How Does Ketamine Treat Addiction?

Addiction is a mental and physical dependence to a drug, substance, or activity. This leads to a chronic disease that affects more than 19 million people in the U.S. alone. A serious issue with addiction is that the substance takes control and guilt sets in. Once this occurs, it leads to anxiety and eventually depression, and an ongoing use and guilt process until stopped.

Ketamine therapy has been shown to give significant relief from these symptoms for extended amounts of time between treatments. By restoring neurological pathways, patients see a marked improvement in the ability to withhold from unhealthy urges.

More Information About Addiction & Substance Abuse

In 2017, alcohol and substance abuse affected an estimated 20.7 million people age 12 and older. Only 4 million people received treatment, or about 19% of those who needed it.

Alcohol & substance abuse includes both dependency and addiction components, which aren’t the same thing. Dependency means that your body goes into withdrawal when alcohol is taken away, while addiction affects how your brain processes the alcohol. As you consume, your brain begins to count on the pleasurable effects and rewires itself so that you need to consume more in order to achieve the same effect. Addiction essentially hijacks your brain, which is why addiction is often referred to as an obsession, while dependency hijacks your body.


Addiction is considered a highly treatable disease, and recovery is attainable. About 10% of American adults who are at least 18 years old say they are in recovery from an alcohol or drug abuse issue.

Substance Abuse Disorders (SUD) affect over 20 million Americans aged 12 and over.

Most common disorders were related to marijuana and prescription pain relievers.
