News Release: Relief Mental Health Expands Access to Treatment: IV Ketamine Now Available in Additional Chicagoland Clinics

By February 6, 2024June 4th, 2024No Comments

Relief Mental Health, a leading provider of innovative mental health treatments, announced today the expansion of IV ketamine to multiple clinics across the Chicagoland area, including Chicago West Loop, Northbrook, Oak Brook, Orland Park and St. Charles. This expansion aims to meet the growing demand for effective and accessible mental health interventions in the region.

Ketamine infusion therapy has emerged as a groundbreaking treatment option for individuals battling severe depression, treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, anxiety, and other mood disorders. Unlike traditional antidepressants, which may take weeks or even months to produce noticeable effects, ketamine infusions have demonstrated rapid and profound improvements in mood, often within hours of administration.

“We are pleased to extend our IV ketamine services to additional clinics throughout Chicagoland,” said Susan Mueller, CEO, Relief Mental Health. “Our goal is to make this life-changing treatment more accessible to individuals who are struggling with mental health diagnoses and have not found relief through conventional therapies.”

The decision to expand IV ketamine treatment services reflects Relief’s commitment to providing comprehensive, personalized care to patients in need.

Ketamine infusion therapy offers several key benefits, including:

Rapid Relief: Ketamine has shown remarkable efficacy in rapidly alleviating symptoms of depression, anxiety, and PTSD, offering hope to individuals who have not responded to other treatment modalities.

Improved Functioning: By lifting the burden of debilitating mental health symptoms, ketamine infusions can enhance patients’ overall quality of life and restore their ability to engage in daily activities and meaningful relationships. IV ketamine has shown amazing response rates with up to 71 percent of patients reporting improvements in their condition.

Safety in Medical Supervision: At Relief, ketamine is administered intravenously in a controlled medical setting by a licensed healthcare professional, ensuring patient safety and comfort throughout the treatment process. This supervised approach minimizes the risk of adverse reactions and optimizes treatment outcomes.

Relief Mental Health remains steadfast in its dedication to promoting mental wellness and empowering individuals to reclaim their lives from the grips of mental illness. Through the expansion of IV ketamine services, the organization is poised to reach a broader demographic of patients and make a meaningful impact on the mental health landscape of the Chicago area.

In addition to ketamine, Relief offers a range of other innovative treatments for mental health diagnoses, including SPRAVATO® (esketamine) nasal spray and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

SPRAVATO®, a breakthrough medication approved by the FDA for treatment-resistant depression or depression accompanied by suicidal thoughts or actions, offers a convenient and effective alternative for patients who may benefit from a non-oral antidepressant option.

TMS, a non-invasive, medication-free brain stimulation technique, has demonstrated remarkable success in alleviating symptoms of depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and more by targeting specific regions of the brain associated with mood regulation. Using BrainsWay Deep TMS™ technology, Relief’s care is the most advanced and effective treatment available.

By integrating multiple modalities of care, Relief remains at the forefront of mental health treatment innovation, empowering individuals to achieve lasting recovery and improved well-being.
