Approximately 30% of American adults with a depression diagnosis are unable to find relief through traditional medications. This means that 2.8 million people across the country are currently struggling with treatment-resistant depression. Many of them also suffer from co-occurring substance use disorders. Fortunately, there are alternative approaches to the treatment of these conditions. Recovery Without Walls offers ketamine-assisted psychotherapy: an innovative remedy for even the most severe depression symptoms and substance use disorders.
Ketamine Therapy for Depression
Many people find themselves trapped in a cycle of substance abuse, primarily due to their mental health. Conditions like treatment-resistant depression (TRD) can cause individuals to misuse drugs and alcohol in an attempt to alleviate the hopelessness, sadness, and low self-esteem associated with TRD. To get unstuck, something has to change.
Recovery Without Walls decided to look at this issue from a new perspective. We already know that mental health care should be multifaceted. To achieve optimal results, patients should receive both medication and talk therapy. If traditional medications are ineffective, most practitioners just give up. We decided to combine our therapeutic services with ketamine, a revolutionary, FDA-approved drug with incredible healing potential.
Through sophisticated use, we have seen dozens of patients break the relapse cycle, eliminate suicidal thoughts, discontinue high doses of opioid pain medications, alleviate chronic pain, and overcome lifelong trauma.
Who Qualifies for This Program?
Recovery Without Walls offers ketamine-assisted psychotherapy to those with substance use disorders who are stuck in a cycle of relapse due to co-occurring conditions. These dual diagnoses may include treatment-resistant depression, trauma, suicidality, chronic pain, and anxiety.
