The stigma surrounding mental health issues has started to wane, but the struggle is very much real for those dealing with conditions like depression and anxiety. Fortunately, new forms of therapy are emerging, and ketamine is at the forefront of this therapeutic revolution. Roswell Infusions offers an oasis of hope for individuals seeking effective treatments, and our Ketamine Specialist and Community Liaison, Jessica Nosek, serves as a living testament to its life-changing power.
A Haven of Calm and Comfort
Roswell Infusions is more than a clinical setting; it’s a sanctuary for the soul. Picture this: As you enter, the soothing voice of Michael Pollan, bestselling author on psychedelics, fills the space, discussing the benefits of psilocybin. A Keurig machine stands ready to pour you a mug of calming herbal tea, as a sign instructing you to “Live well” greets you.
Meet Jessica Nosek: From Struggle to Advocacy
Jessica Nosek, our in-house Ketamine Specialist, has firsthand experience with the kind of life-changing relief that ketamine can provide. Jessica struggled with depression and anxiety for nearly 25 years. Despite trying multiple treatment avenues — antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, and even neurofeedback — she found no relief. In 2021, amidst a challenging divorce, she discovered ketamine therapy, and it transformed her life.
How Ketamine Works
For those unfamiliar with the subject, ketamine is primarily known as an anesthetic. However, in a clinical setting, low doses of ketamine have shown remarkable effectiveness in treating mental health conditions like depression and anxiety. It acts on the brain’s neurotransmitters, providing immediate relief and long-term benefits. During a ketamine treatment at Roswell Infusions, a certified registered nurse anesthetist administers a carefully controlled dose, ensuring safety and effectiveness.
Personalized Experience and Results
Each ketamine therapy session is tailored to the individual. You can recline comfortably in a chair, perhaps listening to your choice of music or embracing the silence. Jessica describes the ketamine experience as deeply personal and almost otherworldly. Some patients feel like they’re floating in space, while others feel like they’re at the bottom of the ocean. The commonality lies in its effectiveness; it suppresses the fear center of the brain, allowing you to process trauma and depression without overwhelming feelings of dread or sadness.
Addressing the Fear of a “Bad Trip”
It’s natural to have apprehensions about any new form of therapy, and Jessica understands this well. People often fear having a “bad trip,” especially given ketamine’s psychedelic effects. However, she assures that while the journey might sometimes be challenging, the results are overwhelmingly positive. In her case, ketamine not only alleviated her symptoms but also empowered her to be more functional in her relationships and career.
Success Story: A Life Transformed
Jessica’s success story is not just anecdotal evidence but an example of what can be achieved with the right treatment. She went from being unable to get out of bed and relying on alcohol and Xanax to leading a fulfilling life, advocating for a therapy she believes in, and looking forward to her upcoming marriage. As Jessica put it, she’s not just surviving; she’s living.
Share Your Story, Remove the Stigma
One of Jessica’s driving motivations is to share her story so that others might feel less isolated. Mental health struggles often come with a burden of shame and loneliness. However, by openly discussing these issues, we can collectively remove the stigma around mental health and explore more efficient treatment avenues like ketamine therapy.
