Call them or schedule your appointment online to get started.

Depression/PTSD

What is depression?

Depression, or major depressive disorder, is a mental health disorder. People often associate depression with being sad, but someone living with depression is just as likely to feel a loss of interest in things they cared about before. Other symptoms of depression include:

  • Feeling worthless or guilty
  • Trouble concentrating and completing tasks
  • Feeling hopeless
  • Irritation
  • Changes in eating and/or sleep habits
  • Fatigue

Depression isn’t just sadness and, in most cases, you can’t just “get over it.” That’s because you didn’t cause it in the first place; it’s an imbalance in your brain. As such, it’s a clinical condition that requires treatment. And The Rose Center for Integrative Health is available to personalize a treatment plan for you so you can feel like yourself again.

What is PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder is another mental health condition. It’s caused by surviving a traumatic incident that alters your ability to interact normally with the world. PTSD is characterized by:

  • Intrusive memories (i.e., flashbacks)
  • Avoidance of people, places, and things that could cause flashbacks
  • Negative moods and thought patterns
  • Trouble relaxing and sleeping

If PTSD is getting in the way of your ability to enjoy a productive, happy life, talk to The Rose Center for Integrative Health. They offer specialized PTSD treatment. 

How are depression and PTSD treated?

Traditional treatments like talk therapy and mental health medications are effective for some patients with these mental health conditions. At The Rose Center for Integrative Health, however, you find access to the latest, most groundbreaking treatments for these disorders. 

Specifically, The Rose Center for Integrative Health offers ketamine therapy with Spravato™. When administered in small, medically monitored doses, this prescription ketamine has been shown to dramatically reduce mental health symptoms, helping patients build healthier, more balanced lives. In fact, it’s FDA-approved for use in patients with treatment-resistant depression. 

If you’ve tried other treatments but haven’t seen results, ketamine therapy could be right for you. It’s administered as a nasal spray. After taking Spravato, you stay at The Rose Center for Integrative Health for a couple of hours so they can monitor you. During that time, you relax as the medication goes to work. 

If you’re interested in learning more about this new, FDA-approved treatment option, don’t hesitate to contact The Rose Center for Integrative Health. Call them or schedule your appointment online today.
