Ketamine for Substance Abuse
Ketamine is a powerful tool that assists in the maintenance of sobriety from drugs and alcohol. Post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS) is the emotional and psychological withdrawal phase that occurs shortly after physical detoxification.
Addiction is a result of the brain and body consuming a substance and the ensuing chemical reaction. Overtime, dependency forms, and the bliss that you felt when consuming a substance can become harder and harder to maintain, causing you to turn to higher doses.
With Ketamine binding to the NMDA receptors, it can help block signals from being sent to the brain, which gives the brain an opportunity to reset old connections and forge new ones. Ketamine infusions active significantly reduce PAWS, and the cravings that usually result in a return to substance abuse in addition, it helps to quickly treat depression, anxiety, and pain, which frequently go hand-in-hand with addiction.
