Abstract (Summary)

Major depression disorder (MDD), also known as clinical depression, is classified as a type of affective disorder (also called mood disorder) that goes beyond the day's ordinary ups and downs. It is a serious medical condition and important health concern. In the US there is an estimated 16.1 million people living and suffering from major depressive disorder in a given year, the majority of whom may not adequately respond to initial antidepressant treatment and psychotherapy. OC Ketamine Therapy will introduce a new form of treatment for individuals suffering from major depression to the Orange County (OC) region. Ketamine infusion therapy is known to be effective and efficient in dramatically reducing symptoms of major depression. Our OC Ketamine Therapy practice will provide ketamine infusion along with nutritional guidance and psychotherapy (“talk” therapy) to care for our patients. Our an innovative approach to treatment for depression will empower individuals to make informed healthcare decision while offering a unique treatment option. Our goal will be to care for the whole individual throughout their journey with us in receiving treatment. Our dedicated staff of nurses, receptionist, marriage family therapist or psychologist, nutritionist and anesthesiologist will work together to serve our patients and their families.
