What Are Ketamine Infusions?

Ketamine infusions are procedures for those with various depressive disorders such as treatment-resistant depression (TRD), mood disorders, PTSD, or clinical anxiety. During the process, patients are hooked up to an intravenous IV where ketamine is slowly and gradually dripped into their system over 45 minutes. Once the ketamine infusion treatment session is complete, patients will be monitored for the next hour to ensure they are responding well to the therapy. Their next appointment will be arranged for them, going through approximately eight sessions over four weeks. 

Clinical research has shown the efficacy of ketamine for depression and mood disorders. It goes against the traditional antidepressant models for major depressive disorders and treatment-resistant depression and provides an advanced approach to managing and recovering from these disorders.

Ketamine Infusions for Mental Health and Addiction Treatment

Ketamine therapy has proven to be highly effective in the treatment of mental health disorders as well as drug and alcohol addiction. When traditional antidepressants have failed, ketamine infusion therapy has genuinely been effective. 

Ketamine treatments have proven effective for a variety of mental health conditions, such as :

  • Stress disorders
  • Mood disorders
  • Bipolar disorder 
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder OCD
  • Ketamine Treatment for PTSD
  • Treatment for depression 
  • Major depression 
  • Reduces suicidal ideation
  • Chronic pain management and various pain conditions  
  • Ketamine for anxiety 
  • Postpartum depression 

When patients have tried other forms of treatment for their depressive disorders and are still experiencing the symptoms and effects of their condition, they may be looking for a truly effective treatment. Ketamine therapy has a high success and efficacy rate in clinical trials, and many of our patients report feeling alleviated of their symptoms after just one ketamine session.

Does Insurance Cover Ketamine Infusions?

When patients are eligible to receive ketamine infusions for stress disorders, mood disorders, major depression, or most other types of conditions, they often ask, are ketamine infusions covered by insurance? Insurance does not cover the cost of Ketamine infusions. However, WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab offers a payment plan that can help cover ketamine infusions. This financing option allows patients to pay for the treatment over time. 

Other Payment Options for Ketamine Infusion Treatment 

WhiteSands Alcohol and Drug Rehab has an in-house payment plan where patients can break up the cost of the ketamine infusion therapy and pay over time. The ketamine nasal spray version, which is FDA approved, is covered by most insurances. Coverage for ketamine can be discussed with our admissions team, as we offer a financing option for patients to consider. Patients can also pay out-of-pocket as we offer self-pay rates for those who can fund their therapy independently. 

Get in touch with our admissions and intake team to learn more about payment plans and financing options for either ketamine IV therapy or ketamine nasal spray. The most important thing is that you get help for your disorder or addiction, and our team will do everything they can to ensure that financing is possible so you can receive life-changing treatment.
