For so long, we have been under the heavy blanket of pain, depression, anxiety, or PTSD. Some of us can’t remember what it feels like to be “normal.” Since our ketamine infusions, things have changed; the blanket has been lifted! Ketamine therapy is working, so now what?
Ketamine Wellness Centers (KWC) the largest ketamine therapy provider in the United States, announces two new partnerships with the Veterans Affairs Community Care Networks (VA-CCN) of Illinois and Minnesota.
