PTSD Awareness Month

The Truth About Ketamine Therapy for PTSD | Insights From a Doctor

At NueMind Ketamine & IV Wellness, we believe that everyone deserves to feel and live their best—treatment-resistant patients aren’t simply out of options. That being said, we realize that there’s a lot of misinformation out there about treating PTSD with ketamine. 

In light of recognizing PTSD awareness month in Houston, we’re dedicated to shining a light on common misconceptions that may deter people from potentially life-changing treatments. Here’s what our founding physician, Dr. Ayesha McCoy, has to say about common misconceptions. 

Anxieties About Safety & Addiction 

Many patients’ fears about ketamine therapy are rooted in ketamine for recreational use. 

When you come to a doctor for ketamine therapy, you don’t have to worry about feeling “high,” becoming addicted, or ingesting anything dangerous. Misusing ketamine in recreational settings is where addiction poses a threat, especially when mixed with other drugs. 

While ketamine has earned its negative reputation outside of the doctors’ office, it’s important to understand that the same risks don’t apply—this is a medical treatment. 

Our doctors will be with you every step of the way to monitor your responses and adjust your ketamine IV as needed to help ensure the safest, most comfortable experience. Rest assured that in the case of an emergency, although unlikely, our experienced physicians are here to help.

Worries About Triggers

Studies show that when administered and guided by a licensed professional, patients had no recollection of traumatic events while receiving ketamine therapy. 

Controlling your environment is key to maximizing the effects of ketamine, which is why “bad trips” occur when the drug is used recreationally. In our clinic, we’ve taken great pains to create a safe, intimate, and inviting environment to set the proper tone for your session. Our doctors will guide you through your treatment, helping you achieve the proper state of mind.

From reducing mental stressors and anxiety to repairing trauma-induced brain damage, we’re committed to removing any intimidation surrounding ketamine therapy. Beyond shedding light on this renowned solution during PTSD awareness month in Houston, we’re truly changing lives with it, too.
