WellCentric Health Addresses Safety of Ketamine Therapy in Light of Recent Celebrity Tragedy

In response to the recent news about the tragic passing of Matthew Perry and the involvement of ketamine and buprenorphine, WellCentric Health wishes to provide clarity and reassurance regarding the safety and efficacy of ketamine therapy for mood disorders.

Ketamine, a medication known for its therapeutic effects, has been gaining recognition for its role in treating various mood disorders. At WellCentric Health, we are committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our patients. We understand the concerns that may arise from the news of Matthew Perry’s death, particularly regarding the use of ketamine. However, it is crucial to differentiate between the clinical use of ketamine in a supervised healthcare setting and its misuse.

The doses of ketamine used in mood therapy are significantly lower compared to those used for anesthesia or found in unsupervised settings. Specifically, the therapeutic doses are approximately one-tenth of the anesthesia dosage and significantly lower than the levels reported in Matthew Perry’s case. It is important to note that Mr. Perry’s health complications were further complicated by the concurrent use of buprenorphine, a factor that likely contributed to this tragedy.

At WellCentric Health, ketamine therapy is administered under strict medical supervision by trained professionals. Our protocols ensure that the dosage and environment are tailored to each patient’s unique needs, maximizing safety and effectiveness. The controlled clinical setting at WellCentric Health is designed to provide a secure and supportive atmosphere for treatment.

We would like to emphasize that when used correctly and under professional supervision, ketamine therapy remains a safe and valuable option for those struggling with mood disorders, chronic pain, PTSD, and many other conditions. Our team of medical experts continues to monitor and adhere to the highest standards of care and safety protocols.

We encourage anyone with concerns or questions about ketamine therapy to reach out to us. Our dedicated staff is available to provide information, support, and guidance.
