    Under the leadership of Dr. Greg Clary, who is board certified in psychiatry and internal medicine, we have developed an office-based, medically supervised program which is consistent with protocols developed by leading university medical centers in the United States.

    Ketamine treatment involves the administration of the drug by intravenous infusion. Before administering the medication, a thorough psychiatric and medical assessment is undertaken by the Carolina Behavioral Care staff.  The treatment requires four to six sessions, usually every other day for intravenous infusion of Ketamine followed by appropriate monitoring. Follow-up psychiatric monitoring is coordinated by the Carolina Behavioral Care staff. Maintenance therapy is also offered based on individual responses.
