Klarisana

My story is definitely not typical, at the age of 15 I was heavily involved in gangs, and from 1996 to 1998 witnessed more violent deaths of friends in person than any person should ever have to go through. I spent the next decade being shuffled from doctor to doctor Facility to facility intake, outtake, behavioral health facilities, etc. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WORKED FOR ME!! then by chance I came across Klarisana ketamine treatment. With an open mind, I went in for my first treatment, after almost 30 years of dealing with the most PTSD, depressed, and anxious feelings that you could ever imagine I was taken to a place outside of the realm of reality, and for once felt like the chains of mental health were broken. My experience took me through all of my pain and experiences and elevated me to a higher state of consciousness and opened up my mind to actual mental health help! This is not your conventional way of treating mental health, although in my mind, it is 100% the most effective way for Certain peoples conditions. Now this might not be the same for everybody but for me personally, I have never felt free from my own mind until after I did the ketamine treatment. My only advice to anybody going through hard times that has done conventional mental health treatment with no success is open your mind to an alternative way to help yourself by ketamine treatment.

Year of 2020 I became bedridden because of unexplained symptoms, I went to doctor after
doctor, they just put me on meds that didn’t help and made me worse. I started becoming
extremely depressed and suicidal because I had no quality of life. In 2021 my husband was
listening to a podcast and they were talking about ketamine therapy, we decided to look into it and I started searching for clinics. After looking and looking, I put in my application at Klarisana, i was nervous I wouldn’t be accepted because it was my last hope, I had tried everything else.

By the next day they had reached out to me to schedule my consultation. Everyone was super sweet and kind, I ended up getting cleared to come in. I was TERRIFIED for my favorite
appointment, I ended up calling the day before to cancel because of how nervous I was. I spoke with Holly and she listened to all my concerns, and made me feel more at ease so I kept my appointment. Every treatment they are there to listen and genuinely care about your healing journey.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about klarisana and their staff. I’m SO glad I
kept my appointment, this has been a life changing experience for me. Healing takes time but I’ve slowly gotten my life back and I’m doing things I never thought I’d be able to do again, be patient in your healing journey and know it can get better.

I had been receiving Spravato/esketamine treatment for a few years before I moved to Colorado

and was able to access ketamine IMs through Klarisana. I was nervous about the difference, so I started with KAP sessions so that I would have someone with me in case I got scared during this new experience. My KAP therapist always met me where I was at throughout the session, and normalized/validated what I was going through. I continue to see her for integration therapy, and having her feedback helps me see the improvements I’ve made.

I was surprised to find that, despite my previous experience with Spravato and starting slow with KAP sessions, my body still got so scared before sessions. Rationally, I knew they always went smoothly, I didn’t get sick, and nothing scary happened, quite the opposite, but I couldn’t get the message through to my nervous system. The Klarisana staff were all very supportive and understanding of my anxiety, and helped create a relaxed, safe atmosphere for each session. I still get some pre-injection jitters, but I’m able to carry that felt sense of being comfortable and supported created by the staff into the session.

I’ve struggled with lifelong depression since childhood, and I am grateful and proud to report that my depression has been in remission September 2023. Ketamine is advertised as treatment for “treatment resistant” depression, but I think the other treatments were just the wrong approach. That’s clear to me because my mental health didn’t resist the right approach, and I wish I’d had access to this medication years ago.

I wanted to share my experience, but before I tell you about how Ketamine and more specifically Klarisana changed my life, I need to share my story. I am a deputy sheriff with
several patrol years of experience.

During that experience, I have held dead infants in my hands, been to a school shooting, had people shoot themselves in front of me, and had someone slit their throat in front of me. I have been involved in two officer involved shootings and was later diagnosed with PTSD.

I have been to countless calls that chipped away at my sanity and inner peace. The OIS(s) and my time on patrol left me hyperviligiant, numb, disconnected from my emotions, agitated, on edge, and anxious. To add onto it, my wife had an affair right after my first OIS which absolutely destroyed me.

I was absolutely devastated and left suicidal without a clear way out of my problems. I met with counselors and therapists and one pyschiatrist who honestly saved my life. I started medication which brought me to a base level and then was recommened to start Ketamine therapy with Klarisana. Being a deputy and concerned about how my brothers would view me, I was nervous to start.

The staff at Klarisana sat with me during my first appointment and answered all my questions before my first injection. They calmed me and did what they could to make me feel comfortable. The staff were awesome. The Ketamine series itself saved my life. After my series, I am at a good base level. I have not actually thought about hurting myself since before I started my series. I am much more calm and composed.

I am still dealing with my numbness through therapy but I no longer feel on edge all the time. I am much more relaxed and no longer hyperviligaint. I am looking at
possibly getting off my medicaiton.

I cannot say enough about Klarisana or about Ketamine therapy. I am so glad that I pushed through my feelings and started with Klarisana. If you are on the fence, take it from me that Ketamine therapy is worth your time and Klarisana is where you want to receive that treatment.

I wanted to convey my gratitude for the Klarisana staff’s patience, friendliness, sympathy and professionalism. Klarisana’s patients often face significant mental- and emotional challenges, and the positive, welcoming attitude of the staff can make a huge difference in “set and setting”—crucial elements of the psychotropic experience. Chelsea, Holly, Sean and Brett do an excellent job of preparation and guidance, and help turn what might otherwise be a transactional treatment into a very positive emotional experience. Their efforts are tremendously valuable to me and much appreciated

Hi there! I’m Liam

Ketamine therapy is like going into a hyper dream state where I have access to the smallest particles of my own mind. Going through this process helped me become the person I was meant to be.

Ketamine treatment allowed me to take a step back from all the things that were ailing me, witness them more without reacting, and not identify with them as much.
