Why Ketamine Infusions?

Why Ketamine Infusions?

The ketamine infusion therapy offered by Freedom Ketamine Treatment Centers is an innovative option that provides rapid relief. Studies show that individuals who suffer from mood and pain disorders feel fast, long-acting results from infusions. 


Does ketamine actually help with depression? Yes. In many cases, patients experience relief in hours compared to the traditional months or years that some medications and other treatments options can take.

Safe & Effective Treatments

Our practice offers ketamine treatments as simple outpatient infusion procedures. Following an intake consultation to determine the appropriateness and safety of the treatment, patients are guided each step of the way by a physician. Those who respond will typically continue with a series of infusions. The safety and effectiveness of ketamine has been demonstrated in multiple research studies.

Compassionate Care

We’re working to provide compassionate, meaningful, and advanced treatment for depression and pain. We are committed to improving the functionality and quality of life for our patients. Ketamine treatments may free you from depression, OCD, PTSD, anxiety, CRPS/RSD, fibromyalgia & other chronic pain conditions.


Our Founder and Medical Director is Aubrey Verdun, MD is a double-board certified anesthesiologist and pain management physician with extensive experience treating patients with ketamine. Dr. Verdun believes ketamine is most effective long term when coupled with psychotherapy, and is passionate about mental healthcare.
