What people are saying about our ketamine program
We Prefer Natural Treatments
Wherever possible, the most natural treatments will be recommended. We regard medications as a catalyst for deeper work, and not as a complete stand-alone treatment.
Emphasis on Psychotherapy
Various medical studies have shown its superior effectiveness versus medication treatments in all but the most severe situations. The synergy of medication and psychotherapy can provided an effective combination early in recovery.
Cultivating Lasting Well-Being
Full-blown psychiatric disorders are most often caused by unmitigated chronic stress. We will help you develop the skills to be able to face challenges and overcome them, while we are addressing current symptoms.
