Obsessive-compulsive disorder, colloquially referred to as OCD, is defined as a chronic disorder in which a person has uncontrollable, reoccurring thoughts (obsessions), behaviors (compulsions), or both. Most people affected by OCD suffer from unwanted and intrusive thoughts that are long-lasting and cause them to repeatedly perform ritualistic behaviors to try and ease anxiety. OCD can be a debilitating disorder because it can continuously disrupt life. Finding the best treatment for this mental health disorder is crucial for those who want to take control of the disorder and gain relief.
One of the hardest things in finding effective treatment for OCD is that the response to medications and psychotherapy can take up to several months and can include unpleasant side effects from medication. For most patients, it takes an average of 10 weeks to see marked improvement, and patients typically experience only a 40-60% symptom reduction. At Ketamine Healing Clinic of Los Angeles, we are dedicated to helping those who suffer from OCD. If you have not found relief from other therapies, want to be free from the unwanted side effects from medication, or simply want effective relief from the anxiety, depression, and behavioral issues that come with OCD, Ketamine treatments can help.
Dr. David Mahjoubi is one of the pioneers in using Ketamine IV treatments for OCD. Most patients experience relief from their symptoms after only one treatment. The safety of this non-conventional medication and its almost nonexistent side effects have had groundbreaking impacts for those suffering from OCD, other mood disorders, and chronic pain.
At our clinic, we administer high-dosage IV treatments of Ketamine to help minimize obsessive thoughts and offer a calming effect to those with OCD. Subsequent treatments and ongoing Ketamine therapy provide long-term relief from OCD that can be maintained.
