Intramuscular Ketamine

Feel like yourself again and discover rapid healing ketamine therapy.

Initially developed as an anesthetic, ketamine has been rediscovered as a breakthrough treatment for depression and anxiety disorders when administered at low doses in combination with therapy. This treatment is designed to unlock therapeutic pathways as part of a broader care plan.

A simple, straightforward process
1. Intake & Preparation

You may be referred to Heading for ketamine treatment by your psychiatrist, or reach out to us directly for a consultation to determine your eligibility. Ketamine is used to treat depression, anxiety, OCD, and PTSD.

2. Consultation

Visit with us virtually or at our treatment center for your consultation. During this 1-hour session, you and a Heading clinician will discuss your history, current symptoms, and treatment options, including ketamine. 

3. Personalized Treatment

Ketamine treatment typically involves several sessions over the first three weeks — then maintenance sessions at a frequency determined by you and your Heading clinician. During each session, you’ll be administered a low-dose of ketamine by intramuscular (IM) injection. Your provider will be present to support you before, during, and after treatment to help you integrate the experience.

The science behind ketamine

Ketamine targets specific brain receptors to promote new, healthy connections between nerve cells. Its effects include pain relief, relaxation, and more flexible thinking.


Over time, mental and physical illnesses put stress on the body, which leads to damaged synapses in the brain. Ketamine helps regenerate these neural pathways, creating the conditions for therapeutic growth and change.


Ketamine treatment, in combination with therapy and lifestyle changes, may  help support new modes of thinking, feeling, and mood to improve quality of life and aide in healing from long-standing and hard-to-treat stress disorders such as treatment-resistant depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

Ketamine has been shown to be an effective treatment for a range of conditions, including depression and anxiety, but also PTSD, OCD, chronic pain, migraine, and fibromyalgia. Your provider can determine if you are a good candidate for Ketamine treatment, and whether this may be an optimal treatment for you.
