Transcend in-home services involve a team of highly skilled clinicians coming to you or a loved one’s home to administer a series of ketamine treatments for a variety of mental health and pain conditions.
When you are depressed, anxious, or in chronic pain, leaving your home to receive treatment can be challenging. These challenges are especially true as you age, and you may even have elderly loved ones who struggle to leave the house because of disabling psychological and physical conditions.
The Transcend Health Solution? Psychotherapeutic and pain management services delivered in the comfort and safety of your home.
Transcend treatments are centered around a powerful and long-used medication, ketamine, that can reduce depression, diminish anxiety, and reduce pain. Ketamine, when administered in relatively low doses, is a powerful antidepressant and can repair damaged pain receptors.
Transcend in-home services involve a team of highly skilled clinicians coming to you or a loved one’s home to administer a series of ketamine treatments for a variety of mental health and pain conditions such as: depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome, Migraines, Fibromyalgia, neuropathic pain, and cancer related pain (among others).
If you or a loved one need relief from psychological and pain conditions but prefer treatment from the safety and comfort of home, then call us or book an online intake appointment now.
Your health is worth the time.
Almost all side effects are short-term and immediately subside after the infusion is discontinued. They may include: elevated blood pressure, increased heart rate and nausea. Nausea, elevated blood pressure and heart rate are easily managed through IV medications during the session should these arise. Most patient who do not eat for three hours prior to the session will not experience nausea.
Long term, the only documented side effect is Bladder Cystitis, but this was achieved from recreational dosing that is administered in far greater volume and frequency than in a medical setting. No medically facilitated Ketamine clinic has ever reported a patient contracting this disorder under appropriate care.
During your medical intake, we will determine if you need to alter your medication regime prior to treatment. There are only a few medications that should be altered prior to initiating treatment. For instance, stimulant medications, benzodiazepines, and medications like Lamictal may need to be held or adjusted prior to treatment.
Ketamine is an extremely safe medication, but it may cause nausea in a small percentage of patients. For this reason, we request that you don't eat or drink anything within 3 hours of your infusion time.
After a ketamine infusion, it is normal to feel somewhat tired or loopy for several hours. It would be unsafe to drive after a session so we do require that you arrange a family/friend to pick you up or utilize a taxi or other ride service.
At Transcend, it is our goal to have this treatment be a short term intervention for you. The majority of our patient will reach sub clinical levels of distress after an average of 5-6 sessions. The majority of our patients discharge after these session and do not require any form of maintenance therapy.
Because you are taking a sedative, YOU CANNOT DRIVE AFTER THE TREATMENT. You must arrange for someone to pick you up, otherwise you will not receive a treatment.
For chronic pain treatment, it is more difficult to keep baseline pain levels down and flair-ups without maintenance infusions ongoing. The majority of patients with chronic pain will do sessions every 3-6 weeks to keep the pain reduced.
You can expect to be at the clinic for approximately 2 hours. There are many factors that influence the length of the infusion but most patients will receive a 35-45 minute ketamine infusion. Your Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy trained therapist and medical provider will be by your side throughout your entire time in the clinic.
