Is ketamine an effective depression treatment on Long Island? Yes, and here’s what else

There are plenty of treatments out there that are designed to treat depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders. From daily anti-depressant pills to acupuncture and beyond, there are times that it just seems like there’s nothing other there that will keep depression at bay. With help from Long Island Ketamine Infusions, you can get effective depression treatment on Long Island that lasts. We also treat a variety of other conditions as well as depression, so you can keep reading to learn more about how we can help you.


Treating depression is our primary goal. Patients who come see us with depression often have cases of chronic depression, treatment-resistant depression, and even postpartum depression. Our treatment of IV ketamine works in treating any level of depression because it quickly and effectively blocks certain receptors that cause symptoms of depression. This means that you won’t have feelings of hopelessness, extreme sadness, or even suicidal ideation.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

While ketamine has proven to be an efficient treatment on its own, it can be paired with talk therapy as a method of treating OCD. The relaxing effects of ketamine help to relieve compulsive tendencies within 10 minutes then don’t return to baseline levels until about seven days later. We often use ketamine to help patients enjoy long-term relief from their OCD symptoms.

Bipolar disorder

Those with bipolar disorder can speak of the efficacy or lack thereof associated with many drugs on the market. While some have proven to be effective for patients, many come with severe side effects that can lead to a discontinuation of the medication. IV ketamine, on the other hand, has shown to be effective in treating depression and suicidal thoughts associated with bipolar disorder.


Anxiety is often the result of an excessive response to some form of stimulation. This can be anything from a social situation to stress in everyday life to your work life. Chronic anxiety can lead to or be the result of other health problems like heart disease, diabetes, or chronic pain. With the calming action of ketamine, patients can get sustainable relief from triggers as well as treat the respiratory problems that can come with an anxiety attack.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

While there’s often a specific event that leads to PTSD, it can be associated with other conditions like anxiety and depression. Relaxation brought on by ketamine is both effective and sustainable as the effects can linger for several days even after the primary medicinal effects wear off. Patients can achieve long-term relief after a series of six infusions.

Aftercare therapy

By pairing ketamine infusions with talk therapy, you can reach a point where you enjoy lasting relief from your symptoms. Thoughts and feelings of self-harm, sadness, hopelessness, anxiety, and others will go away. You’ll find that you have an improved mood and overall state of mental wellbeing.
