Data from the National Institute on Drug Abuse shows that millions of individuals in America have already battled or will battle addiction to drugs, with 85% of them relapsing within one year of treatment. A recently launched program is hoping to lower this number significantly. The program, which was launched in Austin, Texas, will be administering ketamine therapy to eligible patients.
The center, which has been christened Within, plans to combine psychedelic medicine with functional wellness and holistic healing in the treatment of addictions and mental disorders, including depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and substance abuse. Ryan Saldanha, a resident of Austin, revealed that he’d undergone ketamine therapy after relapsing for a number of years. He explained that receiving psychedelic therapy gave him hope.
Luke Carver, who was also addicted to a number of substances before he tried psychedelic therapy, shared his story too. Carver stated that the administration of psychedelic therapy such as ketamine made the brain’s neuroplasticity increase significantly, which gave patients a chance to reprogram their brains and develop new patterns and habits in their lives.
Within medical director Eric Miller stated that he’d watched individuals go in and out of the hospital for years, being prescribed more medications, yet their conditions did not improve. He noted that psychedelic therapy prompted a shift from coping to healing.
Jennifer Zuckerman, a nurse practitioner who recently relocated to California to help with the program’s launch, echoed what Miller stated. She revealed that having worked in private practice for years, she had observed that people were prescribed more and more drugs in the course of their treatments. Zuckerman noted that despite the presence of a lot of tools and teachings from modern medicine, a lot more improvement ad support was needed, particularly when it came to mental health.
In the recent past, we’ve seen interest in the use of psychedelic therapy increase significantly, catching the attention of legislators, researchers and medical professionals alike. Toward the end of 2021, the Dell Medical School at the University of Texas at Austin launched the Center for Psychedelic Research and Therapy. The center’s objective is to look into the use of psychedelic drugs as treatments for a range of mental health conditions.
Additionally, Harvard Law School launched the Project on Psychedelics Law and Regulation under the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology and Bioethics. This project’s objective is to examine the social, legal and ethical implications of psychedelic therapeutics, commerce and research.
