KETAMINE INFUSION THERAPY
Life Stone Counseling has set the gold standard for comprehensive mental health treatment in Utah by providing evidence-based Psychotherapy, Medication Assessment and Management, and Ketamine Infusion Therapy. By encompassing all these elements of mental health treatment, we are able to create a unique continuum of care unlike any other Utah clinic- that means your therapist, prescriber and infusion physician are collaborating on your treatment, allowing for less time spent in treatment, reduced patient costs and better results.
WHAT IS KETAMINE INFUSION THERAPY?
For over 50 years, Ketamine has been among the most widely used anesthetics in the world. Now low-dose Ketamine Infusions are being recognized as one of the biggest breakthroughs in the treatment of mental health challenges, such as depression, PTSD, anxiety, pain, and drug resistance to traditional medications developed to treat these issues. Research is showing that Ketamine Infusions seem to work faster and better than traditional medications for mental health challenges and pairs very well with therapy.

Ketamine treatments are given through IV infusion and are administered and monitored by our medical director who is a board certified anesthesiologist.

Most people notice some relief of symptoms in one to three sessions. Some people will need more infusions (usually six) to experience the full benefit of Ketamine infusion. Ketamine therapy for depression provides safe, effective long-term relief without the negative side effects associated with antidepressant medications.


WHAT TO EXPECT WITH YOUR KETAMINE INFUSION EXPERIENCE

THE SPACE: Our state-of-the-art facility blends luxury conveniences and cutting-edge medicine. The infusion space, which includes recliners, warmed blankets, dimmed lights and music create a spa-like, calming experience. Our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible.

INTAKE: At or before your arrival to our facility, you will complete paperwork to provide information on your health and treatment history, as well as complete a mood assessment. Once in our infusion room, your doctor will also review this information with you and happily answer all of your questions. He will then give you a brief physical exam, including taking your vital signs (standard procedure).

INFUSION: Once you are comfortable, a individually-tailored dose is administered via an IV. You are welcome to have a support person present in the room if desired. If you are under the care of a therapist in the facility, you are also able to schedule to have them present during your infusion, as they can offer grounding techniques and be there to assist you in processing the experience. (We recommend that your guests avoid conversing with you unless you initiate conversation.)

The typical Ketamine Infusion is 45-50 minutes long. In this clinical setting and with the correct dosage, most experience a "deep relaxation" and for some, mild dissociative effects. If at any time these are bothersome, the doctor can reduce dosage or stop the infusion, as these effects wear of fairly quickly.

AFTER YOUR INFUSION: After your infusion, the drug generally wears off quickly, but you may stay and rest until you are ready to go home with your support person.You will need someone to drive you home from your infusion and to stay with you for 24 hours after your infusion. You also cannot drive for 24 hours after the infusion, but you can return to other normal daily activities as you feel able.
