KETAMINE FOR OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER
OCD affects between 2 and 3 million American adults and half a million youth. Severe OCD can often cost people jobs, relationships and alter the course of one’s life. Treatment is essential. OCD is a type of anxiety disorder that causes obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are persistent, intrusive thoughts and worries that are negative and distressing.
While everyone has irrational worries or double-checks that they locked their door or turned off the oven from time to time, the thoughts and behaviors of OCD are constant, distressing, and disruptive. When unmanaged, the condition can cause a cycle of obsessions and compulsions that interferes with regular activities and relationships.
How is OCD treated?
Traditionally, OCD is treated with a combination of medication and therapy. However, the antidepressant medication used to treat OCD can take several weeks or months to build up enough in your system to reduce your symptoms. Antidepressants may also cause side effects.
At INNER JOURNEY WELLNESS, Prudy Carter provides Ketamine Therapy for OCD. While most patients have a series of treatments, you may have a noticeable reduction in your symptoms after just one treatment, which can provide the mental clarity needed to focus on therapy.
