Ketamine for Thoughts of Self-Harm

What Is Ketamine?

Ketamine is a medication that is frequently employed as an anesthetic, typically in outpatient care or emergency departments, because of its exceptional safety record.

Ketamine treatment, also known as ketamine therapy or ketamine psychedelics, involves the use of this medication to alleviate symptoms of conditions that are often resistant to traditional treatments, like depression and suicidal thoughts.

If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, contact a trusted friend, mental health professional, or 24/7 help hotline, like the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline.

Why It’s a Preferred Treatment


Having been used for decades, ketamine is trusted within the medical profession and is backed by an outstanding safety record.


It’s very successful in improving mood because treatment targets the brain receptors responsible for those feelings.


Ketamine is FDA-approved and a legal psychedelic when administered by registered medical practitioners like those on our staff.


Because ketamine is typically delivered intravenously or by intramuscular injection, it’s incredibly fast-acting, often working within hours.

How Ketamine Compares to Traditional Medicine

Traditional treatments for thoughts of self-harm, like psychotherapy and psychiatric medications, can provide relief but often take weeks to take effect. That's because conventional antidepressants act on the serotonin system, which slowly reacts over time. That's time sufferers don't have.

At Resilience Integrative Wellness, ketamine for suicide ideation is administered intravenously, which means it's immediately in the bloodstream. Ketamine doesn't act upon the serotonin system and may provide relief within hours. Patients report significant reductions in suicidal thoughts after initial treatments, and thanks to our comprehensive approach that can involve the use of other psychedelics, many have gone on to lead happy, full lives.

Backed by Science

Evidence points to ketamine having an effect on glutamate, one of the most prominent neurotransmitters in the brain. Glutamate regulates large regions of the nervous system and ketamine helps block overactive receptors. It's also been shown to trigger a rapid growth of new neurological connections, which can help improve mood.
