Treatment for Ketamine Abuse

Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic medication that is widely used in veterinary practices to sedate animals for surgical procedures. Unfortunately, Ketamine is often stolen from veterinary offices and reformulated in clandestine labs to produce a powder form of the drug that can be snorted or consumed orally to produce euphoric effects. Treatment for Ketamine abuse can be found throughout the United States offering those who become accustomed to the use of this drug a place to safely escape the perils of potential addiction.

Methods of Treatment

Ketamine Abuse

Working with a therapist can help you understand and overcome Ketamine addiction.

Various methods of treatment can be used to help those who are abusing Ketamine. Most of the time, a combination of counseling and therapy provide the most effects means of treatment for those who have been abusing Ketamine. The premise is to first figure out why the individual is taking the drug and what void they are attempting to fill by using this substance.

Counseling is available in both individual and group formats often including family members, other recovering addicts or even friends in the treatment process. While group therapy is ideal for many people who abuse ketamine, for those who use the drug to cover up or mask personal emotions that they are not comfortable sharing with others, individual therapy is often more well suited.

Residential treatment is generally not required for those who are abusing Ketamine. Most people do well by entering into an outpatient program of treatment that provides tailored care focused on helping them to overcome the desire to use the drug. This method of treatment for ketamine abuse is generally combined with support in a program such as Narcotics Anonymous or a similar group.
