Understanding Substance Abuse

Substance abuse is defined as the excessive use of any type of psychoactive drug, whether that’s alcohol, prescription drugs, or illegal drugs. Substance abuse leads to chemical dependency, which can cause an incredible range of challenges, from increased resistance and ever-larger doses/quantities to withdrawal from social and recreational activities and psychological damage.

Ketamine infusion therapy offers hope for those locked into the cycle of substance abuse. It acts within the body to reduce cravings by altering the brain’s neural connections and to enhance the experience with traditional psychotherapy. Ketamine reduces the chance of relapse while helping patients focus on building the skills they need to reclaim their lives.
