Most people would rather hide from change than embrace it. When we do, unseen opportunities aren’t realized. Change is one of the most powerful tools you have as you go forward in life, if you embrace it.

Important Information as to what makes us different

How we’re different:

  • We administer ketamine through IV which is more effective and can be controlled better than other methods of administration.
  • A therapist is with the patient before, during and after the ketamine session, providing immediate processing of the experience.
  • We use an evidenced based grounding technique
  • Each ketamine session is an individual experience in one of our state-of-the-art rooms.
  • A Nurse Practitioner monitors vital signs at all times.
