More than 40 million adults in the United States suffer from an anxiety disorder, and many don’t find adequate relief from conventional treatments. Our team at the Ketamine Clinic of Spokane treats various anxiety disorders, including:
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
When you have GAD, you experience constant, excessive worry about everyday things, such as work, health, and social relationships. The fear and worry consume hours of your day and may cause you to feel physical symptoms, like headaches and exhaustion.
Social anxiety disorder
Social anxiety disorder causes an intense fear of social situations, often due to worry about humiliation. This may cause you to avoid social interactions, including going to work or attending classes.

It’s normal to experience some of these symptoms from time to time. When you have an anxiety disorder, these symptoms persist even though you’re not in danger.
What is ketamine infusion therapy for anxiety?
Ketamine has been safely used as an anesthetic since 1962. Recent research shows that ketamine is a fast-acting and effective treatment for various psychiatric and neurological conditions, including anxiety.
This innovative treatment works on the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in your brain. Some mental health patients experience significant relief from a single, 40-minute ketamine infusion. Depending on your needs, multiple treatments may be necessary.
