The team at Freedom Ketamine Treatment Centers was excited to see comedian Nick Kroll announce that he uses ketamine infusion therapy. In his May 19 tweet, he used a tranquil video of happy seals to describe the feeling of ‘when the ketamine therapy hits.’
Kroll is popularly known as one of the creators of Big Mouth, an animated adult comedy series on Netflix depicting the pains of puberty. In it, depression and anxiety are depicted as villainous characters.
In response to his tweet, many of Kroll’s followers echoed his sentiments about the efficacy of the therapy. Some of the tweets included:
“So glad you posted this!! I've tried 13 medications, before being on the 6 meds I currently take. All just for my mental health. I have been on ketamine infusions for 6 or 7 months. I recently had serotonin syndrome & had to decrease them. And I finally feel like I can breathe!!” -@RonicTQ
“Ketamine helped my depression too!” -@countmaxpain
“Ketamine IV infusion therapy saved my life. 14 months of treatments and talk therapy with a trauma practitioner. I am a whole human, better than before.” -@lisapaz42466003
What therapy is Nick Kroll talking about?
Ketamine infusion therapy can be helpful for patients who experience treatment-resistant depression, suicidal ideation, PTSD, substance abuse issues, or chronic pain. This option is not only available to celebrities. Our practice, located in the greater DC region, offers ketamine infusions under the supervision of board-certified physicians. Before beginning treatment, our team will conduct a screening and review your medical history to ensure you’re a good fit for treatment, and then discuss your treatment options with you. Most patients benefit from a series of six infusions over the course of a few weeks.
At our offices, infusions are given in small doses over about 40-minutes. We encourage all of our patients to continue on with traditional talk therapy and other treatments they may already have in place.

We have offices in Rockville, Bethesda, Columbia, Reston, Vienna, and Marshall, and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
