Depression can take over a person’s life, and there’s an estimated 14 million Americans who struggle with this debilitating condition every day.
Most of these people continue to suffer because their pain from depression is overwhelming, and it can be very difficult to find treatments that work. Luckily, there’s an advanced medical solution for this common problem.
Ketamine infusion therapy for depression, anxiety, and PTSD can provide rapid and effective relief for up to 75% of patients who receive it. Dr. Patrick Sullivan and his team at Initia Nova provide this innovative treatment so their patients can start enjoying life again.
“As an emergency room physician for the past 10 years, I’ve seen so many people who struggle with mood disorders and substance abuse without many effective treatment options,” says Dr. Sullivan. “And these are good people who just need a break and need something that works for them. I decided we had to do something better.”
Personal treatment plans are designed for every patient.
“Each of the clients here at Initia Nova presents with such a unique set of circumstances,” says Mitchell Cogan, LMFT, LCADC. “As a result, we like to design treatment programs that can be either short-term or long-term, depending on the presentation. The programs consist of individual, couples, and family counseling. One of the other features we provide here at Initia Nova is we also work with your insurance company to see if there’s any possibility of getting a portion of the treatment covered.”
“I joined the team here at Initia Nova to develop a groundbreaking new treatment for PTSD and mood disorders,” says Rena Beyer, MSW, LCSW. “In private practice, I noticed that a lot of my clients were struggling to talk about their traumatic experiences, their pasts. Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy helps them to talk about what’s going on, feel better. Their mood improves. The goal with it is to get people off their antidepressants and utilizing healthier coping skills.”
“Ketamine is a very safe medication that has been used medically for many decades. It’s most commonly used in the operating room for anesthesia and in the emergency room for procedural sedation for children,” says Dr. Sullivan. “In our office, we use low-dose ketamine infusions to treat depression, anxiety, OCD, and PTSD. It can also be quite effective for chronic headaches and fibromyalgia. And I’ve combined it with other medical therapies to successfully treat addiction to alcohol and heroine.”
“With ketamine assisted psychotherapy, individual counseling, medications to treat addiction, neurofeedback, and EMDR, Initia Nova is one of the most comprehensive treatment teams for depression, anxiety, and PTSD on the east coast.”
