Innovative New Treatment for Anxiety in Reno, NV

Anxiety disorder affects about 12% of the adult population and is characterized by excessive worry about present and future events. Even in expert hands, this disorder can be very difficult to treat. Many individuals find treatment options to be ineffective, leading to a life defined by the symptoms of anxiety.

Treatment for anxiety varies widely, and what may work for one individual might not be the best choice for another. Many people suffering from severe anxiety have found that ketamine therapy is the solution to their problems.

Ketamine Treatment for Anxiety

Ketamine therapy is becoming a popular anxiety treatment not only because it can offer lasting results, but because the positive effects start to relieve anxiety symptoms within minutes or hours after treatment, rather than the weeks or months that typical antidepressants can take.

Ketamine infusion treatment centers are an innovative new treatment option that can help treat anxiety or panic within hours. Though growing in popularity because of the lasting, positive results, Ketamine (an FDA-approved anesthetic) has been used to treat anxiety disorders for over a decade. If your anxiety is impacting your everyday life and making it impossible to carry out even simple tasks, it might be time to seek treatment.

Does ketamine help anxiety?

As research continues, we learn more and more about the science behind why ketamine is so effective for treating anxiety. Current studies tell us that ketamine prompts the production of the neurotransmitter glutamate, leading to antidepressant effects. This is different from other antidepressants, which instead focus on the neurotransmitter serotonin.. This then creates a chain of reactions within the brain that affect thinking and emotional regulation.

To put this in simpler terms, the brain reacts to ketamine in a way that triggers hormones that help create more positive emotions. This change can occur within minutes after a person receives their infusion, but some people may need several treatments before they experience the maximum level of benefits.

Psychotherapy & Integrated Ketamine Therapy

Ketamine Therapy shouldn’t replace clinical therapy. In fact, it is more effective when used in tandem with clinical therapy in what is considered an “integrated approach.” Fortunately, here at WellCentric, we have the advantage of collaborating with Kay Reimers MSW LCSW, our Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapist.
