At Mindquest Labs, our treatment programs have been designed based on scientific research and the wisdom passed down through generations of traditional psychedelic practices. All of our programs are made up of an initial psychiatric consultation, who will advise which program track the patient will follow.
Depression is a major mood disorder that affects more than 264 million people across the globe and ranks as the leading cause of disability worldwide. Even more alarming, the problem seems to be steadily increasing among people of all ages, particularly teens and young adults.
Besides being seriously debilitating, major depression often comes with a graveside effect — thoughts of suicide that can lead to attempted suicide without timely intervention and help.
At Mindquest labs, we know that traditional depression treatments have helped many people find lasting symptom relief. But we also know that the conventional approach doesn’t work for everyone, and it doesn’t always deliver the kind of rapid relief that’s most needed in times of major distress.
That’s where ketamine comes in. Find out how this fast-action treatment for major depression has become a game-changing solution for the patients who need it the most.
Thanks to the prevalence of PTSD among the military and victims of sexual abuse and assault, a vast number of studies have been conducted in order to determine ketamine’s viability as a consistently effective treatment. The consensus has been that ketamine therapy resulted in a rapid reduction of symptoms, which lasted over the course of medicine itself.
One of the most extensive studies done, which took place at Mass General Hospital, shows that over 70% of PTSD patients who had resisted other treatments found positive results with IV ketamine infusions. This has been the most common result in other studies, providing a wide range of support for the use of ketamine as a treatment for PTSD.
Addiction is a disease that changes the way you think and feel. It’s common to start using alcohol or drugs because of the pleasurable sensations they create in the brain. But, over time, your body can start to crave more, which can lead to substance abuse disorder.
You might have substance abuse disorder if you prioritize the substance at the cost of your quality of life. People with addictions often withdraw from society, struggle in work or school, and experience changes in their relationships with friends and family.
Addiction can ravage your life, but because your brain and your body depend on the substance, kicking substance abuse can be challenging. Trying to quit a substance you’re addicted to can cause intense symptoms of withdrawal and cravings, and many people can’t quit on their own.
Anyone can develop a substance use disorder, but certain factors may increase the likelihood of addiction. Genetics, mental health, and your environment all play a role. If you think you have a substance abuse disorder and you're ready to change your life, book an appointment with Dr. Itzkoff.
Ketamine is a drug that’s been used in medical settings for anesthetic purposes since the 1970s. In recent years, clinical studies have found that ketamine infusions show promise as a method of treating substance abuse disorder.If you’re suffering from substance abuse disorder, ketamine infusion therapy could be an option for you. Dr. Itskofff and our team are here to help you find a path to recovery from your addiction, whether you’re dependent on alcohol, heroin, cocaine, or another drug. Kicking substance abuse requires dedication and a clear mind. Ketamine therapy may reduce your cravings, which can help you stay on track and motivated. It may also enhance your experience with psychological therapy, which is another important element of substance abuse recovery because the infusions temporarily alter neural functions in the brain.
