Suicidal Thoughts Treatment

Innovative New Treatment For Suicidal Thoughts

Looking for suicidal thoughts treatment in Glenwood Springs? Ketamine is commonly used as an anesthetic for humans and animals alike. When taken in smaller doses, however, this versatile medication has been shown to decrease the symptoms of depression and suicidality.

Researchers believe that ketamine interrupts the NMDA neural receptors in your brain, which help control memory function and neuroplasticity. This essentially rewires your brain and weakens certain triggers that you associate with suicidal ideations.

Ketamine for Suicidal Thoughts

After just one 45-minute ketamine infusion therapy treatment, many patients report feeling calmer and with improved moods within just 48 hours. Results vary so the team at Apex Ketamine Therapy will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan that helps combat suicidality.

While shown to be an effective treatment against suicidality, ketamine infusion therapy is not a replacement for counseling and therapy. It is important to seek help from multiple sources.

The literature for depression shows a 70% success rate. Individual clinics have seen higher rates, because they have seen increased efficacy with increased dosing.
