Consider using ketamine infusion therapy to help with depression. There is much information regarding ketamine available for research online. There is some discussion about ketamine being addictive and i'm sure that is true if used recreationally. Ketamine is used every day all across the united states by medical professionals at infusion centers to safely treat mental suffering. I have received ketamine infusions and I know others who have as well. For me or any loved one suffering from depression, I would not hesitate to try or help them try ketamine therapy. Ketamine provides a way to go inward and requires a few hours from beginning to end. It has been used to treat depression since at least 2012 and there are ketamine infusion centers all across the united states. A typical protocol is 6 infusion sessions given over the course of 2 - 3 weeks. Each session requires about 2 hours at the infusion center and depending upon a host of circumstances can require a range of additional time to resume normal activities from 0 hours to 4 hours. Expect to pay $400 to $600 for each infusion. Check out the vox.com article in link below for a first-person account of how ketamine can provide relief from depression. I have also directly seen ketamine provide relief from depression. It does not always work but for a number of people it has beautifully changed their lives.

I have personally tried ketamine and the experiences provided some much appreciated clarity.
