At TAC we offer ketamine infusions and ketamine assisted CBT as an adjunct treatment options for patient with treatment resistant depression or acute suicidal thoughts or actions. Although intravenous ketamine has not been FDA approved, current research indicates that it provides an important secondary approach to a significant number patients who may have exhausted more traditional means. Although it is likely that there are multiple mechanisms at play scientists believe that ketamine works by modulating the activity of a brain chemical called glutamate. This chemical then stimulates the growth of new synapses in that brain that help alleviate depressive symptoms. Although ketamine is not a treatment for everyone, it has been a life changing option for many.
