Ketamine is a type of anaesthetic used to manage pain in animals and humans. Its quick effects and wide availability make it an incredibly popular substance in party culture. Ketamine is classed as a dissociative, causing feelings of detachment from reality. Experiences can vary from overwhelming euphoria to abject terror. The line is very fine, as is the propensity for addiction.
The ketamine rehab program at The Hader Clinic is designed to help addicts overcome ketamine addiction safely. Taking place at our private facilities, our programs are comprised of different therapies and costs determined on a case-by-case basis. We work with patients to find freedom from addiction with solutions that work for them.
The true effects of ketamine addiction are not as noticeable as one may assume. However, they can be incredibly damaging to the life of an addict.
Like many other substances, the chemical appeal of ketamine can manifest in psychological dependence on the drug. Ketamine works on the opioid and dopamine receptors in the brain and restructures them to work in favour of the drug.
Physical symptoms of withdrawal aren't as widely studied, but addicts may feel exhaustion, nausea, loss of motor skills, decreased cardiovascular performance, and hearing loss.
The psychological side effects are far more dangerous, and can result in:
The more unstable a user becomes during ketamine withdrawal, the more likely they are to hurt themselves or others. Fortunately, The Hader Clinic understands and knows how to treat ketamine withdrawal. We employ a multidisciplinary team to address all sides of ketamine withdrawal in safety and security.
Due to its prevalence in medicine and veterinary work, ketamine is widely available. People from all walks of life use ketamine. There is very little to identify a "ketamine addict". You won't see hordes of ketamine users shuffling the streets looking for a fix. You'll see them at bars, pubs, clubs, festivals, workplaces, or in their homes.
Ketamine addiction has nothing to do with intelligence or common sense. Addiction is a disease that affects all kinds of people. With increased use of ketamine, addicts tend to use more to get the desired effect. This practice encourages a great dependence on the substance — one that is inescapable for people with the disease of addiction.
Try to see addiction as an illness rather than a choice. This is how we treat addiction at The Hader Clinic — by looking at all sides of the illness and treating them in tandem, holistically.
For many addicts, treatment never ends. Ketamine addiction is a lifelong battle against relapse, one that is marked with missteps and difficulty. But it does get easier. Here are some ways to keep free of ketamine addiction following rehab:
Relapse from ketamine rehab is not a good thing — but it's not a bad thing, either. Relapse is a sign that some element of the treatment is working as well as it could. An addict may not be responding to treatment effectively, or there could be avenues of treatment that have not been considered.
Look at relapse as a small speed bump on the road to a healthier, fuller life. At The Hader Clinic, we offer a complete Outpatient Relapse Prevention program to help users stay clear, even after they have left our facilities.
