Ketamine Addiction Treatment
While it is true that Ketamine addiction does not make the news as much as heroin, cocaine, marijuana or even prescription medication, Ketamine addiction is more common than most people think, especially within the club or party scenes – its recreational properties stem from its hallucinogenic properties. The growth of Ketamine use worldwide has resulted in an increase in the number of people looking for effective Ketamine addiction treatment in Thailand.
Millions of people suffer from Ketamine addiction worldwide, which negatively affects their lives. Without question, Ketamine can be acquired quite easily in some countries due to its therapeutic applications (with more research into its application currently underway). Unfortunately, this has also increased the number of people that misuse the powerful drug.
There are countless benefits to attending a residential rehab facility if you’re suffering from ketamine addiction. Some of these include:
The only thing a client in residential rehab needs to worry about is getting better and working on their recovery. Meals are cooked, rooms are cleaned, laundry is done and activities are scheduled. This leaves clients free to truly focus on what matters most.
In many cases, quitting substance use without changing environments is incredibly difficult (sometimes impossible). Residential rehab gives ketamine addicts the opportunity to be far from the people, places and events that trigger ketamine use in their daily lives.
Both types of counselling are essential to successful ketamine addiction, and both will make up a large part of a client’s daily routine and activities, while in treatment.
Staying at an addiction treatment centre 24 hours a day means more opportunities to incorporate several types of therapies – which would simply be unavailable or time-consuming if engaged with, as an outpatient client. Such therapies include art therapy, psychodrama, yoga and physical fitness, among others, which work together to speed up the process of addiction recovery and help secure long-lasting results.
It goes without saying that all treatment at an inpatient addiction treatment facility is (and should always be) completely confidential.
Because Inpatient addiction treatment includes meals, accommodation and 24-hour staff, it naturally means that it is more expensive than outpatient treatment. However, it is important to remember when choosing an addiction treatment programme that price is not everything. Addiction remains a serious illness, and treatment centres should be chosen based on the effectiveness of the treatment programme as well as the qualifications of the clinical and medical staff on site.
In many cases, yes it is. However, In order to know for sure whether or not your insurance policy is accepted, it is advisable to get in contact with our highly trained staff and they can advise you properly.

Ketamine does not cause physical dependence in the same way that alcohol or heroin does. However, like many other ‘drugs of addiction’, psychological dependence can develop in those who use the drug repeatedly.
The dissociation from reality that ketamine users experience can be seductive in nature and can result in tremendous psychological dependence. Regular ketamine abuse will lead to a rapid growth in tolerance, meaning that a ketamine addict will need to constantly increase their dose of the drug to reach the desired effects, which can be very dangerous to the user.
Ketamine is commonly used for anaesthetic purposes in hospitals of veterinarian clinics. There is also a growing interest from the medical research fraternity in ketamine for other medical uses. Notwithstanding, ketamine abuse over long periods of time can result in serious health problems including the following:
Ketamine abuse and addiction is most commonly seen in the club drug scene. So, it is important to note that it is often mixed with alcohol, cocaine, meth, ecstasy, heroin and other drugs which can create lethal mixtures. Large doses of ketamine on its own can cause cardiac arrest, and the chances of this happening increase significantly when mixed with alcohol and other drugs.
As with all drug addictions, the chances of a successful recovery increase significantly when the addiction is addressed early on. If you or someone you love are suffering from an addiction to ketamine, call our office today for a free, no-obligation assessment to see how we can help.
