The Ketamine Infusion Process
Ketamine therapy is a revolutionary step in the treatment of mental illness and chronic pain. It has been shown to be very effective for patients suffering from these conditions because it can give relief without any side effects like other medications might have.
At Western Slope Ketamine Clinic we pride ourselves on providing ketamine infusions that are always safe and comfortable with no negative consequences or discomfort experienced by our clients. We offer free assessments so you know what your options are before deciding if this is an avenue worth exploring.
We’re thrilled to have you as a new patient! When we schedule your first visit, our experienced team will take the time to review all of the information about your mental and physical health.
After you’ve eliminated these preliminary steps, we’re ready to arrange your infusion treatments. We request that our clients have a pre-arranged ride home from the treatment center, as driving a car is not allowed within the first several hours of the treatment. Individuals are encouraged to invite a member of the family, close friend or spouse to go along with them to treatment.
On the day of your session, you’ll consult with one of our anesthesia care providers who will take you through the treatment process in our state-of-the-art facility.
When you are at Western Slope Ketamine Clinic, it’s time to relax, we will sit you in a comfortable easy chair, provide you with earphones to listen to music, or you can watch TV while you receive your treatment. Each infusion session lasts 45-60 minutes and is carefully observed by an anesthesia professional.
After your session is done, you’ll be led into the spa-like recovery area where our medical staff can evaluate you before you’re clear to go home.
In the days following treatment, you may already feel improvements in your mood and symptoms. But, we provide our patients with continuous support to ensure that the benefits of ketamine therapy are long-lasting and meaningful.
Our staff will remain in touch with you for periodic phone assessments at your convenience. We are beyond happy to remain a resource to our previous patients for tips on recovery and preserving a healthy life.
