Consider Ketamine Therapy For Anxiety, Depression, and PTSD
Ketamine Therapy is an emerging and surprisingly effective form of therapy. Ketamine Therapy is a therapy that uses an IV to introduce the drug into the body in brief sessions. Under the supervision of a healthcare professional, Ketamine is used to help people address the symptoms of their anxiety, depression, PTSD, and beyond. The treatment is highly effective for most people.
Ketamine is a strong drug that when used properly can help the brain reform its neurons. This kind of treatment is especially helpful for patients that haven’t found success with other drug therapies. Sessions traditionally last between forty five and sixty minutes and are repeated many times. The Ketamine treatment is FDA approved, and when patients go for treatment they are administered the drug in low and controlled doses at an outpatient facility. It is a great solution to help your loved one deal with persistent mental health conditions they can’t control.
Look at Dialectical Behavior Therapy If Your Emotions Feel Too Strong
Another non-traditional form of therapy that might help a patient is Dialectical Behavior Therapy, or DBT. DBT is a kind of therapy based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Dialectical Behavior Therapy’s focus is on helping patients manage strong emotions that otherwise control them. The primary users of DBT are people who suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder, also known as BPD.
However, Dialectical Behavior Therapy has been proven effective for those not suffering from BPD. The focus on any form of Cognitive Behavior Therapy is to create changes in your patterns of behavior, instead of exploring feelings. As a result, most of DBT is results focused. With Dialectical Behavior Therapy, you or your loved one will see a gradual change in behavior over time that’s trackable.
Many people who feel as though they are unable to get a grasp on their mental health find this measurable work of their progress comforting. So for its focus on noticeable shifts in patterns of behavior and treatment of strong emotions, it is a great alternative.
Check Out Group Therapy For Communal Bonding
Lastly, if traditional treatment options haven’t been a great fit for you or a loved one, consider group therapy. Group therapy is a traditional but proven tool for gaining insight. Group therapy gives you the opportunity to see the troubles of others who share similar experiences or problems. For some people finding that others share their problems is healing because they feel less alone.
Effective group therapy is led by a mental health professional and is a great tool used on its own or in conjunction with other therapies.
