Treating Depression in Fredericksburg, VA

Ketamine for Depression

Ketamine Infusion Therapy has been found to relieve the symptoms of depression in some cases within hours

KETAMINE binds to receptors in the brain that increases the amount of a neurotransmitter called glutamate that is released. This then sets off a chain of reactions within the brain that affects thinking and emotional regulation.  Ketamine can trigger a cascade of biochemical, structural and functional changes in the brain. It’s believed that ketamine works by essentially making the brain more malleable and receptive to therapy or alternate ways of thinking. Ketamine is also unique for its long-lasting benefits from just a single treatment session.
