SUBSTANCE USE

In choosing this link, you or your loved one may have Substance Use Disorder, with or without Chronic Pain and Mood Disorder. This condition often starts as a result of using substances to dull the pain or reduce the madness in their life. One then becomes enslaved to that substance over time with little or no control, and cannot stop, even as their life is falling apart. Here at SKC, we truly understand that addiction is truly challenging for the soul, and seems at times impossible to overcome.

Substance Use Disorder is incredibly prevalent and is defined by being clinically and functionally impaired or distressed. Alcohol, Opiates, Tobacco, Cannabis, Stimulants, and Hallucinogens all have the ability to wreak havoc on your life once addicted. This results health problems, disability, and failure to meet major responsibilities at work, school, or home. It can dismantle one’s life if not corrected. It is often quite painful for those closest to you, who pray for change.

If you have Substance Abuse Disorder, Ketamine Infusion Therapy may allow you the power over your cravings to progress to abstinence with the help of your primary treatment team. We work closely will all referring physicians to facilitate communication with the goal of SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCING YOUR CRAVINGS, and would transitioning you to SKC Maintenance Therapy when appropriate for sustained control.

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 a reduction in cravings within an hour after an infusion. Control over these cravings is often sustained for many weeks following an SKC Induction Series.

Following the completion of an SKC Induction Series, the 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. We want to help keep you free from addiction, but this results from a strong desire to change. Ketamine has been shown to greatly help those willing to make this significant life transformation.

If Substance Use Disorder is tearing your life apart, please take the next step towards the new and substance free 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 Therapy.
