Many people who experience anxiety or depression may turn to alcohol to try and escape their problems. It’s a vicious cycle–which can actually make these conditions worse.
For years, rehab has been the go-to treatment for people suffering from alcohol addiction and other substance use disorders. The results have been disappointing, with most patients struggling to maintain sobriety after completing treatment. Ketamine-assisted therapy is a new, research-based treatment for people struggling with alcohol consumption that is proven to outperform rehab.
Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is a devastatingly serious condition, affecting approximately 285 million people around the globe and responsible for more than 5% of all deaths. After showing promise for some years, ketamine-assisted therapy is finally becoming available to sufferers of AUD, with highly encouraging results.
