatically reduced the time between a completed treatment plan and the need for future "touch-ups".


Prevention

There is no surefire way to prevent OCD symptoms from returning post-treatment. We find that by combining low dose IV ketamine infusion therapy with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) produces the best overall results and outcome.  Some people with previously treatment-resistant OCD have experienced great success with the advent of Ketamine Infusions, an innovative new treatment option for a Happier You.
