According to ADAA, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year and growing. It's also not uncommon for someone with an anxiety disorder to also suffer from depression or vice versa. Nearly one-half of those diagnosed with depression are also diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. Furthermore, PTSD and OCD affect about 7.7 million and 2.2 million Americans, respectively.

In learning of these statistics, we became convinced that there had to be other options for this desperate population and those that serve them. We at Nova Vita Care believe the time is now to offer Ketamine Infusion Therapy as a viable treatment option for the RGV.

Ketamine therapy has been hailed in Science magazine as the "biggest breakthrough in depression research in a half century" and has provided much-needed, effective relief to those with mental health conditions and suicidal thoughts. And according to Thomas Insel, Director for National Institute of Mental Health, "Recent data suggest that ketamine, given intravenously, might be the most important breakthrough in antidepressant treatment in decades.”

Ketamine was developed in 1963 by researchers from Wayne State University and FDA-approved in 1970 as an anesthetic and analgesic agent, and is now one of the most widely used drugs in modern medicine. It has been used safely in surgical settings, including pediatric surgery, and is now being utilized to manage acute and chronic pain conditions.

Ketamine infusion can now be effectively applied as an off-label treatment for various chronic, treatment-resistant mental health conditions, including depression, alcoholism, substance dependencies, PTSD, OCD, and other psychiatric diagnoses. Leading medical centers including the Mayo Clinic, Yale University, and Kaiser Permanente have launched ketamine clinics across the country and Nova Vita Wellness Centers are now bringing this incredibly effective and safe treatment to your patients.
