OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER

In choosing this link, you or your loved one may have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Here at SKC, we truly understand your suffering, and our mission is to help you emerge from the overwhelming oppression of this illness.

OCD is characterized by intrusive thoughts that produce anxiety (obsessions), repetitive behaviors that are engaged in to reduce anxiety (compulsions), or a combination of both. This cycle becomes difficult to break. Even in expert hands, this disorder can be very difficult to treat, and treatment options are often ineffective, leading to a life in the shadows of your symptoms.

Ketamine and its metabolites have been shown to have unique and diverse effects, binding to multiple receptors in the central nervous system, inhibiting some and activating others. This often provides relief within an hour after an infusion. Symptom control is often sustained for many weeks following an SKC Induction Series.

About 50% of patients will have a substantial improvement in their OCD symptoms after Ketamine Infusion Therapy. If you also have Substance Abuse Disorder, this condition is quite likely to improve as well. We work closely will all referring physicians to facilitate communication with the goal of SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCING YOUR SYMPTOMS, and transitioning you to SKC Maintenance Therapy for sustained relief.

Following the completion of an SKC Induction Series, an SKC patient then engages in ongoing SKC Maintenance Therapy at a custom frequency that provides the level of relief to optimize daily function in one’s life.

If OCD has become overwhelming for you, please take the next step towards the new and symptom-controlled life you deserve by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Watson or Dr. Frey to determine if you are a candidate. We will work in concert with your regular physician, should you have one, to ensure you have the best chance of success with Ketamine Infusion Therapy.
