Unlock Relief and Renewed Hope with Cutting-Edge Ketamine Treatment in Baltimore, MD

Ketamine is a well respected, FDA-approved anesthetic used for over 60 years. Its “off-label” use has gained popularity for treatment resistant depression, anxiety, PTSD, and suicidal ideations due to it’s powerful effects: the ability to produce rapid relief with very high success rates (70% or more in treatment-resistant individuals).

Ketamine does not only produce rapid relief. It also helps heal the underlying causes leading to the symptoms someone is experiencing, through improved brain function and often a perspective change.

Ketamine can also cause mild elevation in heart rate and blood pressure, which we can treat with medications, if needed.
