Ketamine Treatment for OCD
Obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD, can have a dramatic impact on your personal and professional life. Disruptive behaviors and thoughts can make it difficult to live a productive, happy life. Treatments with medications often come with negative side effects. If you want to find relief from OCD without the use of daily medications, ketamine treatment may be an option. At CLEAR Wellness Group, we offer ketamine infusion therapy at our clinic in Chicago.
Ketamine has been used as an anesthetic for over 50 years, but the last two decades have had ground-breaking results for mood disorders, like OCD. Sessions of ketamine infusion therapy have been beneficial for those with depression, anxiety, PTSD and OCD, helping those suffering from certain mood disorders get relief from their conditions. Many patients with OCD and other mood disorders are able to stop taking medications that cause unwanted side effects. Up to 75% of patients on ketamine therapy report improvement of their disorder after a two-week series of treatments.
OCD Ketamine Infusion Therapy
Ketamine treatments for mood disorders, like OCD, include six sessions over two weeks. Each patient’s treatment is personalized for their disorder and unique medical history. The treatment itself lasts 45 minutes, but the session lasts about 1.5 hours with preparation and recovery. We have private treatment rooms where you can relax and undergo your treatment, while being carefully monitored by our medical staff.
Ketamine treatment for OCD can have a dramatic impact on symptoms and quality of life. Most patients require 3-4 sessions before they begin noticing a difference in their disorder, but some patients find some relief after one session. Ongoing therapy and booster sessions can offer long-term management of OCD symptoms.
