Referral Criteria: Clients must be enrolled in Providence Care’s Mood Disorder Service to be eligible for the IV ketamine treatment.
Type of Service: Ketamine is a fast-acting anesthetic that’s being used to treat people with depression who have not responded to other treatments. The ketamine is given in a very low dose through an intra-venous (IV) line. Ketamine has been around for decades but is now being used for adults with treatment resistant depression.
