OCD

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health disorder that causes unreasonable thoughts and worries (obsessions), which can then trigger unhealthy compulsive behaviors (compulsions). 

People with OCD can’t control their thoughts and behaviors around their obsessions and often develop ritualistic behaviors as a result. More than half of people with OCD have severe symptoms that disrupt their daily lives.

Traditional OCD treatments include prescription medications, like antidepressants and antipsychotics, alongside psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy. Unfortunately, many people don’t respond to those treatment modalities. Ketamine treatment offers another option.

Ketamine treatment is an effective treatment option for OCD and does not have the debilitating side effects of many traditional medications. Ketamine acts on the brain chemicals involved in anxiety and depression to stimulate the repair of damaged neural connections. Essentially, ketamine can help your brain to stop the disruptive thought patterns, so you won’t need to perform compulsive behaviors anymore. Most patients experience an improvement in their OCD symptoms within hours.
