What to Expect

Our caring and compassionate staff of medical professionals will be there to support you before, during, and after your journey.

  1. Prior to your treatment, we will collect your vitals, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and blood oxygen. 
  2. Once your vitals are recorded and you are comfortable, you will have some time to get centered and set any intentions you may have for treatment.  This could be simply identifying the issue you wish to resolve with treatment.
  3. We will then administer the medicine. While you are under the medicine, you will be monitored. 
  4. Once out of the medicine, we will record any insights you may have received.  
  5. Following your treatment you will be monitored and then released to the care of a family member or friend. You cannot drive after the procedure for the remainder of the day. 

It’s normal to receive a ketamine treatment and have your thinking positively changed, however further integrating can be very helpful for the achievement of personal growth. Combining integration with the transformative experience can be a way to incorporate the wisdom gained during the experience into the thoughts and behaviors you experience every day.

Arizona Wellness center provides integration coaching, including help processing the experience through reflection, introspection, pattern mapping,  and other helpful techniques. Integration coaching often helps patients clarify the insights received during their infusion and turn them into positive actions in the real world.

Through integration coaching, patients will gain insight and actively challenge their ingrained attitudes about themselves, others, and the world. This will provide additional benefits beyond what they receive during their ketamine infusion experiences. With the help of one of our trained integration specialists, patients can expect further positive changes in their ways of thinking and ultimately throughout their lives.  Integrating the transformative experience provides additional consistency, so that beliefs, attitudes, ways of thinking, and actions can further align with the overall ketamine experiences.

Although Ketamine is FDA approved as an anesthetic, its use in treating these conditions is considered an “off-label” use and it is currently not covered by insurance.

A very high percentage of patients have success with this treatment, but as with any medical treatment there is no guaranteed relief of mental and or physical symptoms.

Patient Specific Treatments:

Treatment plans are specific to each patient. For mental health patients, it is common to do a series of six, 1 hour infusions over the course of two-three weeks.


What is Ketamine?

Originally developed in 1962 as an anesthetic agent, Ketamine became approved by the FDA in 1970 primarily as an induction agent for general anesthesia for surgery for children, adults, and animals.

Ketamine has a remarkable safety track record, hence its use in children and animals alike. Within the last few years, ketamine has been widely used as a highly effective treatment for depression, PTSD, anxiety, chronic pain, and other conditions.

Why is Ketamine Used to Treat Depression?

The use of Ketamine in psychiatry is a relatively new practice in the last few years. Many universities and medical organizations have conducted scientific research to find that many patients suffering from treatment-resistant depression,  anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder,, addiction, etc. benefit from Ketamine treatments.

In these types of patients, when Ketamine is administered at a dose significantly lower than the anesthetic dosage often produces a very positive response.

What Are The Advantages of Using Ketamine to Treat Depression?

There are three primary advantages of Ketamine treatment:

  1. Safety. Very first safety is key. All our treatments are administered under the direct supervision of a health care professionals. Side effects and contraindications to Ketamine treatments are very few.
  2. Rapid response. Unlike conventional medications that treat depression and other mental and mood disorders, patients respond to Ketamine very quickly. People who benefit from the treatment experience improvement during their first treatment. By the second or third session, treatment is definitive (compared to the several weeks or months it takes for the traditional medications to take effect).
  3. Efficacy. The success rate for those that benefit from ketamine is reported as high as 70-80%, with about 67% being the average, which is much higher than the treatment with conventional antidepressants alone.

How Long Will The Effects Last?

The effects from a single treatment typically last around two weeks. After a series of six treatments, some people could remain symptom free for several months. We also offer the option of booster shots which can be given monthly or a few times per year as needed.

What is the Recommended Course of Treatment?

A total of six treatments within a 3 month period is recommended in order to maximize the effects of Ketamine.

Starting our patients off with a six treatment regimen and increasing dosage, we are able to convert Ketamine from a medicine to a friend. Once an individual has developed a relationship with Ketamine, we are able to provide treatments as infrequently as every three months.

The repair and growth of new nerve cells over time is what can lead to long lasting improvements in symptoms. However, the total length of treatment depends on each individual’s unique circumstances.
