RALEIGH, NC – 6/29/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Ketamine Treatment Centers was founded in 2011 by Dr. Steven P. Levine, a board-certified psychiatrist. He opened his first center in Princeton, New Jersey, and he has pioneered a protocol for the clinical use of ketamine infusions to treat severe depression and anxiety disorders. He has directly supervised many thousands of infusions, and has helped establish similar programs across the country and around the world.
Ketamine was first developed in the 1960’s as a safe medicine for anesthesia during surgery. Since the 1990’s it has been developed as an alternative to typical depression and anxiety medications that have many side effects and take a long time to work. Ketamine has the potential to help the majority of patients achieve significant relief within hours of a first treatment. In a recent interview with the Washington Post, Dr. Levine described the experience of a ketamine treatment, “[It] seems to leave something indelible behind,” he says, “People use remarkably similar language to describe their experience: ‘a sense of connection to other people,’ ‘a greater sense of connection to the universe’.”
Dr. Levine has partnered wtih Dr. Anand Dugar, a board-certified anesthesiologist, combining the expertise of psychiatry and anesthesia to provide unrivaled, world-class care for the treatment of major depression, bipolar depression, post-partum depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), fibromyalgia, and pain syndromes. The office in Raleigh, NC opens June 20th, 2016, joining the existing offices in Princeton, NJ, Denver, CO, and Towson, MD. New offices in Philadelphia, PA, Chicago, IL, New York, NY, Fairfax County, VA, Potomac, MD, White Plains, NY, and Cincinnati, OH are scheduled to open in the next few months.
