Down With Depression: Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles Is Saving Lives Using IV Ketamine Infusion Therapy
Nine out of 10 Patients are No Longer Suicidal After Receiving Treatment at Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES, December 6, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles is making a measurable impact on the lives of hundreds of individuals struggling with depression and suicidality. Using IV Ketamine Infusion Therapy, the father/son-run clinic is proving an outstanding 80 percent success rate for patients seeking relief from depression and other mood disorders. They are literally saving lives in the process; 90 percent of patients being treated for suicidality at the facility are no longer suicidal. Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles is the country’s leading provider of this promising therapy, offering individuals a fast, safe, and highly effective alternative to prescription antidepressants, Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT), and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).
Led by Dr. Steven L. Mandel, a master of clinical psychology and top board-certified anesthesiologist with more than 35 years of experience, Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles has perfected the use of IV Ketamine Infusions for the treatment of chronic pain, depression, and various mood disorders. Stepping away from the “one-size-fits-all” approach adhered to by most treatment centers, Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles custom-tailors each patient’s treatment plan on a session-by-session basis for maximum results. Many patients report feeling better within the same day of receiving treatment.
“Ketamine is an extremely safe general anesthetic that has been used in the medical space for more than 50 years,” explains Dr. Mandel. “Research and our experience has proven that when used intravenously, as it is done at Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles, the therapy is able to rebalance certain functions in the brain, leading to a waterfall of neurological events that often result in fast antidepressant effects. While prescription antidepressants often take upwards of six weeks to take effect — if they work at all — our custom-tailored IV Ketamine Infusion Therapy can begin showing benefits in as little as an hour after treatment, even in treatment-resistant patients.”

Treatment at Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles includes a series of six 50 to 55-minute long IV infusions over a two-week period. Using highly specialized digital infusion pumps, Dr. Mandel and his team of experts can fine-tune each individual patient’s rate of medicine and dosage in real-time for optimum results.
“Nearly a quarter of all Americans aged 18 and older are affected by depression in their lifetimes, and close to 40,000 will die from suicide this year alone. What’s more; for each person who commits suicide, the CDC estimates an additional 25 people attempt it — that’s almost a million individuals who try to take their own lives each year. Plus, there are still millions more who are thinking about or are planning suicide,” says Dr. Mandel. “With ketamine infusion therapy, we are truly saving lives. At our clinic, individuals being treated for depression and mood disorders often report a 50 percent reduction in symptoms, and nine out of 10 patients battling suicidality do not end up committing suicide.”
With severe depression and other mental health problems reportedly on the rise, especially among young adults and teens, Ketamine Clinics of Los Angeles’ high success rate is showing much-needed promise of a better tomorrow.
