According to the New York Post, “US sales of alcoholic beverages have risen 55 percent, according to Nielsen data…and National online sales of alcohol were up 243 percent, far outpacing store sales.”

As the continued stress from COVID-19 and the riots breaking out in city streets create fear in people, there has been a massive rise in drug and alcohol relapses among those who are in recovery. Mental health professionals have been speaking out about ways to cope with the increasing stress that is rampant in our Nation. Isolation, depression, and anxiety act as triggers for those in recovery, especially now since Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings have been canceled for the past three months.

If you have battled addiction in the past and are finding yourself in relapse due to the overwhelming social situations, there is help. Ketamine Healing Clinic of Los Angeles helps people withdrawal from alcohol and drug dependence to that they can get sober.

Ketamine therapy is a focused and specific treatment that acts quickly to help people who suffer from addiction to disassociate the alcohol-related memories that may trigger them to drink or abuse drugs in the first place. Research shows that associating “happy or pleasurable” feelings or memories with alcohol or drugs will trigger their desire to drink or use drugs more. Any good feeling associated with a restaurant or bar, going to a concert, a happy memory, or even a particular smell can often cause people to fall into relapse.

Breaking an addiction is difficult. It can take months, or even years, to fully break free from the bondage of alcoholism or drug abuse. You do not want to allow a relapse to undermine all of the time and effort you put into beating this mental health issue.

At Ketamine Healing Clinic of Los Angeles, we are here to help. Our ketamine treatments help break the cycle of alcohol addiction and sustain sobriety. In addition, these treatments have been proven to temper mood swings and anxiety that accompany withdrawal and relapse.

If you or someone you love needs help battling alcoholism, drug abuse, or relapse, contact our practice today. We are here for you.
